Anime News

New update for the Western release of the Re:ZERO – Prophecy of the Throne game! Developer Spike Chunsoft revealed the first trailer for the game’s Western release in the recently-held New Game+ Expo online event. The trailer reveals a new character, Melty. She is the sixth candidate for the Royal Selection. Check out the trailer here!

Officially titled Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World – : the Prophecy of the Throne (Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu – Itsuwari no Ōsen Kōho), the game is scheduled to be released this winter 2020. The game is set to be released for the Play Station 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

Spike Chunsoft describes the game as such:

“One month after Subaru’s new life in another world began, an emissary sent by the royal castle suddenly appears with news that the royal selection has been postponed, but offers no reason as to why. The postponement of this grand event that decides the next ruler of the Kingdom of Lugunica stirs Subaru and his friends into action. They return to the royal capital only to find that a sixth candidate has claimed their stake for the throne. But the Dragon Stone prophesizes that only five candidates would be chosen. With one candidate being an imposter, suspicions are immediately cast toward one woman in particular: Emilia. What answers lie beyond the mysterious web of assassinations, betrayal, and conspiracies…?”

The game developer has also announced the collector’s edition bundle for the game. The Day One Edition will include exclusive pins of Emilia, Subaru, Rem, and a new character. There is also a steelbook case, soundtrack CD, and an art book with concept sketches and commentary. Check out the sweet bundle below!

A separate smartphone game entitled Re:ZERO – Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu – Lost in Memories will also be released this summer 2020.

Re:ZERO’s second season was initially slated for an April premiere but has since been moved to July to the COVID-19. An edited first season—dubbed Re:ZERO -Starting Life in a New World – Director’s Cut— premiered on January 1. Edits to the 25-episode season 1 include additional footage and a reworking of the episodes to make it fit into a one-hour timeslot.

Re:ZERO Starting Life in A New World is a light novel series written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shinichirou Otsuka. The story revolves around hikikomori (i.e., social recluse) Subaru Natsuki, who suddenly finds himself transported into another world during a trip to the nearest convenience store. Once there, he realizes that he gets “resurrected” each time he dies. An anime adaptation of the series by White Fox aired from April to September 2016, which eventually became hugely popular to fans because of its interesting characters and unique take on the isekai premise.
