There’s some minor differences between the limited editions for PlayStation 4 and Steam: the former also comes with a reversible cover whereas the latter comes with a digital copy of the game (the Steam download code will be sent to the customer via email). The Limited Edition for Steam also includes the aforementioned Steam Deluxe Pack (download code also sent via email).

“Bug Fixer” by musical group Gesshoku Kaigi serves as the opening theme which is featured in the game’s opening sequence. The group also composed the music for the first Death end re;Quest.

The latest preview trailer (embedded below) features gameplay footage during battle encounters between the game’s main characters and various enemies.
