Death end re;Quest 2 is a classic turn-based RPG sequel that asks the question: What happens when reality is consumed by darkness?

Can Mai find truth in Le Choara and save her sister?

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?

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 rumored 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.


System - Battle

Turn-Based Combat:

This game uses a turn-based command battle system. The order of turns is determined by each character's speed. At the start of each character's turn, they are able to move about freely on the field. You can choose to perform combos with your character, or attack from outside the enemy's range to keep them safe.

Triact System:

The Triact system allows players to take three actions in one turn. Actions include "Attack", "Item", "Guard" and "Skill". Selecting multiple of the same action can compound effects. For example, choosing "Attack, Guard, Guard" commands an attack and a strengthened guard, allowing you to strategize the potency of your skills.

Knockback System:

When using either "Action" or "Command", some attacks within the Triact can initiate a "Knockback", which blasts your enemies across the battlefield.

Knockbacks damage enemies, while also damaging "Field Bugs" - tiny glitches lurking around the battlefield that carry negative effects. If you blast an enemy monster into another, both receive additional damage. If an enemy is knocked into an ally, she may perform the "Knockblow" action, which allows her to strike the incoming foe for a devastating combo.

Glitch Mode:

Enhance your abilities to a mortifying degree with Glitch Mode. When Mai and the others step over Field Bugs or take damage, they will accumulate corruption. Once corruption surpasses a certain threshold, the character enters Glitch Mode. Each character has special skill that only can be used while in Glitch Mode.

Flash Drive:

The Flash Drive system allows characters to perform unique skills that initiate only when a certain skill combination is performed in the Triact. Each character has a variety of skills at their disposal, but some are only discoverable by performing them with the Flash Drive system. Experiment with skill combinations to complete all skill sets!

Field Bugs:

Creatures known as Field Bugs may appear on-screen. Coming into contact with them can harm or help your party members, as well as increase their Corruption Level.


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 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 is set to arrive for the PS4 and PC (Steam) on August 25, 2020 (August 28 in Europe).
