Dungeon RPG Excave Being Localized For 3DS Release



Back in 2013, Mechanic Arms released a top-down dungeon RPG titled Excave for the Nintendo eShop. This game is now being localized for a 3DS release in North America and Europe by Teyon.


Excave lets you customize your character with equipment that can be modified and upgraded, and has 50 dungeon levels to trek through. Five of those levels contain boss fights. Excave is almost a dungeon RPG for beginners. It has elements of roguelikes, but it isn’t quite as punishing. You can read more about the game here.


Excave will be released on February 19th in North America for $4.99. Europe will get the game soon after, although a date has not yet been announced.
