PQube and Acquire are thrilled to announce that 'Labyrinth of Zangetsu,' a dungeon crawler RPG inspired by Japanese art and folklore is set for launch on 20th April 2023 for Steam, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. 

Set in the moonlit city of Ido, the world has been blackened by the devastating 'Ink of Ruin'. It is up to you to conscript a team of warriors and venture deep into the labyrinths to conquer and sanctify the land. But beware... terrifying Yokai beasts & monsters based on traditional Japanese folklore stand in your way, ready to challenge your skills and strategy at every turn. 

  • Stunning Japanese-Inspired Ink-Brush Art Style: The game's artwork is a beautiful blend of traditional Japanese art and modern design that illustrates itself in as you move through environments.
  • Clash With Terrifying Yokai Beasts: As you plunge deeper into winding labyrinths the line between reality and nightmare becomes blurred. The creatures you will encounter in Labyrinth of Zangetsu are not merely monsters, but entities steeped in traditional Japanese folklore and legend, whose very presence will fill players with an unshakeable sense of dread...
  • Create & Customise Your Own Conscripts: The ink-ruined land of Ido is a place where only the strongest and most adaptable can hope to survive. To stand any chance against these malevolent spirits, players must customise their hero to the fullest extent, tailoring every stat and ability to their specific needs. 
  • Intense Strategic Turn-Based Battle System: Structure your team strategically with the unique 'front & back' mechanic; positioning your strongest conscripts at the front for powerful attacks, and your more defence allies in the back to help defend against unrelenting attacks! 
  • Ink Your Path In a Spiralling Narrative: Uncover the mysteries of the game's world and story as you progress through the game, completing side quests and uncovering hidden lore. 
  • Immersive and atmospheric soundtrack: An atmospheric soundtrack based on traditional Japanese music, adding an extra layer of authenticity and intrigue to the game's world.
