Re:ZERO - Starting Life in Another World: The Prophecy of the Throne Lands English ReleaseRe:ZERO fans, good news: the tactical adventure game The Prophecy of the Throne is getting an English-language release.

The game is headed to Switch, Steam and PlayStation 4 this winter via Spike Chunsoft.

It’s set to be released in two varieties: a “Day One” edition and a Collector’s Edition. The former includes four pins in a display box, while the latter includes the pins plus a full-steel art book, a display case, the soundtrack and an “outerbox.” That’s a lot of boxes.

The game will be released in Japan around the same time.

Here’s how Spike Chunsoft describes The Prophecy of the Throne:

One month after Subaru’s new life in another world began, an emissary sent by the royal castle suddenly appears with news that the royal selection has been postponed, but offers no reason as to why. The postponement of this grand event that decides the next ruler of the Kingdom of Lugunica stirs Subaru and his friends into action. They return to the royal capital only to find that a sixth candidate has claimed their stake for the throne. But the Dragon Stone prophesizes that only five candidates would be chosen. With one candidate being an imposter, suspicions are immediately cast toward one woman in particular: Emilia. What answers lie beyond the mysterious web of assassinations, betrayal, and conspiracies…?
