Death end re;Quest

Compile Heart has released a new, three-minute trailer for Death end re;Quest.

The official website was also updated with two new story bits:

■ Story

◆ Tips

White Rabbit

Virtual reality goggles created to play games that use the Alice Code engine. Since the player’s consciousness is projected into the game world via brain waves sent through the White Rabbit, a monitor is not required.

The Alice Code game engine associates the idea of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from the sensation when consciousness is transferred, and the virtual reality goggles gets its name from the rabbit guide who brings Alice to Wonderland.

Ending Logout

While “World’s Odyssey” is an MMORPG, it does have an “ending.” When the last boss known as the “Divine Beast” is defeated, the game will end, but when this ending occurs, the player will automatically logout and return to the real world. This was implemented just before the development of “World’s Odyssey” was ceased, and only a few people know about the specification.

As the sole method for Shina and company to return to the real world in the main story, they must work to clear the bug-eroded world of “World’s Odyssey.”

Death end re;Quest will launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan on March 1, 2018 for 7,776 yen at retail and 6,912 yen via download.
