Idea Factory International has announced that they’re bringing Death Under the Labyrinth (MeiQ no Chika si Shisu) West this Fall, albeit with a much less catchy name.

Dungeon crawling RPG MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death is officially coming West thanks to the great Vita supporters over at Idea Factory International – the release window set for this Fall, the format set as both digital and physical, and PlayStation TV support enabled. Oh, and did we mention it’ll be available in both Japanese and English? That too. 😉

Here’s the story synopsis, pulled directly from the press release;

First, the winds stopped. Then, birds vanished from the skies. Finally, the sun set… And an eternal night fell upon the world.

The reason was quickly identified. It was a story told of in legends. The world had ceased hundreds of years ago as well. But there was a legendary mage who had managed to restart it.

Thus, elders gathered capable young Machina Mages from around the world. They sent them to the legendary city: Machina City, Southern Cross.

You must restart the world, and bring an end to this eternal night. That is your mission, and your destiny. Now, go forth on your journey. Go, Estra!

Along with the story, we were also provided the title’s key features;

  • Labyrinths of Possibility! Navigate challenging maps and puzzles in this first-person
  • You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine! Pair your 3-person party with three different Guardians for a turn-based, dungeon-crawling battle system!
  • Advanced Robotics! Unique Guardian robots can be customized even further with
    different parts and crystals to enhance their abilities!
  • Elemental Enemies! Strategize attacks between your humans and Guardians and find the crack in your foe’s armor by exploiting their elemental weakness!

…and of course, some screenshots (though these are from the Japanese version of the game);

As stated, MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death is due out in North America and Europe this Fall.

Will you be picking it up?
