SEGA and NieR series creator Yoko Taro have announced 404 GAME RE:SET, a brand-new mobile RPG coming soon to Android and iOS.
In 404 GAME RE:SET, prolific SEGA franchises have been warped into powerful girls (character designs by Yuugen) that fight against SEGA itself. These SEGA girls include Out Run, After Burner, Virtua Fighter, and Virtua Cop. Yoko Taro serves as creative director, bringing the stories of these girls to the forefront of the new title.
404 GAME RE:SET launches in 2023 in Japan, and pre-registration is available now in the App Store and Google Play Store. Players who pre-register may earn special bonuses and rewards on launch day. A worldwide release was not announced.
Here’s an overview of the upcoming mobile RPG, translated by Gematsu:
Video games turned everything upside down.
This is a world by SEGA, for SEGA.
From infrastructure to entertainment, SEGA reigns supreme in all areas. The player, who lives in this world, one day encounters a mysterious being called “X.”
“The world you live in is not as it should be.”
The player, who learned that this world has been warped by SEGA, must throw themselves into a battle with SEGA in order restore the world to its true form.
