Sega revealed more detailed information about twelve characters who will be in 404 GAME RE:SET. These characters are all references to retro games. Some of these characters have previously appeared in announcements for the game, but this is our first time getting a good look at their artwork. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
404 GAME RE:SET will take place in a dystopian world where Sega reigns supreme. You will fight alongside anthropomorphized games that have made their marks on history. Everyone has an Anode and a Cathode form, which shows if the characters have been purified or not. The games that will appear as “pretty anime girls” are:
- Altered Beast (VA: Akira Sekine – Akira Kazama in Street Fighter V)
- Columns (VA: Hitomi Ueda – Gold Ship in Uma Musume)
- Crazy Taxi (VA: Mariya Ise – Consort Yu in Fate/Grand Order)
- Dynamite Cop (VA: Misaki Watada – Glenda in Strike the Blood)
- Fighting Vipers (VA: Kaede Hondo – Sakura Minamoto in Zombie Land Saga)
- Golden Axe (VA: Yume Miyamoto – Rikka Takarada in SSSS.Gridman)
- Hang-on (VA: Natsumi Fujiwara – Abigail Jones in Great Pretender)
- Pongo (VA: Ari Ozawa – Chiyo in Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun)
- Space Harrier (VA: Yumiri Hanamori – Yanfei in Genshin Impact)
- The House of the Dead (VA: Miku Ito – Miku Nakano in The Quintessential Quintuplets)
- Thunder Blade (VA: Mikako Komatsu – Maki in Jujutsu Kaisen)
- Virtua Racing (VA: Haruka Shiraishi – Aponia in Honkai Impact 3rd)
The demo for 404 GAME RE:SET is readily available in the Japanese app stores. It serves as a prologue for the story. As well, it will give a good look at how the game will play.
404 GAME RE:SET will come out on mobile devices in Japan on April 25, 2023.
