■ Game Flow

Death end re;Quest 2

Converse with the people of the beautiful city of Liz Shoala, where the story is set, during the day, but at night, a curse corrodes the city, its appearance changes, and monsters roam about.

As you go between the worlds of night and day, with a focus on the Women’s Dormitory, the truth of the story will gradually come to light.

■ Battle

Turn-Based Battles

This game uses a turn-based command battle system. There will be three members in battle, and the order of turns is determined by the speed of each character. At the start of each character’s turn, they are able to move about freely on the field, so you can choose to perform combos with your character, or attack from outside the enemy’s range to keep units safe.

Triact System

The Triact system allows players to take three actions in one turn. Actions include the “Attack,” “Item,” or “Guard” under the “Skill” menu. Selecting multiple of the same skill compounds effects. For example, by chosing “Attack, Guard, Item”, you may attack, put up your guard, and use any item, allowing you to enjoy speedy battles full of strategy in a single turn.

Super Knockback System

The Knockback system that appeared in the first game, where you can send enemies flying to deal additional damage, has been upgraded to the Super Knockback system. By attacking with skills that possess this effect, you can send the enemy even further flying. By aiming your attack and attacking an enemy with a skill that activates a Super Knockback, you can send enemies flying into other enemies to deal damage to multiple enemies at once.

Glitch Mode

Glitch Mode is a strengthening system that grants the user cheat-level ability. Each time a party member touches a curse or is attacked, a curse will contaminate them. If contamination exceeds a certain threshold, characters will transform into “Glitch Mode.” In Death end re;Quest 2, Glitch Mode is even easier to activate, making battle even more exhilarating. When activated, the character’s appearance also changes.

Flash System

While characters can learn skills by leveling up, powerful sills can only be learned through “Flashes” during battle. Try out various actions to gradually learn powerful skills.

Cursed Grounds

On the grounds of the battle area may be bugs that can curse you. By stepping on one of these bugs, various potential effects can be triggered. Since there may be curses that benefit the player, you should make skillful use of these.
