NIS America has released new information introducing the three main characters of its upcoming dungeon RPG Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk.
Here are the details, via NIS America:
Dusk Witch Dronya
A beautiful raven-haired witch, cloaked in black robes. Dronya serves the Haltz Kingdom as a royal court witch, and is called the Dusk Witch due to her brilliant red-and-blue eyes. She has come to Refrain for the sole purpose of exploring the labyrinth beneath the town, though her true motive for doing so remains a mystery.
Dronya’s young apprentice and traveling companion. An upbeat, excitable child who is easily moved to tears and laughter, often alternating between the two. Despite her young age, Luca can perform a variety of household tasks, such as cooking, cleaning, shopping, and doing laundry.
She also personally handcrafts each puppet soldier that Dronya sends down into the labyrinth.
The Tractatus de Monstrum
A legendary cursed book that contains the player’s soul. It is said to have been scribed by the only man to uncover the secrets of the labyrinth and survive. Now, the Tractatus de Monstrum—or “Tractie,” as Luca calls it—must lead Dronya’s puppet soldiers into the labyrinth of Refrain and unearth the secrets buried within.
And here is an overview of the game:
Become the living book, Tractatus de Monstrum, and command a brigade of puppet soldiers as you navigate the twisting passageways of the labyrinth of Refrain.
When at your base, prepare for your journey by upgrading your brigade! Create new puppet soldiers, assign them different squads and formations, synthesize better equipment, take requests from townsfolk, and get assistance from Dronya in the form of Witch Petitions.
Once you’ve entered the labyrinth, be sure to search every nook and cranny as you jump over barricades, solve puzzles, and smash your way through walls to delve further and further downward in search of treasure and rare artifacts. But be careful, the more riches you obtain, the more vicious the dungeon becomes. Can you survive long enough to bring your haul back?
Fight past terrifying monsters by giving orders to your puppet brigade. Change their formation, use special skills, or call for an all-out attack! The battles you face will be challenging, so your success depends on your preparation and your strategy.
- A Massive Maze – Dive into the miasma-filled labyrinth as the Tractatus de Monstrum along with your brigade of puppet soldiers to smite monsters and uncover dark secrets.
- Fast-Paced Combat! – Strange creatures and traps of all sorts will stand in your path as you go deeper in the maze. Give orders to your army and crush them with special skills!
- Build an Undefeatable Army – Create your very own puppet soldiers, grant them a variety of different roles, and assign them to specialized squads to make your own unique brigade!
Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk is due out physically and digitally for PlayStation 4 and Switch, and for PC via Steam this fall in North America and Europe. In Japan, it is available now for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
