Find a description from Idea Factory and a screenshot set below.
Players must jump back from the World's Odyssey (W.O.D.) and into the real world to unfold the mysteries of Enigma Games and W.O.D. Meet a colorful cast in the Real World, through the lens of a visual novel, as they assist Arata in helping his dear friend, Shina, escape the terrifying World's Odyssey.
Last, but not least, the official website has updated character information and introduces Arata's allies: Sumika Tokiwa, Natsuo Munakata, Rin Asukaze, and Lydia Nolan.
- Sumika Tokiwa - A coworker of Arata and Shina's who works as a programmer on a project separate from World's Odyssey. As soon as she discovers that Shina, whom she considered to be a sister, was stuck inside of W.O.D., she teams up with Arata to extract her.
- Natsuo Munakata - A former employee of Aggle, Inc. who left to begin his own business. While at Aggle, he worked as an account manager, overseeing Enigma Games' licensing and development with the Alice Engine.
- Rin Asukaze - Head secretary to the CEO of Enigma Games. Whenever Arata has trouble, she often serves as a guide to illuminate the path ahead of him.
- Lydia Nolan - A foreigner who works as a character designer for Enigma Games. She prides herself on being an otaku, flaunting her decked-out itabag and collection of figurines at her desk.
Death end re;Quest is set to release on February 19 in North America and February 22 in Europe for PlayStation 4. You can check out the previously released Dungeon Navigation screenshots, Battle System Pt. 1 Trailer, or Battle System Pt. 2 Trailer.
