at NIS America, Inc has announced today alongside a video trailer that Cladun: This is an RPG for PSP is coming to PSN on September 21, 2010.
To quote: Today, I am excited to talk about Cladun: This is an RPG!
... like we have to make sure you know it is an RPG... Hahaha! Anyway, as the subtitle states, it is an RPG, and it is also a classic dungeon crawler game.
There are nine characters, and each one of them can be played as a main character. Cladun's key gameplay focus is team-work. Or, in other words, the Magic Circle. Let's take a look at the Magic Circle here...
For this Magic Circle, the character in the center is the main character, Pudding. In a dungeon, you will see only Pudding whacking and slashing enemies, but actually you have all the other characters protecting you and fighting with you. There are more than 10 Magic Circles for each character.
Each Magic Circle has different strengths and weaknesses, so depending on what kind of dungeon you are about to go in, you will want to take a moment and see which Magic Circle you should be using.
Oh! So you see all these gemstones on the Magic Circle, right? These gemstones have specific attributes, for example, "DEF +3," "ATK +5," "SP +25" and so on. Each Magic Circle has different slots for those gemstones, so you want to take a close look at what they offer as well.
Below is another example of the Magic Circle. There are tons of options and choices, so take your time and explore the infinite possibilities! Oh, I cannot forget to mention there are different classes for characters, so depending on your character class, your magic skills, attributes and growth rate will differ. Lots to consider and strategize with!
I also want to talk about dungeons in Cladun. Each dungeon is randomly generated, so even if you go back to the same dungeon, you'll have a different map every time. So there is no "memorizing" the map! Also, each dungeon has different types of traps and enemies.
For example, when you go in a dungeon with fire element traps and enemies, you might want to choose a character and Magic Circle with fire-resistance attributes on them, so you will be well prepared for it! Shall we take a look at different types of dungeons here?
Also, I want to mention that Cladun comes with a multiplayer mode using the ad-hoc WiFi feature! You can play Cladun with up to four players. So hype up your friends about Cladun, and get Cladun on 9/21 together! :-)
Another cool feature in Cladun is that you can create your own characters and play as them. If you are not so into creating new characters, no worries, you can just edit the given characters however you like to!
Prinny, dood! Yeah, we had to have him, right? Also, here is what I created. It is "Fish Man"! Please don't ask how it is "fish"... anyway... Have fun with "Pixel Editor" to create your own!
Thank you very much for reading my post once again. It is always fun to visit you all here! I will try to respond to your comments as soon as possible! Thank you guys! Check out more about Cladun on our official Cladun website
