Famitsu has come out with new information and screenshots for 5pb’s newly announced visual novel, Re:ZERO –Starting Life in Another World- DEATH OR KISS.
The new details cover what was revealed from the early look at the October issue of Megumi Magazine, and then some.
Felt is a new edition to the eight endings planned for the title. That goes alongside endings for Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Crusch, Priscilla, and Anastasia.
The game’s original story is as follows: The “Beauty Queen Election” is happening, and aspects like “glamour” and elegance” will decide the victor. Candidates will receive a “treasure said to bring upon good luck” and a huge boost in the Ruler Election if they win.
Subaru was helping with tournament preparations when he accidently kissed the treasure. The prize turns out to be cursed and from it he hears, “Sacrifice thy blood. And as compensation, bestow the divine protection of a kiss from the opposite sex. Should you tell others of this curse, unbearable misfortune will fall upon you.”
He seeks out Beatrice and asks for help with this curse that has befallen him. Subaru learns that the only way to break the curse is to receive a “heartfelt kiss”, so now he has to become closer with the contestants if he wants to be set free and prevent the curse from reaching any of the others.
Your choices will effect whether Subaru lives or dies, and in order to stop the curse from spreading, Subaru needs to obtain the treasure himself. He needs to lead his chosen candidate to victory by raising their popularity, thereby getting more votes. By doing this, Subaru’s relationship with his supported heroine will also grow deeper.
Here are some screenshots and character art:
