Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Action RPG Announced; Platforms Unknown for Now

5pb. announces Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Daro ka: Infinite Combate, and this time it's an action RPG.

June 30, 2017

Today Japanese developers .5pb announced Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Daro ka: Infinite Combate. 

The game is an adaptation of the popular Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Daro ka manga, light novel, and anime series (known in the west as Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?), and will be a “dungeon exploration action RPG.” That is quite a departure from 5pb.’s usual portfolio, since the developer normally works on visual novels and adventure games.

At the moment, platforms have not been announced, but a teaser trailer has been released, showing familiar protagonists Bell Cranel and Aiz Wallenstein, while everyone’s favorite goddess Hestia doesn’t show up for now. 


The original story started as a light novel in 2013, expanding to a popular manga and to an anime series in 2015. It’s about a young adventurer struggling to make a name for himself (and for his patron goddess Hestia) as a dungeon explorer, while at the same time he tries to conquer the heart of Aiz, who is one of the most famous and skilled adventurers in the city.

Of course there are plenty of other waifus, as it’s your Japanese harem story through and through.

At the moment, nothing else is known, including platforms, that have not been announced. This par for the course for 5pb. as they normally tend to disclose platforms a while after the initial announcement.
