Spike Chunsoft and Chime Corporation have announced that Re:ZERO Starting Life in Another World: The Prophecy of the Throne will release on Nintendo Switch.
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?”
The game’s Day One Edition will come with four exclusive, limited-run original pins in a display box, which feature Emilia, Subaru, Rem and Melty.
Whereas the Collector’s Edition will also have these original pins, but also includes a SteelBook collector’s display case, the official soundtrack, a full-colour art book with concept art, sketches and commentary with a special foreword from the creators and an outerbox.
Re:ZERO Starting Life in Another World: The Prophecy of the Throne will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Winter 2020.
