Labyrinth of Zangetsu releases September 29th in Japan

    Acquire and KaeruPanda announced dungeon RPG Labyrinth of Zangetsu releases September 29th in Japan for PS4, Switch, and PC via Steam. Pre-orders open on June 20th and first-print copies include a mini original soundtrack.

    Labyrinth of Zangetsu is new 3D dungeon RPG by Acquire. Its gameplay systems are a return to the “roots” of hack-and-slash. It is a title that emphasizes “wa” (the Japanese-style), which is Acquire’s specialty. It depicts a “deep” world view illustrated by ink painting brush strokes. And features a “mixture of wa” sound that channels the music of Japan’s various eras, from “gagaku” (traditional Japanese music and dance) to “noh” (traditional Japanese masked dance-drama). Labyrinth of Zangetsu is developed based on these four keywords.

    World View: A World Painted Jet Black by the “Ink of Destruction” Calamity

    The story is set in Ido, “the city of the morning moon,” which continues to fight against the calamity that is the “Ink of Destruction.”

    Ido belongs to Tokinokuni, a country that resembles medieval Japan, and is a fortress city protected by a powerful magical technology barrier located directly beneath the “moon” that always shines in the sky.

    The city summons travelers from all over the world to select “Ink Destroyers” from among those with extraordinary power.

    Ink Destroyers are given the task to proceed toward “Sakyuu,” the most dangerous area.

    Ink Beasts: Born from the Ink of Destruction

    When the living come into contact with the “Ink of Destruction,” some went mad and fell to death, while others became demons and began to attack their loved ones nd devour their neighbors.

    When the dead come into contact with the ink, they are resurrected and wander the world to increase their ranks.

    Furthermore, inanimate can become ferocious, wriggling monsters…

    These were called “Ink Beasts” and were feared by the people.
