This Kowloon Highschool Chronicle dungeon crawler looks ace

News by Matt S. 

Developer, Toybox Games, and publisher, Arc System Works, have announced that Kowloon Highschool Chronicle will be released on the Nintendo eShop in the west on February 4. This is a dungeon crawler that you've probably not heard of before, but it really does look like it could be something special.

It's a remake of a game that was released in Japan only back in 2004, and is a blend of classical dungeon crawler and social simulator. It's the social side of things that seem to be both amusing and different. As the press release states: Express yourself in the story through feelings and actions. Why choose a canned response when you can give a character an angry glare, loving touch, or a bizarre lick? How everyone views you depends on how straight (or insane) you present yourself.

I do like giving my favourite characters a good lickin'.

There's also some English gameplay video to whet your appetite. Given that this game is just weeks away now, it's another feather in the over-crowded JRPG library for the start of the year. It's both great and intimidatingly time-consuming.
