Elminage Gothic’s upcoming Steam release marks the first time the title is available outside Japan.
Ghostlight was thrilled to reveal today that their classic old school dungeon crawler, Elminage Gothic, makes its way to Steam on September 18, 2014. The game will be available at the regular price of $9.99, though those who want to go ahead and purchase the title early will be able to do so starting on September 11, 2014.
Early adopters will be able to receive a 20% discount off the title, as well as obtain the official soundtrack and a 118 page digital art book and monster guide. This book is called Bestiarum Vocabulum, and is only available during the pre-purchase period. Ghostlight wished to make it clear that the 20% discount will continue until September 25, one week after the title launches. The soundtrack and Bestiarum Vocabulum, they reiterate, will only be available during the pre-purchase period of Elminage Gothic.
This Steam release marks the very first time that Elminage Gothic has been translated to English and released outside of Japan. The game features over 80 hours of dungeon crawling gameplay. During your journey in the dungeons, you will encounter hundreds of monsters, demons, and creatures to defeat. In addition, you will have a variety of character classes, and the classic THACO system returns. Overall, Elminage Gothic is sure to appeal to fans of old school titles.
Elminage Gothic will have a bit of new content as well, of course. This content comes in the form of eight Steam trading cards and various Steam achievements. It also boasts an improved user interface as well as higher resolution art to mark the title’s jump to PC.
