Game releases on July 23 in N. America, Steam; on July 26 in Europe

Idea Factory International announced on Wednesday it has delayed the North American release date of the PlayStation 4 version of Compile Heart's Date A Live Rio Reincarnation game to July 23. The company has also delayed the European release to July 26. The game was previously slated to ship on June 18 and June 21 in North America and Europe respectively.

Idea Factory International also revealed that the game will launch on PC via Steam on July 23. (That version was previously announced for a June release.)

The PS4 version 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.
