Elminage II DS Remix Adds New Monsters, Camera Functions

0 For those that haven’t heard of it, the Elminage games are a series of oldschool first-person dungeon crawlers, developed by Starfish-SD. The latest in this line is a DS port of Elminage II — originally on the PSP — titled Elminage II DS Remix, which includes the features present in the PSP version, and then some.


For the DS game, Starfish included new dungeons, monsters and items. Additionally, it would appear that, after you complete certain dungeons, you can dive back in to seek out further adventures. The combat interface has also been tweaked, and you can now choose the order in which your characters attack, making your offense more efficient. Also, if you own a copy of the first Elminage game for DS, you’ll be able to input a password in Elminage II that nets you a bonus of some sort.


The coolest feature, though, is being able to replace the ingame character icons in the battle menus with a portrait of your own face, using the onboard camera, if you choose to play the game on a DSi. While this feature was present in the PSP version as well, you had to store a picture of yourself on the memory stick and import it into the game that way.


Elminage II DS Remix is scheduled for a July 1st release.
