Today Spike Chunsoft Announced a brand new game from the light novel and anime series Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World.
The game is titled “Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Itsuwarino Ou Sen Kouo,” which translates as “Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World – The False Royal Election Candidate.”
It was actually leaked by the British arm of Amazon as “Re:Zero The Prophecy of the Throne” so it’s safe to assume that it’ll be coming west at some point, even if the Spike Chunsoft didn’t say the official word just yet.
It’ll be released for PS4, Switch, and PC this winter and it’s a hybrid between a visual novel and a tactical JRPG.
The story is based on the first season of the anime about a month after the beginning of the story, and it’s centered on the royal election.
The character design for the game is by Shinichirou Ootsuka, who illustrated the light novel series.
If you’re unfamiliar with the franchise, it debuted in 2012 with a light novel series by Tappei Nagatsuki, which sparked plenty of manga and anime series, and even a visual novel by 5pb.
Below you can see the first screenshots of Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World – The False Royal Election Candidate.
