DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation to Release in June on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC

Publisher Idea Factory International have announced that DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation, which is a collection of visual novel games that later inspired three DATE A LIVE anime series, will be available during June 2019 for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.

A specific release date has yet to be announced but DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation, which is a High Definition re-release of previously released ‘Japanese only’ releases Date A Live: Rinne Utopia, Date A Live: Arusu Install, and Date A Live Twin Edition: Rio Reincarnation, will be released during June with a Collector’s Edition variation confirmed for the PlayStation 4 version.

As previously communication the PlayStation 4 version will contain two modified CGs, most likely in order to comply with regulations imposed for the platform, while the Windows PC (Steam) version will have those CG scenes unaltered.

Story: A brand new character named Rio appears, who calls Shido “Papa” and is searching for the “most important thing.”After having escaped nearly being trapped in a virtual reality, Shido is afflicted by a strange feeling.

A disturbance in the world in which he lives. Someone is out there… He cannot shake the helpless, uncomfortable feeling. This strange feeling persists… A new paradise. A girl who has the same last name as Rinne──Rio Sonogami. The girl, along with Marina… for the sake of everyone’s happiness, they wander in search of “the most important thing.”

Key Features:

  • Find Your Route to Love – The choices you make with each girl can affect your overall destiny. Clear all of your date’s conditions to reveal the heroine’s true ending!
  • Motion Portrait Animation Comes To Life – All standing portraits that players interact with will breathe, blink, and react to your conversations! The heroines feel more realistic than ever!
  • There’s More Where That Came From – Two previous entries in the Date A Live series that were only available on the PlayStation 3, Rinne Utopia and Arusu Install, will be included in Rio Reincarnation!
