Dark Fantasy Dungeon Crawler Elminage Original Is Headed To Europe

Elminage Original, Starfish-SD’s first-person PSP dungeon crawler, is headed to Europe. Ghostlight have announced that they will be publishing the game, and that it will include the recent improvements patched into the U.S. release.


Ghostlight are also considering the idea of a collector’s edition:


So, is there going to be a boxed Collector’s Edition, I hear you ask?  Well, it’s not been decided yet but rumour has it that there might be a special promotional version in the works.  If it goes ahead, stock of the Special Edition will be very limited indeed and the game will not be released in a standard version, so it’ll certainly be one for all you fanatical collectors out there.  The game will be available this summer and I should be able to confirm a release date for the PSN version and details of the Special Edition in the next couple of weeks.


Meanwhile, over in Japan, Starfish are releasing an updated version of Elminage Gothic for the Nintendo 3DS, titled Elminage Gothic 3D Remix. Like Elminage OriginalGothic, too, was originally released for PSP.


We’ll have more news on the European release of Elminage Original as it is made available.

    When Ghostlight teased that they were going to announce a PSP game a couple of days back, part of me was hoping for Valkyria Chronicles 3/Summon Night 5. Oh well. I can still dream though.

    • We’re on the same boat, but you know what? I am still kinda interested into this game. Everytime I hear Dark Fantasy and see that kind of Gameplay, I always think of Wizardry :D

        Then the developers did do something right :)

      VC3? Haha, you should know Sega don’t care about their fans.

      Yes, I’m exaggerating

    Dungeon crawlers are coming out all over the place these days, aren’t they? Really liking the looks of this one, in particular, harkening back to the old days of DnD and all.

      Yup it’s good that PAL PSP is actually getting FPS Dungeon Crawlers. I bought a PSP a couple of months back just to play them and SRPGs. I was very annoyed to find out that all of them were US exclusives.

      Which prompted me to buy a DS but apart from Entrain 1 and another game most of those were US exclusives too. (grumble)

        Both of those consoles are Region Free though. So It should be no problem importing those games.

  • Tempted to import collector’s edition but never imported EU games before and “Very limited” sounds hard for an ebay hunt later.

  • TrevHead

    Good news, When I heard the news of the patch I actually thought it was on UK PSN aswell and was miffed when I looked for it and it wasn’t there.

    Due to buying games on US PSN I would prefer a boxed copy just so I don’t have to repeatedly switch accounts on my PSP and risk the wrath of Sony.

    No doubt the boxed copy will sell out like hot cakes to collectors and flippers, rather annoying for poor gamers who aren’t collectors but just likes physical media.
