Japanese dungeon crawler (minus its ‘Ulm Zakir to Yami no Gishik’ subtitle) coming to Western PCs via Ghostlight
Ghostlight have recently announced that they will be bringing the classic Japanese dungeon crawler, Elminage Gothic, to PC. Elminage Gothic, originally known as Elminage Gothic: Ulm Zakir to Yami no Gishik, is the 4th entry in Starfish SD’s popular Elminage series of dungeon crawlers, originally released in Japan for PSP in 2012 and on 3DS in 2013.
Not only will this release mark the first time the Elminage series has been brought to PC but this will also be the first western release for Elminage Gothic. As neither the PSP version nor the 3DS remake have been localised before.
Some may remember the original Elminage game, which Ghostlight released in Europe last year on PSP. The game is currently available on PSN but the boxed release was a highly exclusive offering, with one of the smallest, if notthe smallest, PSP print runs ever. Only 300 very special limited edition physical copies were ever manufactured!
For those of you who enjoyed it, Elminage Gothic offers the same classic old school dungeon crawling experience but adds a darker, more gothic twist to the game’s theme and art style. It features multiple character classes, hundreds of stunningly designed monsters, creatures and demons, well over 80 hours of gameplay and it even goes right down to including the traditional “THAC0” system.
Ghostlight have said that they’re aiming at a late summer release and that the team are still in the early stages of the translation and conversion process so the content of these screenshots may be subject to change over the coming weeks. Ghostlight are working closely with the team at Starfish SD to offer increased resolution of the original artwork as well as a host of additions for the Steam release including mouse and keyboard support and of course Steam Trading Cards.
