Kadokawa's Famitsu.com website revealed story details and screenshots for 5pb. Games' Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu -Death or Kiss (Re: Life in a different world from zero -Death or Kiss-) adventure game on Tuesday.
The game will have an original story, taking place before the royal election at an event called the "Beauty Queen Election." It involves the royal election candidates in a beauty contest, where the winner will receive Metia, a treasure that is said to bring fortune. By circumstance, Subaru happens to kiss the prize, which curses him to die unless he receives a "heartfelt kiss" that will break it. Subaru interferes with the tournament to get closer to the candidates in an attempt to prevent his death.
The game will have eight different endings involving Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Felt, Priscilla, Anastasia, and Crusch.
The game will ship on March 23 in Japan with a standard edition for 7,500 yen (about US$73), limited edition for 10,500 yen (about US$102), and download edition for 7,000 yen (about US$68).
Nagatsuki launched the story in the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2012, and Kadokawa published the eighth novel in the series on March 25.
