Spike Chunsoft, the video game development company, has announced the development of a new game based on the Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World franchise. The title of the game is Re:Zero – False King Candidate.
The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and is scheduled for release in winter 2020.
Author Tappei Nagatsuki was also involved in the storyline of the game. Shinichirou Otsuka has developed the illustrations for the characters.
The plot will concentrate on the original storyline of the first season of the anime but with new twists. It is a “tactical adventure” game, and there will be other options as well to explore the plot.
