Those are characters from Students of the Round, an upcoming Xbox 360 dungeon crawler from Experience. Below are some of the game’s monsters, which are just as detailed as the anime-esque elves.
The artwork looks stunning in battle. In the game you guide a to-be-named-by-the-player hero and a balanced party of fighters, paladins, healers, and wizards who are also enrolled in school. These students have to seal a demon originally defeated by the Knights of the Round.
Students of the Round was originally a PC game. Experience added a bunch of stuff to the Xbox 360 version including new monsters, items, dungeons, background music, and event visuals for an original story. These two pictures are from the new scenes.
Students of the Round comes out in February 2011 in Japan. Any North American publisher interested in localizing a dungeon crawler with high quality artwork?
