Acquire swords and sorcery in a PSP RPG



The high school sim meets dungeon crawler is so in right now and Acquire is adding another game to the growing genre. In June, Ken to Mahou to Gakuen Mono (roughly with awesome alliteration: Swords, Sorcery and School Stuff) arrives in Japan. Their PSP game takes place in a school where you get to make customize classmates. Choose a look, assign stat-tweaking bonus points and select one out of fifteen jobs for your six characters.


Once you have a group the swords, sorcery and first person perspective come in to play as the classmates explore dungeons. Of course, dungeons aren’t barren. Monsters roam around and you have to fight back in fast paced combat. It sounds basic, but Ken to Mahou to Gakuen Mono cuts straight to the point without much pretext.


With this title and Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida waiting to be localized some publisher is probably speaking with Acquire about licensing now. If not they should be. Just going by past memory I believe Atlus, Capcom, Eidos and Activision worked with Acquire. All four of them only published action games like Samurai Western, Way of the Samurai and Tenchu respectively.
