Idea Factory International announced that the PC version of the Compile Heart-developed RPG Death End Re;Quest 2 will include the original glitch costumes for its western release later this summer.
The publisher hosted a poll to ask fans if they would like the original costumes added to the PC version of the game with a few drawbacks. Evidently, the fans wanted them in. During gameplay, characters can transform during an event known as “Glitch.” Aside from becoming stronger and gaining a few new abilities, the character changes into a new costume that shows some skin. In the latest entry, some of the old costumes have been altered, which cover up more surface area than in Death end re;Quest, which released on PlayStation 4 and PC.
However, the PS4 version of Death End Re;Quest 2 will contain the new costumes as this change only applies to the PC version of the game. The inclusion of the original costumes affects in-game character models in battle, the field, and menus. CGs and scenarios will show the edited version of the costumes in the event that they appear. This was due to development costs.
Additionally, the publisher revealed that closed beta registration is now open for the Steam version of the game. Players can apply for a chance to play the game early for testing. Players must be over the age of 19 and submit their rig information. The test will take place from June 15 through June 17.
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.
