Continuing with Idea Factory International’s recent announcements, the publisher plans to bring a trio of Date A Live visual novels to PS4 and PC in the west. Due out in summer of 2019, the Data A Live: Rio Reincarnation collection includes Date A Live: Rinne Utopia, Date A Live: Arusu Install, and Date A Live Twin Edition: Rio Reincarnation.
Rio Reincarnation will be released in North America and Europe physically and digitally. According to IFI’s announcement, there have been some slight changes to the PS4 version—including two modified CG scenes—but the Steam version remains unchanged and the gameplay for both has not been altered.
Story and features:
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.”
