So, anyone with a PS3 who's into dungeon crawlers probably knows about this game.
Labyrinth of Lost Souls
hit the PSN almost a year ago.
It's a damn miracle it got localized, to be honest. None of the other games in the 'Wizardry Renaissance' have come out here, and it doesn't look like the DS game will either.
Sadly, there's been no sign of any more of those games coming over to the US.
But I think we have a chance to show XSeed and Acquire we aren't satisfied with one go round.
We want the sequel too.
Town of Forsaken Spirits
looks to be better than its predecessor in every way. More expansive dungeons, a new setting, new job classes, and lots more to do.
It's also fully voice acted.
Now, we ain't Project Rainfall. I don't expect the same kind of turnout or even the same outpouring of support, especially not for a niche, hardcore dungeon crawler.
But this is a similar situation. The PS3 is damn lacking in (good) exclusive RPGs.
I think a game like this would serve us much better than the likes of the cookie cutter JRPGs we've been getting in the US lately.
There's been no word from XSeed as to whether or not we'll get the sequel.
So, here's the gameplan.
This isn't a kickstarter. I propose that, if you don't own Labyrinth of Lost Souls on the PSN, you go buy it.
If you do
own it, go buy the DLC; The Red Shadow of the Sister
($14.99 and $4.99 respectively.)
If you decide to buy both, even better. If the game picks up a massive spike of sales, someone at XSeed, Acquire, or maybe even SCEA will notice.
And that just might get us the sequel localized. It sure couldn't hurt.
Worse case scenario? You get to enjoy a solid dungeon crawling experience.
So I say there's nothing to lose.
If you decide to support the initiative in any way, please let us know, and spread the word by any means. Heck, buy that EXP Fruit(.99) if it comes to that.
Let's keep the Renaissance rolling.
