    I like the music and art.

    This looked a bit like Lightning to me.

    Must be digital only, step, if only it were released on disc.

    Poor Sony

      Yeah, I mean it’s not as if EXP didn’t give Vita Demon Gaze or anything like that :p

      EDIT: Just to add to this, they also got Cross Blood: Infinity on Vita last year as well which just got a new patch update recently.

      How this is connected to Sony?

        Probably just means “Poor Sony” since they aren’t getting it. They should have said “Poor Nintendo” too in that case, lol.

    Sounds like a flop. But this makes it easier for fan translation.

      Not enough interest for a fan translation. EXP generally doesn’t make very popular games. Hell, even their Generation Xth series hasn’t been fan translated (not to my knowledge anyway) and that’s the most popular thing they’ve done.

    Looks like it’s still following the system in 円卓の生徒 (Students of Round) for the most part. I don’t have a 360 any more, so it looks like I’ll have to keep my eye out for when it hits PC. A more appropriate title for the game is actually:

    Ken no Machi no Ihoujin: Stranger in Alda

    This was actually announced back in 2012, but this teaser is the first we’ve actually seen of the game.

      i actually this the artstyle reminds me of Ken no Machi no Ihoujin: The Stranger in Alda



      i can’t believe the game is not out yet?? been almost 2 years now!!!

      seems Experience has been doing alot of first person dungeon crawler games.

      Demon Gaze, Labyrinth Cross Blood Infinity, Ken no Machi no Ihoujin: The Stranger in Alda, Entaku no Seito: Students of Round,

      Demon Gaze, Labyrinth Cross Blood Infinity, is already on vita.

      so i expect this and Entaku no Seito: Students of Round to be ported as well.

      wonder what happened to Students of Round??

      also RIP CyberFront :(

      shame they removed all the videos in their youtube channel as well :(

        What do you mean “what happened to Students of Round??” anyway? The game started on PC a few years ago, was ported to 360, then was ported to PSP a couple of years ago (it was their last PSP game before moving onto Vita with Demon Gaze).


        Also, it’s not surprising to see EXP releasing another dungeon RPG, you know… Since that’s their specialty, lol. What would you expect them to release? It’s like .5pb and VN games. Sure, they made a fighting game, but eh… They mostly focus on VN stuff.

        Personally though, while I am interested in this… I’m more concerned with what’s happening to Operation Abyss for Vita since it was supposed to be out already, but their publisher, Cyberfront, went out of business, so now the date is just 2014 TBA (well, the main website actually says ‘Spring’, but we’ll see), basically.

          i haven’t heard about it for awhile aside from the PSP game.

          no sequel?

          yeah Cyberfron is no longer here, which is ashamed since i saw on their page and that their one of the few companies who localizes western games to Japan.

          The Witcher 2 for example

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Right, no sequel. I’m not really sure why there would be one though.

    is that a rabbit with horns wielding an’ Executioner’s axe?

    the characters at 1:10 should be animated at 60 frames per second hand drawn imo

      You should be animated at 60 frames per second and hand drawn, imo.
