Today Idea Factory International released a new trailer of the upcoming JRPG by Compile Heart Death End Re;Quest.
The trailer is of the cinematic sort and conveys the mood of the game, which is peculiarly dark for Compile Heart.
The story is about a programmer trapped in a virtual reality MMORPG that glitched out and her colleague who has to lead her to safety before it’s too late.
Basically, it’s a darker and creepier version of Sword Art Online, but with the same amount of waifus. It’s a Compile Heart game, after all, so a shortage of heroines would be rather shocking.
The game’s dark atmosphere shouldn’t surprise considering that the scenario is written by Makoto Kedouin of Corpse Party fame. The character design by Kei Nanameda will also probably prove familiar to Compile Heart fans.
Death end re;Quest has already been released in Japan and will come to North America in just a few days on Feb. 19, 2019. European gamers will have to wait a little longer, until Feb. 22.
