Wizardy Imprisoned On PSN No Longer, Wizardy Twin Pack Coming To Stores

By Spencer . December 3, 2010 . 1:45pm

imageAcquire, developers of Way of the Samurai and the Badman series, also work with the Wizardry license. Their PlayStation 3 game, Wizardry: Dungeon of the Imprisoned Souls, won an award for being a top selling PlayStation Network title today.


Soon, Wizardry fans in Japan will be able to get the game without crawling through a labyrinth of PlayStation Network menus. Wizardry Twin Pack includes Wizardry: Dungeon of the Imprisoned Souls and the upcoming PSN release Wizardry: Town of the Imprisoned Spirits on one Blu-ray disc for 6,090 yen ($73).


The Wizardry Twin Pack ventures to retail on January 27, 2011.

  • Hhnnngghhh! I love Wizardry! Why must they taunt me so!?

    Excellent news. I plan on importing it, but it would be nice if someone would localize it for western audiences as well. Perhaps there are some licensing issues?

    • ECM

      Probably more like nobody bought the last Wizardry title on PS2, lo those many years ago.

      • Ereek

        Well, I was trying to be optimistic.

        • ECM

          I applaud your efforts and I hope you are correct, but…:(

            The thing is THAT Wizardry game looks 10,000 times better than this game.Hell, even the two DS Wizardry games look better. This is a really lazily developed game imo for the PS3. Lazier than even Last Rebellion.

            I think it’s this lazy approach that hasn’t won any U.S. publishers over. Way of the Samurai & Badman have at least some sort of appeal to them which is why they make it across.

          • I couldn’t care less what it looks like. It’s a ****ing Wizardry game.

            (but I get your point)

  • malek86

    Just wondering, how much do these two games cost on the PSN?

  • PrinceHeir

    is this a new game or just port?

    this game kinda reminded me of King’s Field.

  • HPN

    I loved Wizardry back in the day! Did Acquire buy the Wizardry IP from Sir-Tech? I hope Aksys, Atlus, UFO … someone picks this double pack up for a stateside release!

    Wizardry PS2 was fantastic. It’s a criminal shame that no one bought it. Localize this, give it another chance.

      *takes a moment to look at his copy of Wizardry*

        In the grand scheme of things. :P It’s not even rare, just niche. I see it dirt cheap quite often.

    Only Wizardry I’ve really gotten into was Wizardry 5 Heart of Maelstrom. My characters could walk through pretty much anything. I even cross classed all my magic users to be able to cast all magic spells. Unfortunately I’ve never finished the game because once I got to a certain area I couldn’t find where to go. Hours of searching at the last place I’ve been to, who had a lot of magic users that cast last level spells. I got bored of searching.
