Death End Re;Quest 2 STEAM Release Moved Forward; Now Releases One Week Earlier

Those looking forward to playing Idea Factory’s JPRG sequel Death End Re;Quest 2 for Windows PC will be excited to learn that the release date for the game has been brought forward by one week, meaning it will now be released globally on the 18th August 2020 via STEAM.

Previously the Windows PC release date was set as 25th August 2020, the same date as the North American PlayStation 4 release; but now it has been brought forward. The North American, and European, PlayStation 4 releases of Death End Re;Quest 2 still remain the 25th August 2020 and 28th August 2020 respectively. In addition to the STEAM release date change publisher Idea Factory International went on to reveal additional character profiles for characters that players will meet in the game.

Christina Serum:
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.

Paula Warren:
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.

Collette Sheldon:
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.

Elizabeth Paris:
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.

Mercy Lewis:
A tomboy who is good friends with Elizabeth, as the latter saved her from being bullied by Vina. Since then they’ve been inseparable.

Those interested in learning more about the art of Death End Re;Quest 2 will also be interested to learn that a translated interview with Lead Artist, Kei Nanameda, is also available on the Idea Factory blog.

Death End Re;Quest 2 will launch on the 18th September 2020 for Windows PC on STEAM as well as physically and digitally for the PlayStation 4 on 28th August 2020 (Europe) and 25th August 2020 (North America).
