Death end re;Quest takes the classic turn-based RPG and turns it on its head, allowing you to jump at will between the RPG action of the game world, and the investigative visual novel segments of the real world. In the game world, players brawl in engaging RPG battles! Blast enemies and chain your attacks with the Knockback system or switch game genres from RPG into fighting, shooting, slot, puzzle, and billiards – the choice is yours. Game development may seem all fun and games until the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur.

* Includes ALL DLC released for the original PlayStation®4 version on cartridge!

Key Features

  • Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction? - Choose between jumping into reality and in-game modes. Investigate the real world in the form of a visual novel to solve what lies underneath World Odyssey. Or dive into World's Odyssey, where Shina can explore its dungeons and battle its enemies. Every choice made in both real and in-game modes can affect who will live to see another day or who will unearth the dark truths of World’s Odyssey.
  • Turn-Based RPGs Flipped Upside Down - In this turn-based battle system, players can freely roam and duke it out with glitched-out monsters. Smack them into walls and to your party members to activate “Knockback” combos. And when certain conditions are met, players can change the game’s genre from fighting, shooting, slot, puzzle, and billiards! Players can also utilize “Field Bugs” scattered throughout the battlefield to increase a character’s Corruption – a key feature to transform characters into Glitch Mode!  
  • You’re Glitchin’ Out - Transform your party into an unstoppable force with Glitch Mode! In Glitch Mode, your base stats are increased and special attacks can now be activated! But be wary, as there are downsides with too much power. Players will also need to activate character-specific dungeon skills or “Bug Skills” to access hard-to-reach areas and hidden treasures!
  • Explore the First Installment in this Glitched-Out World - The World’s Odyssey is now ready to be explored on-the-go for the Nintendo Switch! Newcomers and veterans of the series can traverse through the first installment of this hyper-realistic game world with unique, glitched out environments.

    Good Game but System Issues

    Posted by Tiffany Jones on 1st Jun 2021

    It's a wonderful game. The gameplay is great and the story is amazing. The only issue is the console. I had no issues with the PS4 version of the game, but sadly the Switch version is very slow and doesn't like to load. I've been stuck on the same part for days now. I've formatted and even replayed the game. Same part keeps getting stuck on "now loading" screen.

    Chapter 3, boss fight won't load.

    Posted by Justin Tuthill on 1st Jun 2021

    It arrived on my birthday! Due to the acceptable delay I received 3 tradings cards.

    I am not too deep into the game yet but the story and gameplay are good, graphics are fresh.
    having a physical card is for kings.

    Thank you!

    DerQ on Switch

    Posted by Unknown on 19th May 2021

    It's the same game as the PS4 version, for better or worse, with downgraded graphics. This works somewhat in the game's favor however, due to the game within a game is something that was scrapped early in development and now looks kinda bad without looking awful.
    However there is one issue, and that is that the backgrounds on the visual novel portions of the game have the colors pretty heavily faded compared to their PS4 versions. This has been an issue with Compile Heart's recent Switch releases, my import of Mary Skelter Finale has the same issue for example, and I hope IFI will look into fixing that for these games soon.

    Death End Re;Quest

    Amazing game! Mixes horror and jrpg elements nicely. Story is very intriguing. And the gameplay while not the greatest, it does contain some very innovative mechanics. Such as switching genres with a skill you learn later on, it's pretty cool to use. Looking forward to Death End Re;Quest 3. Shina is best girl!
