A demo for Yoko Taro’s 404 GAME RE:SET is now available on mobile devices in Japan ahead of its April 25, 2023 release date. It is not on the North American app store. Yoko Taro also added that there will be characters from Bandai Namco, Taito, Capcom, and SNK in this game.

According to Yoko Taro’s announcement, he didn’t expect much when he asked about the collaboration characters in the game, but the various producers did their best to get permission. Since this is Yoko Taro, this might be an exaggeration of actual events. But even so, there must have been quite a bit of paperwork in the back to get all these different characters from different studios in 404 GAME RE:SET.

The demo, 404 GAME RE:SET ProloguE, will tell the story from the viewpoint of a certain researcher. The events of this demo will take place prior to the actual game. For reference, 404 GAME RE:SET is set in a dystopian world that Sega has taken over. Along with famous games throughout history (who look like pretty anime girls), you must kill Sega and save the world.

Classic games that Sega already confirmed will be obtainable characters include Space Harrier, Pongo, Crazy Taxi, and Virtua Racing. Plenty of established voice actors will be in it as well. For example, Yumiri Hanamori (Nemo in Fate/Grand Order, Yanfei in Genshin Impact) will be Space Harrier. Meanwhile, Mariya Ise (Killua in Hunter x Hunter 2011, Ray in The Promised Neverland) will be Crazy Taxi.

404 GAME RE:SET will come out on iOS and Android devices in Japan and its release date is April 25, 2023. The demo for the game, which serves as a prologue, is now available.
