Holy Sorcery Story Has Monster Generators Kind Of Like Gauntlet

By Sato . March 18, 2013 . 11:27pm


Holy Sorcery Story’s dungeon crawling adventure may be simple and full of strangely cute monsters, but beware, there are many dangers that await!


Here’s a look at the many situations that can land Pupuru in trouble:


The Monster House

Entering one of these will spawn numerous monsters that will simultaneously assault Pupuru. Not all areas are safe!


Strong Monsters

You may encounter some monsters that are too tough at your current level, that not even the Kuusii Laser can take down. Leveling up or finding stronger equipment should give you a better chance of survival.

There are merchants that sell various items in dungeons. What happens if you try casting a fire spell on him…?

… He destroys you, reminiscent of another merchant I’ve seen elsewhere when you try to rob him.



Scroll of Super Explosion


Using this special scroll will cast a powerful explosive spell and blow up all nearby monsters.

… Unfortunately, it also blows you up too.



When Pupuru is knocked out, she is sent back to town and you lose all the items and money from that dungeon run. Learning from trial and error will be an important factor in clearing dungeons and their many traps.




Holy Sorcery Story will be released on March 28th, 2013 on PlayStation Vita.

    there should be more mysterious dungeon games like these. If it comes to EU I might think of getting a vita.

    • AdachiTohru

      Its coming, COmpile Hearts announces theyre looking for a publisher for the game !

  • KiTA

    It’s a turn based roguelike. That’s different than a Dungeon Crawler…

    • Roguelikes are considered dungeon crawlers. Not all dungeon crawlers are first-person turn-based RPGs.

      • KiTA

        To my knowledge, Dungeon Crawlers has come to mean “Wizardry Clone” in the modern vernacular.

    • Testsubject909

      But… roguelikes are dungeon crawlers… The definition stemmed mainly from the punishing nature of older dungeon crawlers…

  • psycho_bandaid

    After ZHP I will never ignore this type of game again.

    • “He destroys you, reminiscent of another merchant I’ve seen elsewhere when you try to rob him.” that part reminded me of ZHP a lot haha

      • Xalsunwolf

        I think of that and two others: Spleunky and Pokemon: Mystery Dungeon. So much shotgun…… so much shot…………………….. (Coma)

    • Testsubject909

      If you can find it, try out Azure Dreams. Grab the simultaneous turn-based dungeon crawling style you familiarized yourself with thanks to ZHP, mix in a bit of Pokemon with a bit of Dark Cloud/Breath of Fire (fairy) city building and a bit of dating sim and boom. Azure Dreams.

      You can find it on Playstation 1. No idea if it’s in the list of PS1 classics that’s on PSN.

      • Never really had the chance to properly delve into Breath of Fire, but this sounds interesting. I’m going to check PSN tonight and see if I can dig it up.

  • why does this remind me of Reccetear ?

  • noctis_nox

    Wow! this is an interesting game!

  • Follower_of_Pram

    Why must the video make me depressed with her constantly losing?

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    I’m afraid to believe in this game, it being Compile Heart and all. It looks good but…

  • Zenthos

    I love my dungeon crawler games. Gives me another reason why I should buy a vita.

  • Sergio Briceño

    “… Unfortunately, it also blows you up too.”

    Lol. Gotta love Siliconera’s humour.

  • Testsubject909

    But the real question is… Will it come with curry?
