NIS America is excited to announce the newest title in its 2020 lineup, Mad Rat Dead, will release on October 30 in North America and Europe, and November 6 in Oceania for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Jump, dash, and smash to the rhythm in this music-based action platformer!

Directed by Yu Mizokami (Yomawari: Night Alone and Yomawari: Midnight Shadows), this game features the titular Mad Rat, who has been granted one more chance at life to fulfill his dream. The player must keep his heart pumping in time with the music and clear stages within a time limit…lest Mad Rat’s own time on Earth runs out! Funky visuals and addictive soundtracks, along with the ability to rewind, provide a unique experience unlike any other.

A rat’s dream has been left unfulfilled before his death…that is, until he gets a second chance at life! Granted the opportunity to redo his last day on Earth, the player must utilize Mad Rat’s newfound power to pump his heart in time with the music, lest his own time runs out. Mad Rat Dead combines platformer action and rhythm mechanics to have players keep their eyes and ears peeled at all times!
