This is a trial version that allows you to get a feel for the game. Includes main story (up to Episode 7), battle simulator (12 stages), Star Cube (character development), shop, and ship menu.
Demo version save data can be carried over to the full version, allowing you to continue playing from Episode 8 onward.
- Maximum unit level in the demo version is 30.
- Trophies cannot be earned in the demo version.
- Save data from PS4 demo version can be used in PS5 full version.
*The demo version can only be played if your PS4 or PS5 console language is set to Japanese, English, Traditional Chinese, or Korean. If your device is set to a different language, please change it to Japanese, English, Traditional Chinese, or Korean in order to play.
Kadokawa Games announced that they will release a public trial version of Relayer in Japan on February 25 at 18:00 JST. The demo will be available on both PlayStation 4 and 5. The demo will even support cross-platform save transfer, where save data from the PS4 trial can be brought directly to the PS5 full version.
This demo will have 9 story stages (up to the end of Chapter 2 in the main storyline) and 12 simulator stages. It will also have a hard level cap. Once a character has reached level 30, they will be no longer able to gain more experience or job points in the demo. They will have to wait until the full game, which has a maximum level cap of 300.
The full release of Relayer will be available worldwide for PlayStation 4 and 5 on March 24. The game will have Japanese and English dual audio and subtitle options. It will also have Korean and Traditional Chinese subtitles at launch, with French, Italian, German, and Spanish subtitles added with a later patch.
However, Clouded Leopard Entertainment as the international publisher for Relayer has yet to confirm whether countries outside Japan will also get a pre-release demo or not.
