Hey everyone. It’s Deven and I’m bringing you something interesting for all of the Date A Live fans out there. And it’s not about the anime.
For those that don’t know:
1. None of the Date A Live games have ever been released outside of Japan.
2. And Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation is a bundle of three games, Rinne Utopia, Arusu Install, and finally Rio Reincarnation.
This is pretty good for the English speaking fans of Date A Live who have been feeling really under-loved since the anime ended nearly 4 years ago. Sure we got Mayuri Judgement but that was back in August 2015 and even then we still haven’t gotten it officially. Add on the fact that you can’t buy the light novel yet in English, this is the breath of fresh air that the Date A Live English community needs.
And while the games are non-canon, the games are still in character and the games do get occasional nods in the light novels like during one scene that will probably appear in the third season, a character from the VN will appear. But don’t worry you don’t need to have played the game to get it. It’s just a little easter egg for those who have played the games to get.
That’s all I’ve got for now. It seems that next year we’ll get a lot of interesting Date A Live stuff. Maybe we’ll finally get the Light Novel in English?
So until the next post,
