Make As Many Demon Gaze Adventurers As You Want, Just Pay Their Rent

Demon Gaze, Kadokawa Games and Experience’s upcoming dungeon crawler for the PlayStation Vita, will feature many demons with unique abilities, which can be used in battles or while exploring dungeons. The new character customization will allow players to make their own Demons to their liking.

We’ve talked about the rampage mode for the demons, as it greatly changes the appearance and personality of our Demons. Here’s a look at the new Demon character, Astro, in normal and rampage mode.

Comet’s special ability allows her to find hidden doors in the dungeon.


There are also several other abilities; for example some that allows players to have a 100% to escape from battle, some that continuously boosts the entire party’s max HP while continuously healing all the party members during fights.


Players will be able to customize their own characters by starting with 45 different looks, 5 races, 7 job classes, and their voice of choice. It sounds nice being able to create as many characters the players want, but there’s also a catch! Players will have to rent out a room for the Demons they create, in order for them to have a place to live.



It will be up to the players if they’d like to gather a strong core team and expand over time, or spend most of their money on rent. Having the ability to put together your own customized team will allow for strategic planning on what kind of party you’d like to have to tackle each dungeon.


Demon Gaze is slated for release on January 24th, 2013, for PlayStation Vita.

    Poor man’s Etrian Odyssey

    • Isn’t it more like “rich man’s” since it’s on the Vita?

      • Shane Guidaboni

        No, because Etrian Odyssey is freaking awesome.

        • MikeTxn

          Now now, there’s no need to fight.
          Everything is fine as long as Dungeon Crawlers expand themselves into other consoles.

        • And this game isn’t because?

    • Close. Long story short, this is a “cousin” to EO, them both being games descended by Wizardry in Japan. EO is excellent, but we must not confuse one excellent game for an entire genre. Class Of Heroes 2, for example, is coming out soon, and we recently got Elminage Original.

      • kupomogli

        Wizardry is originally a western series. It’s been far more popular in Japan than it was in the west however, as most of the latest games in the series have been exclusive for Japan. The last game was even developed by Acquire, so you could probably say it’s not even a western series anymore.

      Judging by this sentence, you’d assume Etrian Odyssey was the originator of dungeon crawlers or atleast good dungeon crawlers. But no, just someone who wants to hate on this one because it’s either not on their preferred system or because it’s not Atlus. Either or.

  • Yuriangels

    shut up and take my money!!!

  • Nitraion

    Hmm i usually don’t like First person RPG but…
    this is really nice look game…

  • Rampage mode is hella kinky

  • psycho_bandaid

    I get to lead a demon army in to battle and I only have to cover rent??

    …do you need help moving in? I really want to import this game, but I don’t have the patience to slog through it with a dictionary.

  • YourAshyAss_Elbows

    If this game was fully animated, I’d definitely buy it. Same goes for the Etrian Odyssey series.

  • Demon Gaze is sounding and looking great. I hope it gets localized sometime soon.

  • DanijoEX

    Hm…looks like I have another “Most Wanted RPG” on my list aside from Etrian Odyssey and Ragnarok Tatics.

  • DanteJones

    Oh man, dat art!

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    The girl in the thumbnail seems a little red… Dammit why did I even notice that?
    Anyways it seems like a cool game. I own Etrian Odyssey II and III, but I want to play them in order!

    The first one is hard to track down for a reasonable price, but I will keep on searching!

  • neetyneety

    So going on a rampage includes your clothes getting torn to pieces? Just like the Hulk, huh?

  • Going berserk = Added sexiness? XD

  • Göran Isacson

    Sooo Astro is a cyborg in his restrained form, but human in his unrestrained form? That seems a liiiittle backwards.

  • 猫 黒

    “Hmm, looks interesting”
    *scrolls down*
    *scrolls down*
    *sees cute girl in maid outfit*
    “I’m getting this”

  • Testsubject909

    Build a strong core, always, that’s typically how I approach things. Afterwards it’s a decision of expertise in one area or jack of all trades. Jack road makes it that you don’t need to go back to restructure your team and thus allows a nice flow, so with that in mind.

    Probably Comet to see floors, a glass cannon character or wizard for dealing with large groups, a tanker to keep everyone alive and the healer stated above seems like a good start. It really depends what’ll be available…


    Me wanna.

  • CrimsonalCore

    Hmm, first time I heard of this and I’m liking this game already. I’m planning to get a Vita this Christmas!
