The horror-inspired RPG Death end re;Quest 2 was previously announced for August 25. However, the new Steam release date is now set for one week earlier.
The digital version launches on Steam on August 18. Meanwhile, the physical and digital versions for PlayStation 4 are still set to launch on August 25 in North America and on August 28 in Europe. It was released in Japan earlier this year.
“The Steam version contains the original Glitch costumes for the first game’s characters,” says publisher Idea Factory. “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 addition, Idea Factory says that the Steam version has English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles. The publisher also released the last batch of character profiles.
A girl who appears to be generous, but can flip a switch when crossed. Christina is known for her inferiority complex, which she sometimes takes out on Paula despite her being one of the only people she can talk to.
A bookish, innocent young lady. She is comfortable speaking to anyone and everyone, which sometimes gets her into trouble. As a teen, she was often neglected by others at Wordsworth, so she is eager for attention. She becomes teary-eyed and anxious when ignored.
The “cool cat” of Wordsworth, she is often seen reading a book or sporting a standoffish expression without the company of others. Despite her nihilistic outlook, there are a few things that can bring a sparkle to her eye when presented.
A condescending young lady whose family once boasted a great fortune. Although her family is no longer wealthy, she still looks down on others, making her unsusceptible to Vina’s bullying. Her demeanor is a defense mechanism from the embarrassment of falling down the social caste, but she has become close with Mercy, to whom she is still snobbish.
A tomboy who is good friends with Elizabeth, as the latter saved her from being bullied by Vina. Since then they’ve been inseparable.
