Idea Factory International released new details for their romance visual novel Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation, which was recently delayed from its scheduled June 18 release date to July 23 in North America and July 26 in Europe on PlayStation 4 and July 23 worldwide on PC-via Steam.
The developer released details for the main protagonist’s adopted sister Kotori Itsuka, also known as Efreet. Her outfit is typically completed by her trademark white ribbons as she plays the role of a doe-eyed younger sister. That is until she wears her black ribbons until she becomes the commander of the secret organization Ratatoskr, who aims to stop the spacequakes by interacting with the Spirits. She loves lollipops and is a manifestation of the angel Camael.
Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation adds a brand new character, Rio, to the game. Evidentally, she just shows up and calls Shido “Papa” and is searching for the “most important thing.” Now, I know those who have never heard of this series are left in the dark about all this, but thankfully the Rio Reincarnation version of the game includes both Rinne Utopia and Arusu Install, which were released on PlayStation 3, to catch you up.
Each visual novel is around 40 hours long and allows the player to spend time with the 11 different characters and choose from over 150 dating events. Throughout the story, players will make choices that affect each girl’s feelings for the player and how they interact with him. Illustrations in the game have also been given some life as the characters react to your conversations and move their mouths.
The PS4 version of the game will have 2 modified CG images, while the PC release will have all original CGs.
