NIS America brings Labyrinth of Galleria: The Moon Society to the west in early 2023 for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC
NIS America has announced that they are releasing Labyrinth of Galleria: The Moon Society to the PlayStation 5, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam) to the west in early 2023. It is the sequel to Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk.
In Galleria's initial announcement back in March 2019, Nippon Ichi Software described that the game is more of a "successor" rather than a direct sequel to Refrain. Therefore, it isn't mandatory to play Refrain to enjoy what Galleria has to offer. Emi Evans, of NieR series fame, returns to perform a vocal theme in the game, just like in Refrain.
The road to Galleria's release, even in Japan, has been rocky over the years. It was set to release in July 2019 over there at first, but was met with a delay that pushed it back to spring 2020; later, Galleria encountered a second delay that further pushed it back to an undecided date. NIS reemerged with news of Galleria's existence in July 2020 and announced that it would release in Japan on November 26, 2020 - which it finally did for the PS4 and PS Vita. It was later released for the Switch in Japan on November 11, 2021.
James Galizio wrote his impressions for it in February 2021 explaining his love for Galleria and how frustrating it was that he couldn't talk about it because of the many surprises it hides.
NIS America has begun accepting pre-orders for Galleria's Limited Edition from their online store for the PS5, PS4, and Switch releases. It includes the game, a hardcover artbook, a 2-disc original soundtrack, the Dungeon Divers card game with play mat, and a collector's box.
Check out the western announcement trailer for Labyrinth of Galleria: The Moon Society down below, along with a brief description and some screenshots. All the screenshots are still in Japanese and under development.
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!
