A new image was released for the game, Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World- The Prophecy of the Throne. If you’ve seen the anime (and you should), it’s a nice image of Subaru, Rem, and Emilia walking through town, and you can see it at the top. It was created specifically for the game by the original character designer, Shinichirou Otsuka, so it is brand new. To me, it looks like what you might see if you were a character in the world.
Since we cannot join the Re:ZERO world (which is probably for the best), we at least have the game with a title so long I’m not going to retype it yet. With an original story set in the timeline of the first season of the anime, Subaru has been living his best isekai for about a month when he and Emilia rush to the capital to learn why the royal selection process has been postponed. Despite the Dragon Stone saying there would only be five candidates, a mysterious sixth has appeared. Everyone thinks Emilia is the counterfeit candidate, and you’ll unravel a web of mysteries over the game. The original series author, Tappei Nagatsuki, supervised the new story, so it should be in good hands.
If you’re already sold on another adventure with Mr. Live, Die, and Repeat, there are two special editions for pre-order. The Day One Edition ($59.99) includes the game and a set of four pins in a decorated display box. The Collector’s Edition ($89.99) includes the game, the pins, a full-color art book, a SteelBook Case, and the official soundtrack with everything housed in a fancy box. You can pre-order from Amazon, Best Buy, or GameStop.
For now, we only have a winter release date, but we might hear an official release date at the Tokyo Game Show later this month.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
