XSEED Games To Publish Wizardry Labyrinth of Lost Souls for PS3


Torrance, Calif. (March 23, in the year of our Lord 2011) XSEED Games, an independent-minded publisher, today announced the upcoming PlayStationŽ3 system title Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls, to be released in North America and Europe in partnership with Japanese developer ACQUIRE. The game was previously released in Japan as Wizardry: Torawareshi Tamashii no Meikyű (Dungeon of Imprisoned Souls). The latest iteration of the long-standing Wizardry series and the first available for Next-Gen consoles, Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls will be exclusively available for download via PlayStationŽNetwork in spring 2011.

Having the opportunity to work with ACQUIRE to bring over Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is truly an exciting one for us, said Jun Iwasaki, President of XSEED Games. Weve long admired the Wizardry series as a pioneer of the RPG genre, so with our upcoming release players will be able to experience a defining moment in gaming history.

One of the premiere RPG experiences since 1981, the original Wizardry has a storied history and is credited as The Granddaddy of RPGs, having been among the first to utilize grid-based dungeon crawling gameplay when it was originally conceived for early PC platforms. Wizardry the original and its successors - established a basic and classic command-driven battle system with still images of monsters to fight, which would be emulated in later games for years to come. Wizardry was the first to formally introduce an innovative first-person perspective, the fundamental stepping stone leading to one of todays most popular gaming genres. Whats more, RPG fans also owe the concept of prestige classes to Wizardry, an important element and basic building block of the modern-day RPG class system.

Following in the grand tradition of the Wizardry series is the very first version available for todays Next-Gen gamers; Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls features a deceptively simple game system complementing deep and involving dungeon designs. Hardcore RPG fans will find an extensive and grueling 1st-person 3D grid-based dungeon crawl experience rendered in high-definition with hand-drawn characters and sprites by famous commercial artist Yuki Hayabusa. Players will develop a party of up to six members culled from a rich mix of five races and eight classes, and prepare to encounter over 120 different monsters.

Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls, developed by ACQUIRE and to be published by XSEED Games, will be available for download via PlayStation Network this spring.
