Follow the yellow brick road to the Wizard of Oz RPG

Recommended Videos

Without L. Frank Baum’s permission the Wizard of Oz has been adapted into a Broadway musical, a film with the Muppets, and an anime where Dorothy travels into deep space. I thought Space Oz no Bouken was the limit of the license, but D3 Publisher is taking it in a more interactive direction. While Riz-zoawd (an anagram of Wizard-Oz) isn’t the only game where you search for the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, it is the only RPG.

 

As seen in the character art above, the genre shift changed the Tin Man into a bell shaped Golem. Great. Who is responsible for this? Surprisingly, Media.Vision, the creators of the Wild ARMs franchise. They’re working with D3 Publisher to release the game in Japan at an unannounced date. Even more interesting is Riz-zoawd will be Media.Vision’s first console game on a Nintendo platform. Good for them!
