    Does anyone with a better knowledge of that narrow type of game have any ideas? Wizardry is the only thing I, or the list of "first person" RPGs for PS3/360 on GameFAQs, can think of (maybe it's Diablo style and or a handheld game?) can think of, and that's a bit underwhelming.

    (Thankfully Idea Factory seems to have never made such a game.)

    These modern Japanese dungeon crawlers from small developers are all bad, they are always obnoxious, convoluted, or dumbed down in some way.

    THANKFULLY that's only barely been released and its a sequel to a game that is scheduled for (butchered) English release and won't be it for sure.

    Well, whatever it may be, I will likely be happy to see another dungeon crawler to come to PC.

    As for modern Jap crawlers, Generation Xth is pretty good. Too bad we won't see the rest of the series translated.

    That would be too good to be true.

    Apparently Elminage, which Ghostlight has published in PAL countries, is a dungeon crawler and a series. If it was a PS2/PSP game (not so much on the 3DS one though), it would certainly explain why they didn't mention releasing the original format as well (PSP is such a tiny market now, and apparently the only Sony staff capable of testing/liicensing new PS2 games is in South America).

    Good enough, though from what I've heard Elminage is a bit too simplistic. Any game by Experience would get me much more excited.

    Anyway, here's hoping it sells well so we can get more various dungeon crawlers translated in the future.

    There is no point in playing a convoluted, dumbed down, easy Wizardry lite.

    The original Elminage looked cool but was apparently pretty badly translated and had a couple bad bugs in it. Everything I read made it sound like a clunkier Wizardry 7. I don't know anything about this one but it looks cool and I'm totally down for a recent Wizardry-like dungeon crawler on the PC.

    I haven't played much Wizardry 7 but Elminage Original plays like the earlier Wizardry games.

    Is this one better than Elminage Original? I thought that game was ok, but uninspired.

    Why the fuck is this game so expensive. I know it says limited to 300 copies but why? I recall browsing the Ghostlight web store some time ago and I think they had that game for like 20 pounds.
    Though those might just be some eBay high as fuck buy it now price gougers, I doubt there's high enough demand for that game (outside obsessive PAL PSP collectors maybe) to warrant such a high price for such a resent game, where as with Xenoblade Chronicles the high prices are more understandable.
    Any one here got it?

    it's a psn game. you can buy it on psn for 15 bucks or so. those limited physical copies are just pure wankery.
