tri-Ace Bringing New Dungeon RPG to 3DS on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The latest issue of Famitsu magazine reveals a new RPG from tri-Ace is due for release on Nintendo 3DS.

Beyond the Labyrinth is being billed as a 'Dungeon RPG for the age' and will feature bright and colourful locations, unlike earlier games in the genre which largely tended to look dull and muddy.

The new game is being directed by Takayuki Suguro who produced Valkyrie Profile 2 and Resonance of Fate. It will be published by Konami and also produced by Shingo Mukaitouge of Elebits and Dewy's Adventure fame, both of which launched on Wii.

According to Konami, the game known as Labyrinth no Kanata in Japan is currently only 60% complete. There is no Japanese release date and no further details at this point in time.

Below is a selection of screens:

Are you pleased to see tri-Ace back on a Nintendo system after the excellent Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume on DS?

She kinda reminds me of the princess in Ico....except you can see her face lol. Looks good, hopefully Jap devs won't be wusses & actually bring this to the US.

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

Covenant of the Plume was a huge disappointment for me, and a poor effort on the DS when compared to Suikoden Tierkreis which brought beautiful pre-rendered backgrounds, which used to be a staple in the Valkyrie Profile series. Even more disappointing was that covenant was an unnecessary departure from the series genre.

That being said, it's still good to see them back on a Nintendo system as they are a great developer Smilie. But a dungeon-RPG ? Seriously ? Why not a full fledged RPG ? I hate dungeon-RPGs >:-(. And also the genre isn't really much appreciated in the west, so chances to see it reach our lands are slim. You can thank Nintendo for making the 3DS region-locked now Smilie.

I get the impression this will be quite fresh, when the Producer says "Dungeon RPG for the age", it seems to me they're intentionally mixing things up a little.

Wow - bloody hell, a 3DS game? Looks brilliant - environment, character model look beyond Wii quality for sure. Sounds interesting!

It looks very nice indeed. I wonder what they've done to make it "for the age"? I've never played a Dungeon RPG (or atleast I don't think I have) so it'll probably feel fresh to me anyway.

Yeah, I don't think that I've played a dungeon RPG before either and these screens look quite impressive. I like the art style they're going for. If it makes its way to Europe, I'm certainly going to pick up a copy.Smilie

I'm guessing that a dungeon RPG is another name for a dungeon crawler such as Diablo-style games. If so then consider me well and truly sold. I'm just hoping that it isn't going to have turn-based combat...if I wanted to experience that sort of antiquated nonsense again I'd dig out my old D&D dice again lol.
