Death end re;Quest 2 Heads West on PC and PS4, 2020

Death end re;Quest 2

Idea Factory International have announced Death end re;Quest 2 will be heading west, to Windows PC, and PlayStation 4.

While previously confirmed for PlayStation 4, the title has now been confirmed as coming to Windows PC via Steam. The Steam version will also have English, Japanese, and Traditional Chinese subtitles.

The blog also shows images from the Japanese version of the game. As such, we do not know if the game will suffer any censorship of the characters more exposing costumes. We will keep you posted as we learn more.

From the scenario writer of the Corpse Party series (Makoto Kedouin), players control Mai Toyama, searching for her younger sister in the town of Le Choara. Her search is hindered by Shadow Matter- monsters that roam the night.

During the day Mai searches for her sister, but at night she can batter enemies, knock them into her allies, and overkill them for more rewards. She just needs to stay ahead of the Berserker.

You can find the full rundown (via Idea Factory International) 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.

Key Features

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 launches 2020 for Windows PC (via Steam), and PlayStation 4 in the west. The game is already out on PlayStation 4 in Japan.
