While the localization for Omega Labyrinth Z was canceled back in June 2018, publisher PQube has revealed details on the special edition that would have been released, aptly titled The Mammary Maze Edition, that just wasn’t meant to be. (Thanks, Rice Digital!)
Here are the highlights:
On the name of the Special Edition:
Anne-Lou, PQube Product Manager: “Well, firstly, “maze” is just another word for “labyrinth”. Secondly, I love alliteration and this name has both alliteration and assonance, so this just sounded great to me. Thirdly, we wanted something that wasn’t overly crude, but instead was more subtle, unique, and most importantly, funny. I think we achieved this with the final title. We did have other ideas such as The Awakened Edition and The Appraisal Edition, but The Mammary Maze Edition just stuck.”
On the alternate cover for the Special Edition:
Anne-Lou: “The alternative covers were added to cater to the audience of the title, whilst still acting within the guidelines that exist for official cover art. Omega Labyrinth Z has some beautiful art assets and we wanted to showcase some of these that wouldn’t normally be seen as a kind of treat for the fans. We wanted to show that we understand the game and the audience, so instead of being coy, we embraced the sexy. Also, I worked really hard on those puns.”
The Special Edition was going to include:
- The game, with alternate covers for both the PS4 and Vita versions
- An artbook
- A Massaged Prawn
- A keyring of Bellona
- A Collector’s Box
- A padded mousemat of Rio
While the game’s localization has been canceled, the mousepad will be made available via Rice Digital’s online store, which you can find here.
Omega Labyrinth Z is available in Japan for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
