Protagonist Subaru is going to find himself in another tough situation (and another curse) when Re:Zero gets its first game. Rem & Ram show us a sneak peek of what’s to come in the game’s latest trailer.
In the upcoming Re:Zero game,the story revolves around a contest that features the five candidates to be the next ruler of Lugnica in a “Beauty Queen Election,” where the girls are judged by splendor, elegance, and other attributes. Winners are rewarded with a Metia that is said to bring good luck and more.
Just as Subaru was helping out with the preparations the day before the tournament, he ends up kissing the royal treasure by accident, and hears a voice telling him that he needs to get a kiss from the opposite gender in order to lift the curse that he got from the contest’s prized item.
While it sounds like a pretty simple task, there’s the catch that he’s not allowed to communicate to others about the kiss, and he’ll need to do so all while attempting to prevent the others from getting in touch with the cursed item.
Since he’s not allowed to talk about it, he’ll need to help one of the five contestants to get through the top of the popularity polls in order to get the item before anyone else gets cursed, but knowing Subaru and all the troubles we’ve seen him go through, it likely won’t be an easy task for the hero.
