Game System

A tactical adventure utilizing Subaru's "Return by Death" ability, a key element much like in the original works.

Adventure Part

Progress through the story mainly through conversations. The smooth character animations and fully voiced dialogue brings the story to life.

Movement Part

Take control of Subaru to speak with characters, check out points on the map, and gather items and information. Obtaining useful items and intel is key to completing missions successfully.


Devise plans with allies to decide how to proceed through upcoming missions. Subaru can propose opinions based on any items and information that have been gathered to affect the actions of his allies.


Take action to resolve conflicts standing in the way of Subaru and his friends. Players can only control Subaru, and his allies move independently based on the decisions made during Briefings.
