We’ve been covering Labyrinth of Zangetsu since early June, and we heard nothing about a localization for the last few weeks. We still don’t have an official announcement of the game being localized, but today we know it’s definitely happening, thanks to an ESRB rating that popped up.
Labyrinth of Zangetsu will be getting a localized release via PQube, so we can expect the game to launch in both Europe and North America. As PQube hasn’t shared this info themselves just yet, we’ll have to wait a bit longer for a specific release date.
You can read the ESRB description for Labyrinth of Zangetsu below.
This is an action-adventure game in which players lead characters on a quest to stop a blight across ancient Japan. Players explore dungeon-like environments and battle stylized creatures (e.g., demons, ink-stained creatures, shadows) in turn-based combat. Players choose actions from a menu (e.g., attack, parry, magic) to battle enemies; attacks are accompanied by sword slashes and screen-shaking effects. Characters sometimes emit splashes of black liquid/ink when hit; one hand-drawn sequence depicts black splatters around bodies, and a hand smeared with black liquid. The word “damn” appears in the game.
