'Death end re;Quest' (PS4) Shows Off Advanced Battle Tactics And Install Genre - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 5, 2018 @ 1:38 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...


The Battle System (Pt. 2) - Advanced Battle Tactics Trailer introduces Bug Skills, Battle Jack System, and Glitch Mode Attacks.

Bug Skills are unique skills that each of your party member has. Within each dungeon, players will come across areas that will require you to use Bug Skills to unlock areas and reach hard-to-reach places.

The Battle Jack System is a feature which allows Arata to assist you in-game as soon as field bugs reach 50% or lower. Here, the Battle Jack System includes the Code Jack System, Install Genre, and Summon.

  • Code Jack is a system that allows you to either buff your allies or debuff your enemies.
  • Install Genre is a feature where players can change the gameplay by switching up the genre into action, fighting, slot, shooter, puzzle, and even billiards. Choose wisely as each genre install lasts for one turn.
  • Summon is a feature that allows players to summon Entoma Queens that are collected after defeating them in previous battles. Entoma Queens can help tank for your party members, allowing you to regroup, heal, and buff up!

Key Features

  • Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction? – Jump between reality and in-game modes, as players will need to investigate in real world view to solve the mysterious inner-workings of the World Odyssey, and switch to an in-game view mode to battle against glitched-out monsters. Choose options wisely, as your decision can change the game’s ending!​
  • Turn-Based RPGs Flipped Upside Down – In this turn-based command battle system, you can roam freely and duke it out with fearsome monsters. During battle, players can change the game’s genre from a first-person shooter to even a fighting game!
  • You’re Buggin’ Out – While exploring, players will need to activate character-specific dungeon skills to access hard-to-reach areas and hidden treasures!
  • ​Follow the White Rabbit and Discover a Bug Infested World – In this hyper-realistic game world, players must help out Shina escape a game universe filled with infected bosses and mesmerizing environments!
