While one might assume it is a western localization of the 5pb.-developed visual novel Re:Zero -Starting Life from Zero- Kiss or Death, which launched for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan in March 2017, the premise of that game’s story is a bit different.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Amazon U.K. listings:
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 assassination, betrayal, and conspiracies…?
