Our World is Ended

Publisher PQube has delayed the PlayStation 4 and Switch versions of visual novel Our World is Ended from its previously announced March release to April 18 in North America and Europe.

In Europe, the April 18 release date includes both the physical and digital editions. In North America, the release date is only for the digital editions. The physical editions will launch on May 7.

Digital pre-orders will begin on March 4 on the European PlayStation Store and March 19 on the Nintendo eShop. A pre-order start date for the North American PlayStation Store was not announced.

As previously announced, pre-orders for the physical edition will include a 100-page art book and key chain of the protagonist Owari Sekai’s mascot character.

In Japan, Judgement 7: Our World is Ended, an enhanced port of the November 2017-released PS Vita game Our World is Ended, launched for PlayStation 4 and Switch today. The western release, Our World is Ended, is a straight port of the original PS Vita version.

Our World is Ended is also planned for release on PC via Steam in 2019, but a specific release date has yet to be announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via PQube and the game’s official website:

Story

Our World is Ended follows Judgement 7, a team of young developers working on a brand new game engine called the W.O.R.L.D program. When wearing an Augmented Reality headset, this revolutionary program changes the landscape in real time. When Reiji, the game part-time director, tries the program in the streets of Asakusa, he catches a glimpse of an unsettling cityscape. Could this be a glitch or is there more to it than meets the eye?

His doubts are soon to be confirmed as the members of Judgement 7 will find themselves trapped between fiction and the real world. Characters and creatures from their previous games have breached into the world and now risk of becoming reality. The city is on the verge of being overwritten. Judgement 7’s battle to bring the world back is about to begin!
