Today, Compile Heart released a new trailer of its upcoming JRPG Death End re;Quest.
The trailer showcases some gameplay, and more precisely the ability to enter Glitch Style, that lets characters be taken over by the glitches in the game, acquiring devastating powers. Apparently, the most relevant price for this is their clothes, so expect quite a lot of skin when you watch the video. It’s a Compile Heart game after all. What did you expect?
We also see some combat and traversal skills, that go from floating to ropes.
A look at the title’s many waifus (several of which are NPCs in the glitched virtual world, which have acquired a heart of their own) completes the video, alongside a rather creepy turn at the end. Basically, this seems to be Sword Art Online with a dark twist.
You can enjoy trailer below. If you want to see more, you can check out another trailer from last month showing more gameplay, a batch of artwork featuring the aforementioned waifus and their glitch style, a recent gallery of screenshots showing more characters and mechanics, an older batch of screenshots with the same focus, and even more images.
Death end re;Quest will release exclusively for PS4 on March 1st in Japan. No western release has been revealed for now, so but this being Compile Heart, a localization from Idea Factory International is certainly a possibility.
