The upcoming Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- The Prophecy of the Throne is a tactical adventure game with an original story based around the first season of the Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- anime, and was completely supervised by the series author Tappei Nagatsuki. The character designs were done by the series artist, Shinichirou Otsuka, and Subaru’s Return by Death ability is an important aspect of the game system, much like in the original works.
One month after Subaru’s new life in another world began, an emissary sent by the royal castle suddenly appears with news that the royal selection has been postponed, but offers no reason as to why. The postponement of this grand event that decides the next ruler of the Kingdom of Lugunica stirs Subaru and his friends into action. They return to the royal capital only to find that a sixth candidate has claimed their stake for the throne. But the Dragon Stone prophesizes that only five candidates would be chosen. With one candidate being an imposter, suspicions are immediately cast toward one woman in particular: Emilia. What answers lie beyond the mysterious web of assassinations, betrayal, and conspiracies…?
