Nippon Ichi Software has been teasing a new game, and it’s been announced as Labyrinth of Galleria: Coven of Dusk, a new entry from the Labyrinth of Refrain series, and it’ll release for PS4, PS Vita, Nintendo Switch in Japan this July. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]
Tatsuya Izumi, who previously wrote and directed Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk and The Witch and the Hundred Knight, is the scenario writer and director for Labyrinth of Galleria: Coven of Dusk. Joining him is Takehito Harada as the character designer and Tenpei Sato as the composer.
The story setting and characters are completely new. The magazine shows off the protagonist and other characters including the energetic and optimistic Eureka, a witch known as Madam Malta and her granddaugther named Periko.
A new “Miramachina” feature is also introduced. This allows you to call out a tank that stands in front of the party. While you can’t give it commands, they can attack to help out the party.
The same guys behind the development of Labyrinth of Refrain will be working on the game and Emi Evans returns for music, but the game itself is considered more of a follow-up title than a sequel. Ryokutya notes that it certainly feels more like a successor as the game’s world and era feels different from the previous title as well.
Labyrinth of Galleria: Coven of Dusk releases for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch in Japan on July 25, 2019. It’ll get a limited edition version with its OST and other bonuses to be revealed on a later date.
