Death end re;Quest 2 Announced for Europe and North America

Do you have what it takes to rescue your sister in a small, mountain town haunted by horrific creatures at night? Death end re;Quest 2 officially releases in North America and Europe in 2020!

Written by Makoto Kedouin (Corpse Party) with character designs by the original game’s artist, Kei Nanameda, Death end re;Quest 2 follows Mai Toyama as she tracks down her missing sister in the small town of Le Choara. She enrolls in the all-girls school, Wordsworth, in hopes to find her, but the town is haunted by Shadow Matter, horrifying creatures that only come out at night.

Idea Factory International describes the features of Death end re;Quest 2:

Overkill Brings Huge Rewards — The Overkill system is an added feature where characters can stack damage beyond the health of an enemy for bonus experience! Try to inflict as much damage to all the monsters for bigger rewards.

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. Mai and her squad must step away from the Berserker’s area of attack, as it will instantly kill anyone with one single blow. Run away from the Berserker in the dungeon or defeat all the existing monsters in the battlefield to escape!

Day n’ Night — Mai will need to explore the town of Le Choara during the day and speak with the townspeople to find out clues as to where her sister is. By night, Mai will fight her way through dark creatures stylized in a turn-based RPG. Experience the story through the lens of a visual novel during the day and battle it out against horrific creatures by night!

Don’t Call it a Knockback — The Knockback system is back in Death end re;Quest 2, but this time, Mai and her squad can smack Shadow Matter even harder! Combo your attacks by flinging monsters to other party members!

Death end re;Quest 2 releases on PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe sometime in 2020. In the meantime, check out our review of the first game.
