Re:Zero - The Prophecy of the Throne

Spike Chunsoft has officially announced Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World: The Prophecy of the Throne, a tactical adventure game due out for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam this winter. In Japan, it is titled Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World: Royal Selection Candidate.

While Spike Chunsoft has yet to officially announce the game’s western title and release, the game’s existence first leaked earlier this week via listings on Amazon U.K.

Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World: The Prophecy of the Throne features an original story supervised by Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World original author Tappei Nagatsuki. In it, a sixth candidate for the Royal Selection that should not exist appears, immediately casting suspicion on Emilia as being an imposter.

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…?
