Dungeon-crawlers are great for the world of portable gaming.
NIS America has announced Demon Gaze , a new title for the PlayStation Vita that boasts a "dungeon RPG progress system" where players move through a series of dungeons to earn better items and equipment. The idea in each level is to draw out the final boss to progress.
The game will feature high-definition character and monster illustrations, customizable party creation (with 90 different character portraits, 5 different races and 8 different classes), and sub-class flexibility via special items. The main character, Oz, wakes up to find himself in a strange land called Misred, a cursed, unexplored area "at the world's western frontier." His memories are hazy and the land is a labyrinth of dungeons and enemies. He also has newfound abilities that qualify him as a legitimate "Demon Gazer."
The title should be tempting for old-school dungeon-crawling aficionados, and we hope it turns out well. Demon Gaze is slated to hit North America and Europe some time next year.
