Idea Factory International has released the opening movie for Death end re;Quest’s English release in early 2019, as well as more information on the game.
Here’s an introduction to the game, courtesy of Idea Factory:
Death end re;Quest takes the classic turn-based RPG and turns it on its head. Players are able to change the game’s genre and switch game modes from RPG into fighting, shooter, and even a slot mode! You’ll also be able to jump at will between the in-game world and the real world to investigate your missing friend, unlocking one of multiple endings. Choose wisely as lines between fantasy and reality will begin to blur…
Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction? – Jump between reality and in-game modes, as players will need to investigate in real world view to solve the mysterious inner-workings of the World Odyssey, and switch to an in-game view mode to battle against glitched-out monsters. Choose options wisely, as your decision can change the game’s ending!
Turn-Based RPGs Flipped Upside Down – In this turn-based command battle system, you can roam freely and duke it out with fearsome monsters. During battle, players can change the game’s genre from a first-person shooter to even a fighting game!
You’re Buggin’ Out – While exploring, players can activate special skills that would normally be seen as game bugs like super jumps, flying, and even clipping through walls, plus activate character-specific dungeon skills to explore even more!
