A new ESRB rating for Labyrinth of Zangetsu was published this week, suggesting a western release is planned.
The new Labyrinth of Zangetsu ESRB rating comes from publisher PQube, who tend to localize lots of these third-party Japanese games.
Here’s the ESRB summary:
This is an action-adventure game in which players lead characters on a quest to stop a blight across ancient Japan. Players explore dungeon-like environments and battle stylized creatures (e.g., demons, ink-stained creatures, shadows) in turn-based combat. Players choose actions from a menu (e.g., attack, parry, magic) to battle enemies; attacks are accompanied by sword slashes and screen-shaking effects. Characters sometimes emit splashes of black liquid/ink when hit; one hand-drawn sequence depicts black splatters around bodies, and a hand smeared with black liquid. The word “damn” appears in the game.
Labyrinth of Zangetsu is set to release across Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on September 29th in Japan.
