Idea Factory International announced that the Compile Heart-developed RPG Death End Re;Quest 2 will launch on PC alongside the PlayStation 4 when it releases later in 2020.
Death End Re;Quest 2 was created in collaboration with Makoto Kedouin, scenario writer of the Corpse Party series, with Kei Nanameda returning as character designer on the project. The game focuses on what happens when the reality is consumed by darkness.
Death End Re;Quest 2’s story stars Mai Toyama, who is seeking an escape from her traumatic past. She finds herself inrolled in an all-girls dormitory known as Wordsworth, in Le Choara. She finds herself there as she searches for her sister, Sanae, who was last seen in the city. However, she soon discovers that the town turns to a nightmare during the night as the streets are filled with what is known as Shadow Matter, a group of creatures. As Mai explores more, she gets closer to the truth of her sister’s whereabouts.
Gameplay has players exploring dungeons and fighting monsters. The battle system is turn-based, where players will aim to knockback enemies into walls and other enemies to cause extra damage. The game also features a day and night cycle where you gather clues during the die and fight for your life at night. The series returns with visual novel and RPG elements.
