Adventure Bar Story was a quirky and enjoyable release on the 3DS eShop, and now developer Rideon Japan - with publisher CIRCLE Entertainment - is bringing a spin-off to the West called Adventure Labyrinth Story.
Described as a rogue-like RPG, you set off into a randomly generated dungeon with the goal of retrieving legendary treasure. You start with nothing and try to build your way up as you explore, but if you die you revert back to level one and simply start again.
You can see what it's all about - and how it brings in the setting and characters from Adventure Bar Story - in the trailer below.
This one's due to arrive on 21st July in Europe, with a broad 'August' window for North America. Is it going on your wishlist?
Ah nice, love an old school roguelike every now and then. Definetly will be considering this one.
I'd be interested if the price was right.
So there is only one dungeon and if you don't survive you have to do it all over again?
Is this the same game that was on Playstation Mobile?
Just once I'd like to see a game that is an actual adventure when it has the word "Adventure" in it..
This game series is definitely worth a try if you like RPGs like Atelier. Despite the modest production values, Adventure Bar Story was ridiculously charming and comfy to play, and is worth way more than it's 5€ price tag. And I'm willing to bet this game will be at least just as good, seeing how I played the original when it was available for Vita on PS Mobile.
If you are curious even a tiniest bit, buy it Day One to support RideOn and Circle. It's not worth it to wait for a sale worth of 1-2€.
Pretty great game. It was free on PS Mobile, so I enjoyed it on my Xperia Play. Too bad they're not rereleasing this on Vita. Some PSM devs rereleased their games as "normal" indie games on Vita's PSN store, sometimes as enhanced editions, so I was hoping this would follow suit for the people who aren't able to play it.
At least Nintendo people will get to play it now.
EDIT: You may want to fix the line about the game now being brought to the west as it has technically been in the west for years now.
Oooh a roguelike!
I really enjoyed Adventure Bar Story, and being a fan of Rogue-like RPGs, I'm pretty sure I will like this one too.
Got to give it a try
I liked ABS, but somehow it turned into a straight up grindfest. I would love to get this one, but I JUST got to the 5th Stratum in Etrian Odyssey Untold!
Edit: The "thud" sound of the name of the game sounds SO sarcastic!
I loved Adventure Bar Story.
I hate "PURE" Rogue-Like with a passion.
I know this title was released on Vita some time ago.
What I want to know is if there's some kind of progression in this game, like every time you die, you still keep some things so your next runs, you don't "totally" start from scratch.
If it's a "pure" Rogue-like, it will be a pass for me. But if there's some progression, I might buy this because of my love for Adventure Bar Story.
Doesn't look amazing but I might check it out if it's really cheap.
@HeroOfCybertron sounds like it is to me. They must be trying to give it new life on another platform although the one for PS mobile was free when I played it on the Vita. So why in the world are they trying to sell it now?
Hopefully it's better than the previous game. That one had some potential, but squandered it at every turn. :/
EDIT: Oops, forgot to watch the trailer before posting...it's...a Rogue-like. No fancy bits or unique features. I have two 3DS VC games that already do everything this game does, and one of them (Dragon Crystal) has better graphics and a Dragon companion for $3...squandered again...
@WarlockNem I thought the one on PS Mobile was just a demo and you had to purchase the full game through the demo.
To clear things up a bit, this is an enhanced version of the PS Mobile game Adventure Bar Labyrinth. The original game had only two dungeons and one character. I haven't watched the trailer yet, but based on screenshots, this 3DS version has more characters, more dungeons, more items, and is generally much more robust (which makes it worth an actual price tag).
