Elminage Original Faces PSP In April

By Spencer . January 27, 2011 . 2:38pm

imageFor the insatiable dungeon crawler on the go, Starfish has a port of the first Elminage game for PSP. Elminage Original: Ring of the Gods and the Maiden of Darkness is pretty barebones.


The only new features are a data install to shorten load times and the face load system. Starfish added face load to later Elminage games, which allows players to load images saved on a Memory Stick as character icons.


And there are a lot of character possibilities. Elminage Original boasts 12 races (human, dragonite, dwarf, elf…) and 16 classes (samurai, valkyrie, alchemist, lord… maid?). Finally, a dragon maid for a dungeon crawling party.

    Oh darn I thought this was gonna be for CONUS, the final image looks awesome. Though it begs me to think of the unaskable question that makes this a make or break deal for me, so I will say that it does have me interested.

      May I ask a stupid question? What’s CONUS?

    it doesn’t get more niche then this …

    Every time Elminage is mentioned on Siliconera, the knowledge that it will almost certainly never see an English release makes me sad.

    Twist the knife more, you guys. =P

    Face load is a kind of cool feature for a dungeon crawler. Instead of being locked to specific character portraits you can have anyone of your choice and not just name only, but a picture as well.

    Here’s an example party. Denim Powell, Vice Bozeg, David Hasslehoff, Ron Jeremy(in Mario costume,) Tifa Lockheart.

    I’d go for Dwarf maid for the added humour and kinkyness.
