Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation

Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation will launch physically and digitally for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam in North America and Europe in June, publisher Idea Factory International announced.

First released for PlayStation 4 in Japan in October 2017, Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation is a collection that includes three visual novels: Date A Live: Rinne Utopia, Date A Live: Arusu Install, and Date A Live Twin Edition: Rio Reincarnation. The former two were released for PlayStation 3 in Japan, while the latter was released for PS Vita. It also includes the drama CDs (featuring 17 songs) and special books (with thumbnail mode page skip and zoom features) originally included as bonuses for each game, which are accessible in-game.

The PlayStation 4 version will have two modified CGs. The PC version will contain all original CGs. Gameplay for both releases will be the same as the original Japanese version. The PC version will also include Traditional Chinese subtitles.

Here is an overview of the game, via Idea Factory International:

Story

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.”
