Re:ZERO - Starting Life in Another World is an intensely engaging series that has managed to win the loyalty of millions of Japanese anime and manga fans. Though only nearing the end of the first seasons' episodes, Re:ZERO video game mania is already in the pipeline. While the makers of the anime and the developers of the game have been extremely secretive about the development, details are slowly starting to emerge about the game that is bound to excite many who have strongly desired an anime that extends beyond the blood and gore, and explores the multiple facets of human emotions, interspersed with epic battles.

Games based on Japanese manga or anime have always enjoyed a loyal and substantial fan following. Even those games that did not do well from a commercial perspective have been discussed at length on online forums. However, very few games will offer the level of emotional depth that is so masterfully intertwined with goals that need to be completed as the storyline progresses.

According to Gematsu, the Re:ZERO game is based on the concept of the visual novel. However, the developers, 5pb, have confirmed the game will have its own storyline, which is based on an anime called Another Episode with the Candidates for Next Ruler. Nonetheless, the game's storyline will have the core aspect of the anime, which involves the protagonist's near certain and repetitive death (if he doesn't make the right choice or isn't able to complete the goals that lie in his path), untouched.

Besides the main protagonist, the Re:ZERO game has all the cute females the anime features. The heroines who partake in the "Beauty Queen Election" include Emilia, Ram, Rem, Beatrice, Felt, Priscilla, Anastasia, and Crusch.
