Game gets physical, digital PS4 versions; PC via Steam version

Idea Factory International began streaming the opening video for Compile Heart's Date A Live Rio Reincarnation game on Tuesday. Idea Factory International also revealed that its Western release for the game is slated for June in North America and Europe for the PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.

As previously announced, the PS4 release in the West will be available in both physical and digital releases, and will have two modified CG scenes. The Steam version will have no edited scenes.

Idea Factory International describes the game:

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.”

The Date A Live Rio Reincarnation HD game shipped on PS4 in October 2017 in Japan. The game collection includes ports of the Date A Live: Rinne Utopia and Date A Live: Arusa Install PlayStation 3 games, as well as the Date A Live Twin Edition: Rio Reincarnation PlayStation Vita game. Idea Factory International's Western release will also include all three games.

Compile Heart is developing a new game in the series titled Date A Live Ren Dystopia, which is slated for release for PS4 in Japan this summer.
