DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation Game Dated for the West

Romantic visual novel hits NA on June 18 and Europe on June 21


Last week we got a look at the first character trailer for DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation, a romantic visual novel that's coming to PS4 and Steam in the west. At the time it was just set for a June release window, but that timing has now been narrowed down to June 18 in North America and June 21 in Europe. 


As previously reported, the PS4 version will have two modified CGs. All original CGs will be fully intact in the Steam version, which also features Traditional Chinese subtitle options.




Based on the popular light novel series from Fujimi Fantasia Bunko, which inspired three anime adaptations, DATE A LIVE, DATE A LIVE II, DATE A LIVE III, and the anime movie Gekijoban DATE A LIVE: Mayuri Judgement, 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, encounters a Spirit named Tohka Yatogami who has lost all hope in humanity. Shido is later told by his younger sister, Kotori, that he alone possesses the ability to seal the power of a Spirit.

In order to protect the world and to save the Spirits, Shido is determined to do whatever he can. No matter the obstacle, he is ready to face the Spirits head-on!
