Idea Factory International released new English screenshots for the Compile Heart-developed RPG Death End Re;Quest 2, coming to PC-via Steam on August 18, and PlayStation 4 on August 25.
The publisher details how, when night falls during the game, monsters will roam the environments, and players will have to explore the town of Le Choara under threat. These creatures, known as Shadow Matter, will chase after the party if spotted and initiate a battle.
Additionally, the publisher details how player-choice will play a part in the direction of the story. During the dialogue, players make choices that affect the narrative and can also send players to a quick game over. Players can use an Episode Chart system to track the events so they can see which ones they’ve accessed. There are also special events that occur by taking on missions at the shop.
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.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on any new information about the game’s launch.
There’s also a Limited Edition that will be available soon.
