- Contents of the beta version, which was deployed in March 2022, including the ability to change equipment during battle and various bug fixes.
Get the details below.
■ DLC “The Absence of Misericordia” and “Prisoners of the Battles” Announced!
Thanks to the support from our enthusiastic users since the start of early access, we have officially decided to develop the following additional scenario download contents.
- “The Absence of Misericordia”
- “Prisoners of the Battles”
Both scenarios were originally developed by the same developer in 2005, and each has a sufficient volume of content. The official scenarios of subsequent downloadable contents will be available in Japanese and English from the time of release.
In addition to the above two scenarios, we are also planning a variety of additional downloadable contents to let everyone enjoy the game even more. We will continue to brush up the main game with functional improvements based on feedback until the official release. We appreciate your continued support.
■ New Scenario Editor to Be Online!
We are pleased to announce that the scenario editor, which was a stand-alone application in 2006, is being developed as an online web service (online scenario editor), rather than a local application. It will be available at no additional cost to those who have purchased the game. The beta version is scheduled to launch by the end of 2022.
We are working hard to create the editor that will not only have the features of the 2006 version, but also add features that will make labyrinth creation even easier. We will keep you updated on the progress of the development through our official Twitter and other means.
■ Roadmap from 2022 to 2023
The roadmap is as follows: in 2022, we will focus on launching the online scenario editor (beta version) and adding various bug fixes, features, etc. In Q1 of 2023, we will launch the first downloadable content, and in Q2, we will roll out the second DLC and release the official version of both the main game and the editor.
As for the roadmap, this is a description of major events that can be made public today, and we will continue to improve the game and fix bugs in between each event as needed. We will continue to develop the game to meet the expectations of many fans of the game. We are also considering various developments so that you can enjoy the game for a long time even after the official release.
