According to Wekely Famitsu, Death end re;Quest 2 will follow three girls living in a women’s dormitory, who get caught up in mysterious phenomena and conspiracies as boarding students go missing one after the other. One of the main characters are named Mai Touyama, Rotten Dollheart, and Liliana Piata.
Fans who have played the first game will be glad to hear that Shina Ninomiya, Summer Life, and Lydia Nolan will make a return in the sequel.
As far as its setting goes, the sequel will be set in a fictional town called Liz Soara, which was created in the image of southeastern Europe. Just like its predecessor, fans can look forward to a somewhat horror-genre.
Gamers who missed out the first game, it is now available for PS4 and PC via Steam. Here’s an overview of the first game, via Steam:
Arata Mizunashi, a video game programmer, receives a notification from an email sent to him by Shina Ninomiya, a colleague of his who went missing nearly one year ago. Together, they worked to create World’s Odyssey (W.O.D.), an immersive virtual landscape powered by breathtaking, state-of-the-art technology. That is, until Shina’s sudden disappearance put a swift halt to production. Arata discovers the startling revelation that Shina Ninomiya was stuck inside of “W.O.D.” the whole time. When Arata delves hurriedly back into the lines of code haunting his forsaken project, he realizes that his game is now ravaged by an infestation of bugs, and that Shina is its only active player.
Arata soon learns that a nefarious force prevents him from extracting Shina out of the game. Her only way out? She must complete the game to unlock the perfect ending—an outcome with a success rate of 1%. On their journey, they encounter a slew of NPC characters that blur perceptions of humanity and A.I.-technology, setting into a motion a thrilling narrative that calls into question the differences between the virtual world and ours.
Little do they know what horrors await them on both sides of the screen…
There’s currently no release date or pricing. So far, the game has only been announced in Japan but nothing yet for North America. Seeing how its predecessor was released in North America, it’s very likely the sequel will come west.
