Necromancer 2 Lurches onto DSiWare in Japan Next Month

Posted by James Newton

Western release currently uncertain

Hudson Soft's Necromancer probably isn't on your list of Top Ten Games for a DSiWare Revival. Released on the TurboGrafx-16 over twenty years ago, it's a decent RPG that received a sequel for mobile devices last year. Guess which version DSiWare is receiving?

Titled Necromancer: Nightmare Reborn, it's a beefed-up conversion of the mobile title promising enhanced visuals and, naturally, use of the DS's double screens. Fans of H. R. Giger-inspired RPGs are criminally ignored by many sectors of the gaming industry, but it looks like Necromancer will hit the spot.

There's currently no news on a Western release and owing to the obscurity of the franchise it may well stay that way, but Hudson has surprised us before so don't count this one out just yet.

I'm interested if this gets an EU release even though it is a mobile phone port.

A sequel to a game that isn't even on VC yet? You'll forgive me if I don't automatically jump for joy at the very thought. Neutopia 3, now THAT would be something else. Got that, Hudson? You promised that game umpteen YEARS ago!
