Death end re;Quest 2 announced for Nintendo Switch

In December last year we received confirmation of a new indie title for Nintendo Switch. It was Death end re;Quest. The title has been available since December 24th on the Japanese eShop and in the West since April 27th.

Well, we have good news for its fans: Compile Heart has announced Death end re;Quest 2 for Nintendo Switch and it will be released later this year in Japan.

Here’s the premise and trailer:

Mai Toyama seeks an escape from her traumatic past. She enrolls at Wordsworth, a women’s residence located in the small, mountainous town known as Le Choara, where her sister, Sanae, is rumoured to have been last seen. Hopeful, Mai tries to find her relative, but soon encounters terrifying inhabitants who stalk the town after dark. At night, the streets of Le Choara are filled with Shadow Matter, a hideous group of menacing creatures. Around every cobblestone corner, Mai discovers that her hope of finding her sister lies beneath the long-buried secrets that haunt Le Choara.

Key features:

The enemy life destruction system is an additional feature that allows characters to stack damage on top of enemy health for additional experience. Try to deal as much damage as possible to all monsters for greater rewards.
Beware the Berserker – During dungeon exploration and battle, a faceless black figure will appear out of nowhere. The figure will also display an attack area once it appears. Mai and her team should stay away from the Berserker’s attack area, as it will instantly kill anyone with a single hit. Flee from the Berserker in the dungeon or defeat all the monsters on the battlefield to escape.
Day and Night – Mai will have to explore the town of Le Choara during the day and talk to the townspeople to find clues as to where her sister is. At night, Mai will fight against dark stylised creatures in a turn-based RPG. Experience the story through the lens of a visual novel during the day and fight horrific creatures at night.
Don’t call it a hit – The hit system is back in Death end re;Quest 2, but this time, Mai and her team can hit Shadow Matter even harder! Combine your attacks by throwing monsters at other party members.
