Developer Compile Heart has announced a total of six new projects alongside a new management structure that has taken effect since October 1, with Naoto Tominaga as president and Hikaru Yasui as director.
Of these new games, one of the most significant is Death end re;Quest Code Zion, a spinoff connected to the two mainline entries. Not much information was shared regarding this project besides a few character renders and the fact that it’s planned to launch in Japan in Summer 2024 for unspecified platforms.
Additionally, because the title is a spinoff, the developer will be able to be more creative with the overall direction, setting itself apart from the mainline series. We’ll keep you all updated on this exciting project. It’s worth noting that this title is tentative, meaning it may not be final.

Death End Re;Quest 2’s story stars Mai Toyama, who is seeking an escape from her traumatic past. She finds herself enrolled in an all-girls dormitory known as Wordsworth in Le Choara. She finds herself there searching for her sister, Sanae, who was last seen in the city. However, she soon discovers that the town turns into 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.
The gameplay has players exploring dungeons and fighting monsters. The battle system is turn-based, where players will aim to knock back 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.
