Every choice Mai makes may lead her to finding her sister… In this week’s update, we have brand-new gameplay screenshots for the horror-inspired RPG, Death end re;Quest™ 2

Screenshots: Gameplay

Death end re;Quest 2 will launch on Steam on August 18. The physical and digital release for the PlayStation®4 in North America and Europe will launch on August 25 and August 28, respectively. 

The Steam version will contain the original Glitch costumes for the first game’s characters and will have English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles. The first game’s characters only appear in their Glitch costumes during battle and in the main menu. The Steam version will implement the original Glitch costumes in both instances.

In collaboration with the scenario writer of the Corpse Party series, Makoto 
Kedouin, and the character designer of the original Death end re;Quest, Kei Nanameda, Death end re;Quest 2 is a sequel that asks the question: What happens when reality is consumed by darkness?​​

During the day, players will experience the Visual Novel aspect of the game. Mai will be able to interact with the residents of Wordsworth Dormitory and various townfolk in Le Choara. 

The majority of the narrative can be experienced within the events that occur during the day. It is highly recommended to view all the events possible. Doing so can result in many different rewards.  


When night falls, players will encounter frightening monsters and experience the RPG elements in Death end re;Quest 2. As Mai and her friends explore Le Choara, monsters, known as Shadow Matter, will chase them as soon as they’re spotted.

Equip Mai and her friends in the Camp located at each save point and be ready to tackle any Shadow Matter that comes your way.    

Your Choices

As players progress through the game, there will be moments where you will need to make a decision that could affect how your narrative will progress. These decisions can change the lives of those residing in Le Choara and can also possibly lead your party to a Death end (Game Over).

With the Episode Chart system, players are able to track the events they’ve experienced or events yet to be seen. It is highly recommended to save often, so players can revisit missing event scenes. Unlock additional special events by taking on missions given by the Shoekeeper (Shop). Keep an eye out on the Episode Chart and the Shoekeeper to get the full experience of the Death end re;Quest 2 story!   


The Death end re;Quest 2 Limited Edition  will be available for preorder soon. Customers can choose between the PlayStation 4 or Steam versions.

Mai Toyama seeks an escape from her traumatic past. She becomes enrolled at Wordsworth, an all-girl’s dormitory situated in the small, mountainous town known as Le Choara where it was rumoured that her sister, Sanae, was last seen. Hopeful, Mai seeks to find her kin, but she soon finds terrifying inhabitants which lurk throughout the town after dark. At night, Le Choara’s streets are filled with Shadow Matter—a horrific group of menacing creatures. Around every cobblestone corner, Mai discovers that her hope of finding her sister lies beneath the long-buried secrets which haunt Le Choara.

Key Features

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 allows Mai and her squad to smack Shadow Matter against walls, other enemies, and even to other party members for vicious combos. And if you time your attacks just right, you might even be able to trigger Super Knockbacks and Super Knockblows.
