'Death end re;Quest' (PS4) Shows Off Dungeon Navigation And Bug Skills - Screens

by Rainier on Nov. 20, 2018 @ 4:28 p.m. PST

Death end re;Quest takes the classic turn-based RPG and turns it on its head, allowing players to change the game's genre and switch game modes from RPG into fighting, shooter, and even a slot mode!

With a 99% fail rate, how willing are you to save a long lost friend?

Arata Mizunashi, a video game programmer, receives a notification from an email sent to him by Shina Ninomiya, a colleague of his who went missing nearly one year ago. Together, they worked to create World’s Odyssey (W.O.D.), an immersive virtual landscape powered by breathtaking, state-of-the-art technology. That is, until Shina's sudden disappearance put a swift halt to production. Arata discovers the startling revelation that Shina Ninomiya was stuck inside of “W.O.D.” the whole time. When Arata delves hurriedly back into the lines of code haunting his forsaken project, he realizes that his game is now ravaged by an infestation of bugs, and that Shina is its only active player.

Arata soon learns that a nefarious force prevents him from extracting Shina out of the game. Her only way out? She must complete the game to unlock the perfect ending—an outcome with a success rate of 1%. On their journey, they encounter a slew of NPC characters that blur perceptions of humanity and A.I.-technology, setting into a motion a thrilling narrative that calls into question the differences between the virtual world and ours.

Little do they know what horrors await them on both sides of the screen...

You'll also be able to jump at will between the in-game world and the real world to investigate your missing friend, unlocking one of multiple endings. Choose wisely as lines between fantasy and reality will begin to blur...


When exploring the mystical dungeons of the World's Odyssey, players will come across areas filled with impossible gaps, high-to-reach places, and even molten lava. With character-specific Bug Skills, players can access these areas with ease!

Bug Skills are unique skills that each party member in World's Odyssey can use to traverse through impossible gaps, high places, and even molten lava.

Check out each character's unique Bug Skills below!

  • Shina: Spider Rodeo - Creates webs to leap onto large-scale platforms
