Japanese video game studio Level-5, best known for the Professor Layton game series, has released Crimson Shroud for the Nintendo 3DS. Available now via the Nintendo eShop, Crimson Shroud is a “bold reimagining” of classic table top RPGs.
Crimson Shroud was created by Yasumi Matsuno, a celebrated game designer whose catalog of work includes Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, and Tactics Ogre. Crimson Shroud was previously released only in Japan as part of GUILD01, a multi-game pack for the 3DS featuring titles from some of Japane’s most renowned game designers.
“When it comes to creating intricate, compelling and fun role-playing experiences, it’s hard to find anyone more respected than Yasumi Matsuno,” said Akihiro Hino, President and CEO of LEVEL-5. “Crimson Shroud serves to continue this amazing legacy of genre-defining games. Fans of some of Matsuno’s most beloved titles will feel instantly at home with Crimson Shroud’s new take on dice-based game play and unique high fantasy storyline.”
Crimson Shroud is currently available in the Nintendo eShop for $7.99.
