The Wizardry series, a PC role-playing staple and Game Boy Color frequenter,
has now been granted a Game Boy Advance incarnation.
Performing double-duty, publisher/developer Media Rings has announced Wizardry Summoner,
a 1-2 player GBA exclusive with the fast approaching release date of December 21, 2001 in Japan.
The title stems away from its predecessors, landing players in a 3D labyrinthine quest for the Forbidden Book. The backstory
finds the great
king of the country of Ossakaputisu offering a reward for the return of the mythical relic. Many travellers
have come from all over the world in attempt to navigate the labyrinth and return the treasure--but none have returned.
Gameplay features a random maze generator, where each level is entirely different, even on replay. Battles are handled
traditionally, menu- and number-based. It is still unknown whether or not there will be a North American port.
