King Sim RPG Order Land Is Headed To The Nintendo 3DS

By Eugene . December 6, 2013 . 4:27pm

Time sure flies. The last time we heard from developers Poisoft they had just put out their incredibly deep Wiiware game Oudaa—“order” in English, but also a play on the word for king in Japanese: “Ouu”. A 16-bit graphic game, the king simulator was all about ruling a kingdom with an iron fist of sanctions and alliances while dispatching heroes to do your bidding.

 

 

Now, they’re bringing Order over to the Nintendo 3DS as Order Land, which bundles Order with another of their games into the same universe, I Want to Save the World Too! This combination updates the game with revamped graphics, while sticking to the same retrolicious style and integrates Save the World’s adventure mode and Order’s king-mode together.

 

 

In I Want to Save the World Too!’s adventure mode, you can create an adventurer who’ll wander the land, doing quests, fighting monsters and all those other normal shenanigans heroes get up to, with a slight twist—you might be doing it in your other save data’s King’s country.

 

As a King, you’ll be able to come across your created hero—or other heroes from StreetPass and QR Codes—and hire them off on quests. Guess you’d best make sure your hero will survive, then!

 

Be warned, Order is by far the more text-heavy of the two, with a definite requirement to grasp at least a good modicum of kanji (or just having a really good dictionary alongside you) as you rule the kingdom, but any RPG player worth their asking price can get through adventurer mode easily.

 

What are you thinking this will cost you when Order Land comes out on the Nintendo 3DS eShop on December 11th? It’s only going to be a very affordable 1000 yen ($10)!

    Gosh I would buy this immediately if it came out in English. I suppose there is no chance of that. I love games like this. :(

    Waaaaannnnttt

    Will the third round of the trilogy and be 32 bit?

  • Warboss Aohd

    that……actually looks fun.

  • Kaetsu

    This looks like it could be really fun! It’s also not anything to “Japanese” so it would probably do fine if they localised it.

  • Reiswindy

    I really hope this one gets localized.

    Also these were the guys that developed Kersploosh! That was fun game too.

  • Michael Batista

    This type of game is easily up my ally of interests. I would support it coming to the states as well.

  • ronin4life

    OOOOO…
    OoO//

  • InfectedAI

    Looks interesting. Since their WiiWare game was localized maybe this will too.

    • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

      I sure hope so. Which WiiWare game of theirs got localized?

      • InfectedAI

        The one mentioned in the article’s first paragraph, Oudaa.

        • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

          That wasn’t localized. :( He was just saying that Oudaa is the English word “order”, not that the game had been translated into English, sadly! I would love to play it.

          • InfectedAI

            Ah, shame. Hopefully this 3DS game gets localized. I think there’s a decent market for it in the US.

          • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

            I hope so! Would be an immediate purchase for me.

  • JustThisOne

    Omigosh, I would love this! *__* I love ruling with an iron fist/making horrible political decisions!

    • Morricane

      So you wanna be a tyrant? :)

      • JustThisOne

        Tyrant? Nah. As long as they listen to what I say, things will turn out good eventually. :> And it’s a game, so they have no choice, haha!

  • Ladius

    This looks really interesting, especially considering those managementgrand strategy mechanics.

    I’m not hyped… It looks less nice than Etrion Odyssey…
