■ About DEEMO

DEEMO: Reborn

Never left without—-.

Saying goodbye.

Once upon a time, a little girl falls from the sky into an unknown world.

She meets a being named Deemo, who plays the piano with a mysterious power.

Bewildered, the little girl is welcomed into the castle by Deemo and decides to stay.

One day, the little girl comes across a little sapling.

The sapling grows whenever Deemo plays the piano.

Can they grow the tree to the level that allows the little girl to reach the window in the sky and return home?

The little girl will bring back sheet music she finds on her explorations for Deemo to play on the piano to let the tree grow.

■ Music and Exploration

A new way to experience the world of DEEMO with all-new elements and a deeper story!

DEEMO: Reborn consists of two modes; exploring the castle with the little girl, and rhythm games as you play the pieces as Deemo.

Exploring the castle will reveal countless puzzles and switches. Solving these will reward you with new sheet music, and playing those in turn will widen your options for Exploring.

The music part, one of the best things about DEEMO, offers new play styles in DEEMO: Reborn, including difficult songs to learn and play. There are more than 60 songs, including new songs and various participating artists such as the Nobuo Uematsu-led band Earthbound Papas, metal band Jigoku Quartet guitarist Shinichi Kobayashi, and classical music group Mili. There are plans to add even more songs via downloadable content.
