Labyrinth of Zangetsu release date

Publisher PQube and developer Acquire have set a release date for the western version of Labyrinth of Zangetsu, with the game due out in just a few days. It’ll launch in both North America and Europe on April 20, 2023.

Labyrinth of Zangetsu has been available in Japan since September. PQube announced localization plans last summer with a launch target of Q1 2023.

We have some information about the game below.

Set in the Ido period, the world has blackened under the disaster of the Ink of Ruin. Conscript a team of skilled warriors to venture deep into the impure Labyrinths to conquer the Ink plaguing the land. Will you return unscathed and free the land of this stain? Dangerous yokai await you inside!

Key Features

  • Uniquely illustrated visuals in a hand drawn, jet-black ink brush stroke which is very reminiscent of traditional Japanese Calligraphy.
  • Six playable heroes pre-programmed into the game, but there is also an option to create/build your own hero with unique individual stats and abilities.
  • Frightening enemies based off traditional Japanese folklore and Yokai (ghosts, ghouls, and demons).
  • Turn based battles with various Ink Beasts in the most dangerous areas. Three “front” characters to engage and attack and three “back” characters to defend and parry.
  • Engaging narrative and overarching story to enjoy the successes of your gameplay and reflect upon your losses too.
  • Immersive and atmospheric music based off of various traditional Japanese music as you play to create a captivating story.

And here’s a trailer celebrating the release date news for Labyrinth of Zangetsu:
