Both North America and Europe finally get release dates for Cellar Door Games’ upcoming Rogue Legacy.
Ported to PlayStation by Abstraction Games and originally developed by Cellar Door Games, Rogue Legacy is a roguelike with a twist. In the interest of clarity, here’s the game’s brief explanation from the PlayStation Blog;
“It’s a rogue-lite game where you must conquer a magical castle which is constantly changing. Every time you die, your children succeed you. Each child has his or her own unique genetic traits, so one child might be a near sighted wizard, and another could be a flatulent ninja. So every play through is unique, right from the get-go.
As an added bonus, all the money you earn is passed down to your children, giving each generation a leg up on the last. And you’ll need every edge you can get, because this game is hard!”
Including three-way cross-buy, cross-save, a multitude of languages, a glorious Platinum trophy, all the content from the original and a completely PSVita-centric control scheme (to avoid any issues with a lack of buttons), Rogue Legacy is due out July 29th in North America and July 30th in Europe.
