Idea Factory International have announced changes in the release date for Death end re;Quest 2; including the game coming to Windows PC earlier.
While the game was originally slated to release in the west on August 25th on all previously announced platforms, new dates have been confirmed. The game will now launch on August 18th on Windows PC via Steam. On PlayStation 4, the game will launch on August 25th in North America, and August 28th in Europe.
In case you missed our prior coverage, the game focuses on Mai Toyama, who enrolls at Wordsworth all-girls school in the mountainous town of Le Choara. Hoping to find her lost sister Sanae, she instead finds terrifying monsters roaming the town at night- Shadow Matter.
While exploring Le Choara and talking to the townsfolk in the day, at night the player must explore dungeons and fight against dark monsters. Overkilling enemies brings rewards, and knocking foes into other allies ranks up the damage.
In earlier news, Idea Factory International confirmed the game would not be censored on Windows PC, though would remain censored on PlayStation 4.
You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.
Mai Toyama seeks an escape from her traumatic past. She enrolls at Wordsworth, an all-girl’s dormitory situated in the small, mountainous town known as Le Choara where it was rumored that her sister, Sanae, was last seen. Hopeful, Mai seeks to find her kin, but she soon finds terrifying inhabitants which lurk throughout the town after dark. At night, Le Choara’s streets are filled with Shadow Matter—a horrific group of menacing creatures. Around every cobblestone corner, Mai discovers that her hope of finding her sister lies beneath the long-buried secrets which haunt Le Choara.
Overkill Brings Huge Rewards – The Overkill system is an added feature where characters can stack damage beyond the health of an enemy for bonus experience! Try to inflict as much damage to all the monsters for bigger rewards.
Beware of the Berserker – During dungeon exploration and battle, a faceless, black figure will appear out of nowhere. The figure will also display an area of attack once it appears. Mai and her squad must step away from the Berserker’s area of attack, as it will instantly kill anyone with one single blow. Run away from the Berserker in the dungeon or defeat all the existing monsters in the battlefield to escape!
Day n’ Night – Mai will need to explore the town of Le Choara during the day and speak with the townspeople to find out clues as to where her sister is. By night, Mai will fight her way through dark creatures stylized in a turn-based RPG. Experience the story through the lens of a visual novel during the day and battle it out against horrific creatures by night!
Don’t Call it a Knockback – The Knockback system is back in Death end re;Quest 2, but this time, Mai and her squad can smack Shadow Matter even harder! Combo your attacks by flinging monsters to other party members!
Death end re;Quest 2 is available in Japan, and August 18th in the west on Windows PC (via Steam), August 25th on PlayStation 4 in North America (August 28th in Europe).
