If you’ve never played Yasumi Matsuno‘s, Vagrant Story for the Playstation, then you’ve missed yourself a great RPG with some of the most amazing fight mechanics I’ve ever experienced. So, I’m pretty excited to find out that Matsuno is bringing the world another great game called Crimson Shroud.

Here’s the official synopsis:

LEVEL-5 and Yasumi Matsuno have brought together the industry’s most venerated creators in the world of RPGs to take up the challenge and lend their support to the production of CRIMSON SHROUD. A tribute to the table-top RPG, crucial decisions hinge on the roll of a die. Players roll dice in real time and chain skills together to earn bonus dice of greater and greater face value. Use your dice strategically though, or your foes may yet get the best of you! Follow the tale of a young “Chaser” named Giauque, as he and his team find themselves drawn into the mystery of the Original Gift, the Crimson Shroud. A bold new adventure awaits!


  • A brand new story from veteran creator, Yasumi Matsuno
  • Roll dice to make crucial choices that alter your fate
  • A classic RPG infused with modern elegance

The game is due out December 13 for 3DS.
