Compile Heart’s genre-bending title is here!
Idea Factory International has announced the official release of Death end re;Quest in North America.
Death end re;Quest follows the story of video game programmer Arata Mizunashi who, after receiving an email from his colleague, Shina Ninomiya, who went missing almost a year ago, delves into the world of his very own game — World’s Odyssey — to save her. Playing through the game won’t be all fun and games, however. With a measly 1% chance of successfully obtaining the game’s perfect ending — the only way to free Shina — and a bug-infested world to deal with along the way, Arata certainly has the odds stacked against him.
For more information on the game, you can check out the list of key features below:
- Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction? – Jump between reality and in-game modes, as players will need to investigate in the real world to solve the mysterious inner-workings of the World Odyssey, and switch to an in-game view mode to battle against glitched-out monsters. Choose options wisely, as your decision can change the game’s ending!
- Turn-based RPGs Flipped Upside Down – In this turn-based command battle system, you can roam freely and duke it out with fearsome monsters. During battles, players can change the game’s genre from a first-person shooter to even a fighting game!
- You’re Buggin’ Out – While exploring, players will need to activate character-specific dungeon skills to access hard-to-reach areas and hidden treasures!
- Follow the White Rabbit and Discover a Bug Infested World – In this hyper-realistic game world, players must help out Shina escape a game universe filled with infected bosses and mesmerizing environments!
Death end re;Quest is now available both physically and digitally in North America. Additionally, a Season Pass will be available for purchase for $19.99 beginning on February 22.
