Renowned Japanese videogame development studio LEVEL-5, best known for their critically acclaimed Professor Layton videogame series, have today released Crimson Shroud. A bold re-imagining of classic table top role-playing games (RPGs), Crimson Shroud is now available in both North America and Europe.
Crimson Shroud was created by celebrated game designer, Yasumi Matsuno, whose catalogue of works include industry cornerstones such as 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 Nintendo 3DS featuring titles from some of Japan’s most renowned videogame designers. Two additional titles from GUILD01 – Liberation Maiden and Aero Porter – recently debuted in North America and Europe, and are currently available via the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.
“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.”
