Realm Souls IV: Reawakening (レルムソウルズIV:リアウェイクニング) is an action role-playing video game developed by Burst Arts and published by Multisoft for the Nintendo Wii U. The game is the sixth installment in the series and was released in Japan on August 20, 2014. It was released outside Japan on September 14, 2014 in Europe, September 24, 2014 in Australasia and October 1, 2014 in North America. Taking place after the events of Realm Souls III, the game focuses on Rook, Len, and Sue's Sign of Worth trial in which they have to reawaken the heroes of the past and gather the new Pure Souls in preparation for the return of Master Zonulos.


The game retains its RPG/hack-and-slash/shooter characteristics within its gameplay throughout the series. The player can choose from either the campaigns of Rook, Len, and Sue, whose stories will intertwine at some points of the game. The game reuses the Skill Pack system from Origins, in which players can customize a deck filled with various skills, magic, and items that can be quickly selected. There are also several new elements added to the gameplay. Wavement allows players to move quickly about by performing actions such as kicking off walls, sliding on rails and running across poles.

Upon visiting a new world for the first time, each character must go through an Impact Phase section, in which characters freefall down a tube and must clear a certain objective, such as collecting a certain number of orbs, defeating a certain number of enemies before a time limit, performing a certain number of tricks, or defeating a boss character. In this mode, the player can attack opponents, slow down their fall, or avoid attacks. They can also pick up magic spells which give them a limited supply of magical attacks to use against enemies.


Fearing that the defeat of Garon and Zorgan could signify the return of Zonulos, the Star Spirits gather Rook, Len, and Sue and put them through a Sign of Worth trial to bestow them with the power necessary to rescue the heroes that have suffered their fate in the past and counter Zonulos. For the exam, they are sent to worlds that have been recently conquered by the Anti-Souls. There, they must search for eight new Pure Souls in order to fully restore them to the realm of light. As the three heroes were sent off to begin their trial, four people have followed them into their journey, likely to warn them of what's to come.
