Spike Chunsoft announced a new adventure game for Re:Zero titled Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World- The False Royal Selection Candidate for PS4, Switch, and PC via Steam.
The game appears to be the same title, Re:Zero – The Prophecy of the Throne, found via Amazon U.K. listing earlier this week. That said, it is actually a brand-new title and not an updated version of Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World – Death or Kiss which released for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan in March 2017.
Check out some of the new screenshots below:
One month after Subaru’s new life in another world began, an emissary sent by the Royal castle suddenly appears with news that the Royal selection has been postponed, but offers no reason as to why. The postponement of this grand event that decides the next ruler of the kingdom of Lugunica stirs Subaru and his friends into action. They return to the Royal Capital only to find that a sixth candidate has claimed their stake for the throne. But the Dragon Stone prophesizes that only five Candidates would be chosen. With one candidate being an imposter, suspicions are immediately cast toward One woman in particular: Emilia. What answers lie beyond the mysterious web of assassination, betrayal, and conspiracies…?
Re:Zero – The Prophecy of the Throne features an original “what if” story that is supervised by Re:Zero author Tappei Nagatsuki. As for the gameplay, this time the genre is “Tactical Adventure” that will have plenty of dying for Subaru going on. Thankfully, a special system will allow you to “time leap” back to certain points after Subaru experiences a death.
