Update (Thu 18th Jun, 2020 14:05 BST): Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? - Infinite Combate hits Switch on August 7th in Europe and August 11th in North America, it has been confirmed by publisher PQube. It's also getting a physical release on Switch.
Original Story (Fri 6th Dec, 2019 14:15 GMT): Despite having one of the cringiest names to ever grace a video game, Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? - Infinite Combate is heading to Nintendo Switch in the west, it has been confirmed.
The announcement comes from PQube and MAGES, both of which have confirmed that the game - an RPG based on the popular manga and anime series also known as DanMachi - will arrive on Nintendo's platform both physically and digitally in 2020.
You can get a taste of what this one's all about in the brand new trailer above, but we also have an official description for you:
Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? - Infinite Combate is set in a fantasy realm where gods have limited their divine powers in search of excitement and to experience the hardships of the lower world. To interact with humans, each deity has founded a Familia, which are groups that adventurers can join to socialise and support each other, before they set out into the dangerous labyrinth called Dungeon.
The gameplay is an exciting mix between dungeon crawling with RPG elements and a visual novel-style story, including events from the first Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? anime season and new content! Apart from the extensive Story Mode, players will be able to test their skills in procedurally-generated Extra Dungeons and find out more about other characters during Date Events.
Does this seem like it could be your cup of tea? Are you a fan of the anime already? Tell us below.
One of those series I watched when it first came out on Crunchyroll, promptly forgot about and then was suitably confused when I learned how massive the Hestia love was. It was... not atrocious but definitely walked that line.
...what? What even is that title...
Funny title, not something I can get into though.
Wtf is this title?
The capitalisation in NintendoLife titles sometimes make it really hard to figure out what part of it is the game title and what part isn't.
I wish the actual characters in-game weren't chibi. It would draw me into the world more if the game was built around the characters actual size.
@Noid yeah why do news sites in general do this? It makes no sense to write every a capital letter every word
The anime wasn't bad, but the gameplay I've seen looks real iffy..
Too bad most of these anime based games end up as subpar otaku cash grabs, because there's real potential for great games in many of them..
Looks like a low budget dungeon crawler that could had easily being ported to the DS or 3DS. If the price is right I may checkit out but I don't think I'll spend anything close to $30 on this.
At least it's not another anime-themed fighting game, although this looks a bit too much like a mobile game for my tastes.
Sounds pretty Greek.
This looks and sounds like Dragalia Lost.
Before they even showed the gameplay - which looks just like Draglia Lost - I thought the singer and the music was very similar to the main menu Dragalia Lost singing and music.
The company where my wife works has been publishing the manga in the US for the past few years so I'm familiar w/ the title - it's actually a running joke in our house - so we may have to at least look into it.
Do we get to see any skin flick on here????
Imma get this BOI. PQube are our heroes.
What a dumb title and gameplay. This is a cash grab. I guess I'll buy it.
The answer is yes.
@Noid Aren't you excited to play 'Scores 2020'? 😅
@heiko I interpreted it as "Is it wrong to try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon?", but I could imagine what a game called Scores 2020 would be like - perhaps a sports manager simulator.
Gameplay footage in a trailer? What is this madness?
Not if you're into human trafficking, to everyone else, yes.
Googles the Anime and spotted some of the other odd named animes/mangas
Best named went to this one:
Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?
Another game that will definitely get a crappy and hated review because fanservice.
Oh boy, I can't wait for O'Reilly to bash into this indiscriminately for having too much cringe and "plot".
@Joeynator3000 Honestly, I'm excited for the reviews just to see how sensitive people are about fan service
Dating girls in dungeon is ok, just don't pick up pigeons or bats.
Why is NL writing about this game, they still haven't reviewed Summer Sweetheart?
I already ordered my play-asia physical copy. So unless there is english voice acting in the NA version, with a physical release as well, screw that.
It scores a english release but ONLY digital if you want Physical your options are limited to PA or EU if there is one to be had there.
No matter the universe, whether it's the original Greek myths, the Percy Jackson series, or this light novel / anime series, Hestia always gets treated as an afterthought. Could we get some love for the Hearth Goddess?
@PBandSmelly @KayFiOS You haven't read many light novels, have you? It's now a common trend for Japanese light novel titles to be hilariously long and on the nose in describing the premise.
@SwitchForce Play-Asia does have an english subbed version for Switch and Ps4 of this game. It's 54$ after everything (US pricing)
Really enjoyed the anime but this game looks awful. I really wish they would stop doing all these anime game cashgrabs. Fairy Tail looks decent though.
I was hoping the "Update:" on the front page tile contained an answer to the question. ^^
as long as she isnt boiling bunnys in the dungeon what could go wrong.
@BulbasaurusRex Hestia is given some love in this series from what I've watched.
Hestia is bestia
The title makes me want to buy, the gameplay not so much.
@BrintaPap @Noid Yeah, it's extremely confusing sometimes. I asked NL about it once and I believe it was @antdickens who answered by saying it was a commonly used style that they preferred or something like that. Can't find the post as the search function is kinda limited here.
Regarding the game... Looks kinda bland, but the title is amusing, as it doesn't really correlate with what's shown in the trailer, or maybe I'm missing something.
best title ever?
This looks like a crappy cell phone game.
Oh, updated article, I was wondering why I was getting notifications from a post I made last year. lol
I'm glad it's getting a western release and I'm glad it's an anime game that is, for once - not a generic fighting game with anime characters slapping in.
But looking at the screen shots, it... doesn't look great. I might still give it a try though, especially if there is a demo.
The first season of the anime was fantastic! Although the second season was rushed and tried to cover too much content in too little time... (so common for anime these days...)
If it included hardcore hentai I would buy it in a heartbeat.
@ryancraddock Wait, is this the title of a game, or are you asking us this question "for a friend?"
@BrintaPap Because that's how you're supposed to write titles and headlines? Capitalize each word except articles (a, an, the, etc.) Maybe it's one of those things they don't teach kids in school anymore, like cursive writing. But it used to be standard elementary English. Whether they do it in elementary or journalism school now, it's clear it's still correct since that's how every major newspaper of the world does it.
@NEStalgia To be fair, this article title did capitalize more words than it should have. As you said, you don't capitalize articles save for the first word, nor do you capitalize prepositions with fewer letters than a certain length (either 6 or 7). Thus, the two "to"s, "in," and "a" ("up" in this case serves as part of a two word verb, not a preposition) should not be capitalized in either the article title nor the official description, although it is correctly done in the official title displayed in the trailer itself.
I can't get over Combate. COMBATE? What is that??
