    Girl Meets Dungeon in Beyond the Labyrinth

    An RPG planned for the 3DS that doesn't involve Zelda or Mario? Yes, Virginia, there is a tri-Ace, and they've got a little girl like you starring in their 3D dungeon crawler.

    Am I the only one getting serious ICO vibes from those screenshots?

    Takayuki Suguro read Fumito Ueda's comments about ditching the girl in Trico because you could look up her skirt, then ran straight to Konami with his idea for a new game.

    You're not the only one. I'm seen many people make the same statement. Personally, I don't think it will be "like" Ico, but it might have that kind of abstract, empty atmosphere.

    I'm very eager to see more. It looks like a pretty game, and seems very custom-tailored for the 3DS's s3D capabilities what with the labyrinth-theme going on. I've said it at other sites, but s3D is best used for games with lots of depth and/or flying objects and particle effects. And there is no environment with more depth than a long, winding hallway.

    Seriously. Amazingly, Suguro apparently understands the concept of PANTS. Or shorts. Or whatever cute little thing it is she's wearing under her dress that helpfully protects her modesty.

    I'm getting an Ico-meets-Etrian Odyssey vibe here, mixed in with a little bit of Trace Memory.

    Lordy I hope this makes it to the States.

    Nah, it's actually more like a jumper, looking at it.

    The interview in the scans is pretty definite on her being the main character, though there might be others. The initial concept started out as part relationship-sim, with the player having to guide the girl through the labyrinth, and it somehow metamorphosed into what we see here.

    The name of the game is "Beyond the Labyrinth."
    The plot sounds like the 80's movie "Labyrinth."

    The game looks good. This is a game I'll definitely keep in mind for the future.

    I hope the name and plot are the only things in this game like the Jim Hensen classic. The world isn't ready for Bowie's junk in 3d.
