Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation Comes to the West Summer 2019!
Your choices will affect your destiny! We are excited to announce that the adventure/visual novel game Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation will be arriving for the PlayStation 4 (physical/digital) and Steam in Summer 2019!
Two CG scenes were modified for the PS4 release, while the Steam version will remain unedited. Please note that the gameplay for both games has not changed from the Japanese version.
Based off of a popular light novel series from Fujimi Fantasia Bunko, which inspired three anime adaptations, Date A Live, Date A Live II, Date A Live III, and the anime movie Gekijoban Date A Live: Mayuri Judgement, the story of Date A Live begins thirty years after a series of large disasters, known as Spacequakes, that were caused by the appearance of mysterious entities known as Spirits.
Shido Itsuka, an average high school student, encounters a Spirit who despairs of humanity. Shido is later told by his younger sister, Kotori, that he alone possesses the ability to seal the power of a Spirit.
In order to protect the world, and to save the Spirits, Shido is determined to do whatever he can. No matter the obstacle, he is ready to face the Spirits head-on!
A brand new character named Rio appears, who calls Shido “Papa” and is searching for the “most important thing.”
After having escaped nearly being trapped in a virtual reality, Shido is afflicted by a strange feeling.
A disturbance in the world in which he lives. Someone is out there… He cannot shake the helpless, uncomfortable feeling.
This strange feeling persists… A new paradise. A girl who has the same last name as Rinne──Rio Sonogami. The girl, along with Marina… for the sake of everyone’s happiness, they wander in search of “the most important thing.”
