Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation
PlayStation 4™ – US & EU
Last time, Idea Factory International revealed the Character Pt. 3 and System trailer of Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation. Since we only have a few days left for the grand release of the Western localization of this game, Idea Factory International has released several screenshots introducing the characters Shido Itsuka and Rio Sonogami.
Here’s the overview of the characters and the screenshots below via Gematsu.
A second-year student living in Tengu City.
Recently, he discovered he has the ability to seal away a Spirit’s power within himself. Ever since, he’s assisted his sister, Kotori, who works as the commander of Ratatoskr, to rescue multiple Spirits.
Because his parents are often away from the house on business, he takes care of all of the housework, including cooking, as the mainstay of the house.
A girl who appears in front of Shido within Eden.
She is friendly and honest, and her youthful appearance befits her age. She slightly resembles Ruler, the master of Eden, but there’s something different about her…
Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation is a collection of the series’ three visual novels including Date A Live: Rinne Utopia, Date A Live: Arusu Install, and Date A Live Twin Edition: Rio Reincarnation, which means there are 11 characters to date and over 150 dating events. Also, it is worth noting that it will still have the same gameplay from the original Japanese version.
More so, this upcoming collection will feature Japanese voice-overs and English subtitles for the PS4 version. While the PC version will get the same language features, it will receive an additional Traditional Chinese for the subtitle.
But that’s not all. The visual novel collection will also include in-game bonus extras such as drama CDs and special books (with thumbnail mode page skip and zoom features).
Furthermore, due to the recent changes in Sony’s policy, the sexual content of the PlayStation 4 version is confirmed to be modified, or in its generic term in this case, “censored.” On the other hand, the PC version will be completely uncensored.
The story of DATE A LIVE begins thirty years after a series of large disasters, known as Spacequakes, that were caused by the appearance of mysterious entities known as Spirits. Shido Itsuka, an average high school student, finds a Spirit who despairs of humanity.
Shido is later told by his younger sister, Kotori, that he alone owns the gift to seal the power of a Spirit. In order to defend the earth, and to save the Spirits, Shido is determined to do whatever he can at all cost. No matter what obstacle he may encounter, he is ready to face the Spirits head-on!
Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation is coming for PlayStation 4 on July 23 in North America and July 26 in Europe. If you have plans on picking this game, you can get it here at Playasia. Click the button below to secure your copies.
