One of Compile Heart's most recent teases resulted in the reveal of Death end re;Quest, a new PlayStation 4 RPG that falls under the company's Galapagos RPG label. Falling in with the buggy theme of the fake retro RPG they used to tease it, Death end has players clearing up a game world that's bugging out from both in-game and real world perspectives.
"Bugs with will," "NPCs with human hearts," and "characters that should not exist" are among the mysteries presented in the game, which features protagonist Shin Mizunashi in the lead. She leaps into action after receiving a message from a woman named Shiina Ninomiya, who has been trapped in the World's Odyssey VRMMO despite it having ceased development.
A release date has yet to be announced, but the Famitsu preview shared info on some of the key staff, including producer Norihisa Kochiwa (Neptunia series), director Youhei Satou, writer Makoto Kedouin (Corpse Party), character designer Kei Nanameda (Trillion: God of Destruction), guest character designer Huke (Black Rock Shooter), summon beast designer Junya Ishigaki (Macross F, Xenogears) and contributing monster designs featuring the likes of Gundam's Yuji Kaida and Silent Mobius' Kia Asamiya.
