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.
