Spike Chunsoft and Numskull Games have announced that Re:ZERO Starting Life in Another World: The Prophecy of the Throne’s physical released in the United Kingdom has suffered a delay.
That has resulted from issues related to Brexit and the COVID-19 lockdown, with the game now set to hit retailers on 19th February 2021.
“The delay is caused by issues related to Brexit and COVID lockdowns,” the companies explained. “Spike Chunsoft, Inc. and Numskull Games are working hard to resolve all matters to ensure that Re:ZERO fans in [the] UK will not need to wait to receive the physical versions much longer.”
This tactical adventure delivers a new Re:ZERO storyline which has been supervised by series author Tappei Nagatsuki and has new characters designed by the original artist Shinichirou Otsuka.
The game’s story overview reads as follows:
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 assassinations, betrayal, and conspiracies?
Re:ZERO Starting Life in Another World: The Prophecy of the Throne will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in Europe on 5th February and at retail in the United Kingdom on 19th February 2021.
