Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is arriving on PC this month, bringing some classic animu dungeon crawler gameplay to the PC nearly ten years after it originally debuted on the PlayStation 3 according to a press release from the publisher. Yes, the PlayStation 3.
You may not have heard of Wizardry, but it's a game franchise that stretches all the way back to 1981. The franchise has regrettably been rather dead since 2014 despite there having been eight core titles in the franchise and thirty-nine spinoffs in the 30+ years of its existence. Now, one of these spinoffs is making its way to PC nearly ten years after it first came to the West.
What is Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls About?
The concept of Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls should be well-familiar with any fans of Dungeons & Dragons. You assemble a party of six heroes, selecting from eight classes, five races, and two genders to make the perfect team. You'll be able to change classes in the middle of adventure if you feel that would help out, or you can just level them up and make them stupidly powerful instead.
The game features over 100 monsters hand-drawn by series illustrator Jun Suemi and character illustrations by artist Yuki Hayabusa. Of course, the world is also fraught with danger — each dungeon has more than its fair share of hazards.
You'll be able to pick up Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls when it launches on Steam and the Humble Store on January 15, 2020, for $14.99 / £12.99 / €14.99 or your regional equivalent. In the meantime, you can add it to your wishlist on Steam.
