Aksys Games to release dungeon RPG Mon-Yu for Nintendo Switch and PC in Early 2023​

Aksys has announced during its All Aksys 2022 stream that dungeon crawler RPG Mon-Yu will launch in the West in Early 2023 for Nintendo Switch and PC.

Developed by Experience (Undernauts Labyrinth of Yomi, Stranger of Sword City, Demon Gaze) Mon-Yu is a DRPG which released last Summer in Japan. The game features character designs by Mota and monster designs by Akifumi Yamamoto, who both worked on 2009 Japanese-only DS RPG 7th Dragon.

Like traditional DRPGs, the party is player-created from a set of classes. According to details shared in a live stream around the Japanese launch, Mon-Yu is separated into floors, with each having a boss creature to defeat. In order to defeat them, strategy and skill is emphasized over levels and grinding.

The game's final English title is still to-be-determined, but its Japanese title is Monster wo Taoshite Tsuyoi Ken ya Yoroi wo Te ni Shinasai. Yuusha Tai ga Maou wo Taosu Sono Hi wo Shinjiteimasu, which literally translates to Defeat Monsters to Get Strong Swords and Armor. We Believe in the Day the Heroes will Defeat the Demon Lord, according to Gematsu.

We've included a Japanese version gameplay trailer below, alongside Aksys' description.

A first-person, turn-based dungeon crawler from Experience Inc. in the tradition of the original Wizardry. Create your own characters to defeat the seven demon kings. Form your team, clear the dungeons, defeat the monsters, and claim victory.

2023? To translate a dungeon crawler? OK, I guess they're taking their time...

Visuals are a nicely colorful style instead of the usual dark-dark theme or the overwrought emo designs common in dungeon crawlers, so that's fun; it's also romantic to see that "Doom Engine" style of block layout/movement in the dungeon done with some attractive accessorizing. Good luck to them.
