posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of Compile Heart's Date a Live Twin Edition: Rio Reincarnation PS Vita game began streaming a promotional movie for the game on Wednesday. The video previews the story of both Date A Live: Rinne Utopia and Date A Live: Ars Install games. The video also reveals a new "After Story" scenario for the game that ties the stories of both games together, as well as the new Rio Sonogami character (voiced by Ayane Sakura).
Compile Heart will release the game on PS Vita on July 30. The game will come in standard, limited, and digital download editions. The standard edition will cost 7,344 yen (around US$61), while the limited edition will cost 9,504 yen (around US$79). The digital download edition will cost 6,480 yen (around US$54).
The promo video reveals that the limited edition will contain a "Rio Reunion" mini-art book containing rough illustrations of the characters and the statistics of the original characters, as well as drama CD with two stories. Those who pre-order the game will also receive a different drama CD.
Tachibana's original Date A Live light novel series centers on a boy named Shidō Itsuka who meets a spirit girl who has been rejected by a devastated world. The girl, whom Shidō names "Tohka," happens to have wiped out much of humanity 30 years ago, and now she is back. The only way to stop her is to date her.
The game allows players to interact with all of the heroines in a school setting. According to a teaser by the light novels' publisher Enterbrain, players can also go beyond the “date,” and even see their love interest as a pregnant wife in the future after marriage.
