'Death end re;Quest' (ALL) Comes to Nintendo Switch Next Month - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 4, 2021 @ 5:53 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...


You can preorder the physical standard edition on Limited Run Games or add it to your wishlist on IFI’s NA Online Store. The Nintendo eShop page will be available at a later date.

The Switch release includes all of the free and paid DLC originally available on the PS4 version, as well as all original game content found in the Japanese version.

Key Features

  • Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction? – Choose between jumping into reality and in-game modes. Investigate the real world in the form of a visual novel to solve what lies underneath World Odyssey. Or dive into World's Odyssey, where Shina can explore its dungeons and battle its enemies. Every choice made in both real and in-game modes can affect who will live to see another day or who will unearth the dark truths of World’s Odyssey.
  • Turn-Based RPGs Flipped Upside Down – In this turn-based battle system, players can freely roam and duke it out with glitched-out monsters. Smack them into walls and to your party members to activate “Knockback” combos. And when certain conditions are met, players can change the game’s genre from fighting, shooting, slot, puzzle, and billiards! Players can also utilize “Field Bugs” scattered throughout the battlefield to increase a character’s Corruption – a key feature to transform characters into Glitch Mode! 
  • You’re Glitchin’ Out – Transform your party into an unstoppable force with Glitch Mode! In Glitch Mode, your base stats are increased and special attacks can now be activated! But be wary, as there are downsides with too much power. Players will also need to activate character-specific dungeon skills or “Bug Skills” to access hard-to-reach areas and hidden treasures!
  • Explore the First Installment in this Glitched-Out World – The World’s Odyssey is now ready to be explored on-the-go for the Nintendo Switch! Newcomers and veterans of the series can traverse through the first installment of this hyper-realistic game world with all of the free and paid DLC originally available on the PS4 version, including the DLC character, Ripuka!
  • ​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!

Currently available for PS4 and PC, Death end re;Quest is coming to Nintendo Switch on April 27, 2021.
