Gungho Online Entertainment America announced Dokuro will be available on October 16 for $19.99 as a PlayStation Network download. Dokuro is also slated for a European release this winter.
Dokuro puts you in control of a skeleton hero, Dokuro, who works for the Dark Lord as a grunt. One day the Dark Lord captures a helpless Princess that he forced into marriage, an act that breaks Dokuro’s heart. When Dokuro sees the Princess cry he decides to set her free and guide her through the Dark Lord’s trap filled castle. Dokuro can double jump to flip switches and open a path for the Princess. He can also carry her when he drinks a blue potion that transforms Dokuro into a dashing hero.
We’ll have more on Dokuro later today and check out our interview with the game’s director who told us the game’s original tag line was "Have You Saved a Princess lately?"
