Horror RPG aficionados will be able to dive into Idea Factory’s Death end re;Quest 2 when it hits the PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe in 2020.
Created in collaboration with Corpse Party scenario writer Makoto Kedouin and the original Death end re;Quest character designer Kei Nanameda, Death end re;Quest2 poses the question: “What happens when reality is consumed by darkness?”
The story of this title follows Mai Toyama, who seeks out an escape from her traumatic past. She soon enrolls herself in the all-girls dormitory Wordsworth, located in the mountainous town of Le Choara. Her sister Sanae was last seen in this small town, but Mai soon finds out that there are terrifying inhabitants known as Shadow Matter lurking in the area after dark.
As players take on this title’s battles and dungeon exploration, players can utilize the Overkill system to stack damage and the Knockback system to knock enemies to other party members. Through it all, players must be mindful of the Berserker, which has the power to instantly kill in a single shot.
