Wizardry on the PS3 being localized, hell frozen over
« on: December 04, 2010, 10:49:11 AM »
I think this deserves all the notice it can get.



It's a two-pack of the PSN Wizardry titles: Dungeon of Imprisoned Souls/Town of Imprisoned Spirits.


Might have to import, because odds of this being localized are not good.

Yeah, a user on another forum brought that to my attention. I so wish it would get ported to the West, seeing as how I can't understand Japanese.

I doubt it will see a western release, which is very sad.

I approve this localization~

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

Ahh Wizardry, alive and kickin' =D  There were Japanese PSX remakes of the first five Wizardry games that never got localized either, they looked really good too.

Only Wizardry game I ever played was on the NES.

I made my crew, got them geared up, and died w/in 10 steps into the dungeon.

Got to love a game that demands respect.

VI & VII were remade for the Saturn, too. I have the import of it.

Talk about old school... I love Wizardry.  I still remember using graphing paper to map out those dungeon floors and being instakilled by the Highwaymen.  Man, those were the days.

I'm glad to see it's still around and hopefully it gets localized (wishful thinking).

It's such irony that a series that was so completely inspired by Western RPGs (both computer and pen&paper) got such limited play in the US.

Yeah, I feel the same way about King's Bounty.

It would be great to play another Wizardry game.  I  finished Wizardry: Tale of the Forsaken Land for the first time last month, and I have to admit that it was an awesome game.  I bought it for $5 in a local video game store.  Classic old school dungeon crawler with great music and a good story also by the way.

I think the last Wizardry game to come out here was Tale of the Forsaken Land, c/o Atlus. I'm hoping they take an interest in this, but not holding my breath.


It is funny that the series is so huge in Japan when it was made in the west.

I had a few Wizardry games for my first PC I had in 1994. It was on a comp. with some other games. I remember not being to hardly play them at all, I didn't understand how to play those types of RPG's. If I remember right, I think you could die from hunger and starvation and even screw yourself over in dungeons if you missed an item earlier in the game. He-man tough.

I have a Wizardry Collection that I haven't spent much time with. Maybe I'll play some more of that.

... Wait, either I'm missing something or you think it's a natively Japanese series. If I'm interpreting your post right then, well, you're wrong; this was one of THE original WRPG series. Of course, this only serves to make it more ironic; a series that was created in America is continued in Japan, with almost all of the newer entries left unlocalized.
