Re:Zero - Starting Life In Another World - The Prophecy of the Throne was revealed during the inaugural New Game Plus Expo stream today. It's a followup to the original Re:Zero - Starting Life In Another World.

A month after Subaru's "life in another world" began, an emissary informs our hero that the royal selection has been postponed, but the reason is unclear. Subaru and his friends return to the royal capital to find that a sixth candidate has claimed their stake for the throne, despite the Dragon Stone prophesying that only five candidates would be chosen. You'll have to navigate a complex web of assassinations, conspiracies, and secrets to discover the truth behind this unexpected development.

The game's official website promises an entirely new storyline supervised by series author Tappei Nagatsuki. You'll also find a set of brand new characters designed by original Re:Zero artist Shinichirou Otsuka, but don't worry; your favorite characters will be making a reappearance in the game, too. This one will be a "tactical adventure game", meaning you'll need to stay one step ahead of your enemies and battle to discover the truth.

You'll be able to play Re:Zero - Starting Life In Another World - The Prophecy of the Throne when it launches for PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 this winter. There's also a collector's edition which comes complete with extras like exclusive character pins and a full-color art book. Stay tuned for more info about this game as we get it.
