The Most Gothic Dungeon Crawler You’ll See Today Even If It Has A Dog In It

By Spencer . July 26, 2013 . 3:03pm

Starfish used to make games with the Wizardry license, but after they lost that they made their own first person dungeon crawler series called Elminage. UFO Interactive brought the first game over for PSP.


Elminage Gothic 3D Remix is a spinoff of Elminage (actually, it’s a port of a spinoff) with a gothic theme and darker art style. You can lighten the mood by using the 3DS’ camera to take photos for character portraits. That’s how the Shiba Inu and lady with the pointer finger got in the game. Give yourself a pat on the back if you noticed the cameos from Twilight Tokyo Busters and Tsurippa, two other titles from Starfish.


The 3DS version also has new races like the creepy Homunculus and half-demon Devilish characters. Elminage Gothic 3D Remix was supposed to come out earlier this month, but Starfish delayed it and its release date is TBD.

  • I honestly don’t know how to feel after that trailer

  • KuroNathan

    Reminds me of Eternal Poison.

    I’m still not sure if that’s a good or bad thing, that game left me confused.

    one day i’ll have to give this a try, i played wizardy back when it came out (yes i’ve been gaming that long LOL) and loved it but haven’t really had the urge to play it since…

    I remember the great localization of the PSP version.

  • Suicunesol

    The picture-taking gimmick is really neat. I have a few art pieces I would love to insert just for kicks.

    I never got around to trying Elminage, but this looks cool despite the cheap-looking trailer. Nice music too. Hope it isn’t too plot-heavy.

    Out of all the dungeon crawlers I’ve played, some of the most strangely addictive have been the Japanese Wizardry games. There are “better” games, and there are better-looking games, but something about them scratches an itch I can’t consciously identify.

    Man I love whoever it is that draws the art, especially the enemy art of Elminage. Was never a fan of the EO style but I love this.

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Damn, Tokyo Twilight Busters. Telenet fans represent!

  • Darkbeat

    I’m very ok with a Shibe party member

  • Katboy

    umm…dafuq did I just watch???

  • Overlord Val

    I will stick with my shin megami tensei IV, tyvm.
