Update: It looks like the game is being delayed until after Christmas:
Original Story [Fri 27th Nov, 2020 11:15 GMT]: Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? - Infinite Combate has to rank as one of the silliest names for a video game ever, but the RPG – which is based on Danjon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka, or 'DanMachi' as it's more commonly known amongst fans – is still a good pick for ardent followers of the genre.
When it was originally released in Japan, a shmup based on the game – entitled Is It Wrong To Try To Shoot ’em Up Girls In A Dungeon? – was offered as pre-order DLC, but western publisher PQube has confirmed that it is releasing that very same game for free on the eShop – and you don't even have to own the main game to access it.
Is It Wrong To Try To Shoot ’em Up Girls In A Dungeon? was supposed to go live earlier this week, but PQube has noted that there have been some issues in making it available on the eShop:
Here's some PR:
Take control of Aiz Wallenstein, Loki Familia’s first-class swordswoman, and fight through hordes of enemies in this shoot’em up side-scroller based on DanMachi (Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?).
Aiz has powerful “wind shots.”
Choose from a total of five support characters from the story and utilize their diverse shooting styles to complete the dungeon! You start off with just Tiona and Lefiya, and you unlock the other three once you’ve cleared the game.
Collect power-ups that appear as you defeat enemies to gain power-ups, from speed to more lives, and get the best possible score!
The game has four stages, each with a boss, so get ready to change tactics and blast them away before trying again!
There are four difficulty levels, Easy, Normal, Hard and Death, giving a chance for beginners and experienced shooters alike to enjoy this free shoot’em up!
It looks like one of those old flash games, though as a free title I can't imagine it'll have much to it - still a nice gesture regardless.
Can’t hurt to give it a try I guess?!
Reminds me of Mighty Gunvolt, a freebie game for whoever got Azure Striker Gunvolt.
It was decent as a freebie, they gave it paid DLC to paid it out a bit, but they followed it up with a pretty robust sequel that eventually got the physical release treatment!
Point is little gestures like these can have surprising prospects if they catch on.
It'll do for a bit of a mess around
I preferred to be behind the bike shed, but caves could be better I'll give it a try.
I am gonna download it just to have that title in my recently played list.
The pixel art looks nice, and can't complain much about a free game, huh?
Yeah, not even for free.
Is it weird that I'm more hyped for this instead of the actual RPG?
Why would I want to play as Whositstein, even if it isn't wrong? #TeamLili
Nice to see one of the rare preorder-only games becoming more widely available. Might never actually play it, but still. I think the JP codes have expired by now too, so this may be the only way to get it.
How sad is it that this totally free game has much more detailed pixel art than a lot of the indies available for purchase for $10+ in the eshop?
This looks like good fun.
Thought this was a fanservice game...I'm disappointed.
Best game name
Great anime, terrible title. Confusing choice of game genre. Still, as a freebie I might as well give it a go.
I can afford free.
You can't beat free. Although the Danmachi action/rpg was a mediocre borefest, so I wouldn't expect much from this game either.
I pre-ordered the Asian version for nothing. At least the mini-game comes fully .translated this time.
You should've used art from the side series "Sword Oratoria" or a mix ofvthe two. The "DanMachi" Shmup, PQube Is Releasing, does not use Hestia's familia.
Why do i think about the end credits of smashbros when seeing this??
Love the anime will probably take a look at it.
As long as it's the right, "shoot 'em up" ;-J
just finished season 1 of this show and it's pretty good even though Konosuba is way better
Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?
You might get a hernia.
I want to play the main game but only if it goes on sale at some point.
I’m down for a crappy free shmup.
tbh, this would be better if you where playing as a monster and shooting down the main cast
Haha, "Pee" Qube, hilarious...
