Spike Chunsoft today (10th June) confirms that its upcoming video game “Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World: The Prophecy of the Throne” is heading to the West this winter for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
Physical copies of the game’s Day One Edition comes with four exclusive pins featuring Emilia, Subaru, Rem, and a new character. The Collector’s Edition will include the pins, a SteelBook case, a soundtrack CD, and an art book with concept art, sketches, and commentary.
The game will follow the “Royal Selection” storyline of the TV anime’s first season and feature original “what if” story supervised by the novel’s writer Tappei Nagatsuki (長月達平). Original novel illustrator Shinichirou Otsuka (大塚 真一郎) is handling the game’s character illustrations.
The new title will be a tactical adventure game, while players can also utilize Subaru’s ability of “Return by Death,” which enables him to reverse time by dying.
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.

With one candidate being an imposter, suspicions are immediately cast toward One woman in particular: Emilia. What answers lie beyond the mysterious web of assassination, betrayal, and conspiracies…?
