As we mentioned this weekend, Xseed picked up Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls from Acquire. It’s coming soon too, Xseed has their PS3 dungeon crawler slated for a spring release as a PlayStation Network download in North America and Europe. Acquire originally distributed Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls as a digital download in Japan too, but later packed it with its sequel for a retail release.

 

“Having the opportunity to work with Acquire to bring over Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is truly an exciting one for us. We’ve long admired the Wizardry series as a pioneer of the RPG genre, so with our upcoming release players will be able to experience a defining moment in gaming history,” said Jun Iwasaki, President of Xseed Games.

 

Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls will be the first localized Wizardry game in nearly a decade. Yes, it’s been that long since Atlus released Wizardry: The Forsaken Land for PlayStation 2. This is also the first Acquire developed title from Xseed. Acquire is also behind the Way of the Samurai series and the upcoming PSP action/adventure game Akiba’s Trip.

  • HarryHodd

    Seeing screens in English makes me very excited about this.

  • Ereek

    G, N, E?
    Not L, N, C?

    Or am I missing the point of those “Registry” values?

    • Feynman

      It’s Wizardry, not Megaten. Good and Evil, not Law and Chaos.

      • kupomogli

        Feynman is correct.

        Law and Chaos has been used for most games, even as early as the first Dungeons and Dragons board games. The Dungeons and Dragons games had the base alignment at Lawful, Neutral, Chaotic, but the additional ones are Lawful Neutral, Lawful Evil, Neutral Good, Neutral Evil, Chaotic Good, and Chaotic Evil. They later changed it to Law, Good, Neutral, Evil, and Chaos.

        Most games I’ve played show LNC, some have had LGNEC, but Wizardry is the only series I’ve played that has GNE.

      • Ereek

        LNC is used in a lot more than MegaTen, you know. MegTen didn’t even invent it.

        I’m actually most familiar with the 9-alignment system, though I understand for something like this it would be pointless to add it.

        • Feynman

          I’m quite aware of that. However, being that this website caters primarily to fans of Japanese games, and RPGs in particular, I considered a Megaten reference would more likely be understood than a reference to the D&D alignment grid, given that I had no way of knowing exactly how familiar you were with alignment systems in general.

  • Testsubject909

    I’m so happy to see this… Tears, manly tears are drawing forth… I can’t stop them!

  • Arcm

    Wow XSEED is taking all of my monies lately and I couldn’t be happier. : )

  • PrinceHeir

    finally i can play this :D

    more First Person Dungeon Crawler please :P

  • Testsubject909

    By the way, stupid question. But I take it Dia is the healer of the group?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2BOP4Z5KE5N7T5MUGIV6TEFMT4 Thomas

      Actually, in this case, no! Dia happens to be the main character in these screenshots (new games open with character creation, then you’re able to create additional characters or recruit pre-made characters until you’ve reached the party total of 6)… and although her stats naturally incline her toward priestly arts, I put a ton of points into intelligence for her, and made her a mage — like, an offensive magic-user, rather than a support magic user.

      (She still gets SOME healing spells, of course, but her main role in this party is to magic foes into dust!)

      Hooray for (at least partially) subverting stereotypes! ;)

  • Phoenix_Apollo

    It’s due out sometime this season too. XSeed really seems to know how to cater to their fans. I’m very impressed. Hopefully, their site will get a forum soon.

    I’m glad to finally be giving Xseed some money again. It’s been a long few years.

      Sounds like you need a PSP, my friend! ;)

        Until I go on tour in August, I won’t have time for one. I don’t see the point in playing a portable system at home when I have a perfectly good PS3 and when I’m on the subway, that’s when I do all my reading, and brainstorming. Having a portable game system would just mean I’d never get anything else done. The only reason I’m even picking one up for August is that I’ve learned, firsthand, that when you are playing in a place you’re unfamiliar with, you spend a good three hours before a show, literally, doing nothing. You don’t want to get crazy before a show because then your performance will suffer (AFTER a show is a different story), so you just kinda sit there and wait for them to need you.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2BOP4Z5KE5N7T5MUGIV6TEFMT4 Thomas

          The PSP is the perfect portable TO play at home, though, since it natively supports TV-out functionality… and, at least in my opinion, there are a greater number of must-have games on the PSP than on any other current-gen system, which is really the main reason to buy *any* game system.

          …But then, I *am* a JRPG nut, and good-to-great JRPGs (or variations thereof) do seem to represent a shockingly large percentage of the PSP’s game library… so perhaps it was just made for a man like me!

    • HarryHodd

      Yep they’ve been neglecting the PS3 for too long.

    This would get interesting, since this is the 2nd post-#Wizardry 8 North America will get.
