Idea Factory International announced that the horror RPG Death end re;Quest 2 will head West in 2020 for PlayStation 4.
The game is a collaboration between Corpse Party series scenario writer Makoto Kedouin and Death end re;Quest character designer Kei Nanameda. The sequel has a theme of “What happens when reality is consumed by darkness?”
The story is told through the eyes of protagonist Mai Toyama. She’s looking for her sister in the mysterious town of Le Choara. However, the town has all kinds of secrets for players to discover. You might even see some familiar faces.
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.

- 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.

Run away from the Berserker in the dungeon or defeat all the existing monsters in the battlefield to escape!
