Coven and Labyrinth of Galleria Structure Detailed, New Images
Nippon Ichi Software provided a new overview for Coven and Labyrinth of Galleria following the recent reveal of the game’s new release date in Japan. The game is set around Galleria Palace, an estate built in a remote area that is said to have a labyrinth below it filled with mysterious treasures. Madam Malta and her assistant Eureka travel to the estate to investigate the labyrinth, and summon the player’s “soul” into the magical Necrolantern so they can search for the treasures within.
Humans cannot enter the labyrinth and survive, so players lead a team of puppet soldiers in order to fight against the monsters dwelling inside. The Necrolantern has specials abilities to unlock new paths, such as destroying certain walls or traversing under water. Players are able to create new puppet soldiers as long as they have enough materials, and can choose its name, appearance, and growth trait. There are five slots available in the party, but each slot can be filled by up to three soldiers acting together in a coven.
Eureka acts as the Necrolantern’s holder above ground, and is a kind-hearted girl who got the role as Madam Malta’s assistant after answering an advertisement. Madam Malta is skilled in necromancy and alchemy, which allows her to create the puppet soldiers and summon the player to Necrolantern. The two are joined by Madam Malta’s granddaughter Perico, who is generally silent but loves cats.
Nippon Ichi Software also detailed four of the game’s facets, or classes. The Wonder Corsair wields a sword and is a good all-round fighter. The Shinomashira is a master of martial arts and hammers, and works best when fighting in a group. The Theatrical Star is a support-based class, able to work well with allies and attack from the back using its bell. Finally, the Famyu Seeker is the only cat facet, and due to being small is not particularly powerful but able to support the team with its agility.
Coven and Labyrinth of Galleria is a follow-up to Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk, which was released in Japan as Coven and Labyrinth of Refrain, and features a brand new cast. The game will launch in Japan on November 26, 2020, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
