First look at Mystery Chronicle

Spike Chunsoft's remake of the PC indie game One Way Heroics.

Mystery Chronicle

Famitsu has gone up with its online preview of Mystery Chronicle: I Won’t Look Back Until I Win, Spike Chunsoft’s newly announced PlayStation 4 and PS Vita remake of the PC game One Way Heroics.

The “forced scrolling RPG” and roguelike will feature turn-based movement like Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer and randomly generated worlds, but is different in that the screen forcibly scrolls as the world is slowly swallowed up by a mysterious and dreadful light known as the “Shine Raid.” If the hero touches the light, the game is over. So while avoiding the light, the hero must battle enemies blocking his path, pick up items dropped on the map, and invade dungeons that suddenly appear.
