Death End re;Quest 2

Today Idea Factory International narrowed down the release window for the west of Compile Heart’s JRPG Death End re;Quest 2.

The game moves from a generic “2020” window to a more specific “Summer 2020” window for both PS4 and PC. The PS4 version will get both physical and digital SKUs.

The PC version will include English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles and will come with the original glitch costumes from the first Death End re;Quest (following a vote among the fans) while the PS4 version will show less skin, featuring the same costumes created for the Japanese version of the sequel.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, below you can read an official description.


Mai Toyama seeks an escape from her traumatic past. She becomes enrolled 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.
