Already out in Japan, Death End re;Quest 2, surprisingly, is the sequel to Death End re;Quest – a horror RPG that asks the question: What happens when reality is consumed by darkness? Created by Makoto Kedouin, the scenario writer for the Corpse Party series and the character designer for the first Death end re;Quest, Kei Nanameda, the story is told through the eyes of Mai Toyama who searches for her younger sister in the mysterious town, Le Choara.
What’s so mysterious about Le Choara? It’s the inhabitants that occupy it after dark. The streets are filled with Shadow Matter; creatures that lurk in the darkness, terrifying the locals. Mai must take on these monsters all the while uncovering the whereabouts of her sister, Sanae.
Here are just some of the key features to expect in Death end re;Quest 2, developed by Compile Heart (site is in Japanese!)
Overkill Brings Huge Rewards – The Overkill system is an added feature where characters can stack damage beyond the health of an enemy for bonus experience! Try to inflict as much damage to all the monsters for bigger rewards.
Beware of the Berserker – During dungeon exploration and battle, a faceless, black figure will appear out of nowhere. The figure will also display an area of attack once it appears. Mai and her squad must step away from the Berserker’s area of attack, as it will instantly kill anyone with one single blow. Run away from the Berserker in the dungeon or defeat all the existing monsters in the battlefield to escape!
Day n’ Night – Mai will need to explore the town of Le Choara during the day and speak with the townspeople to find out clues as to where her sister is. By night, Mai will fight her way through dark creatures stylized in a turn-based RPG. Experience the story through the lens of a visual novel during the day and battle it out against horrific creatures by night!
Don’t Call it a Knockback – The Knockback system is back in Death end re;Quest 2, but this time, Mai and her squad can smack Shadow Matter even harder! Combo your attacks by flinging monsters to other party members!
Currently available in Japan, Death end re;Quest 2 will have a release date announced for later in the year.
