Rockin’ Android is continuing their mission of bringing doujin games to consoles with Crescent Pale Mist. The North America publisher of Suguri and Gundemonium picked up the rights to Crescent Pale Mist a few months ago.
The game popped up in the ESRB database as a PlayStation 3 and PSP title yesterday. Here’s how the rating board describes it.
This is a side-scrolling adventure game in which players help a young witch named Yonou traverse another dimension to uncover the source of a magical mist. Players run and jump between the background and foreground of each level while using sword and laser attacks to slash at fantastical monsters (e.g., dragons, zombies, bat-like creatures, "living armor" suits). Some battles are fast-paced and frenetic; defeated enemies generally disappear in explosive bursts of colorful light.
I think this video does a better job.
A humble thanks to everyone who sent this in!
