Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included a spread on the upcoming rogue-like RPG Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san: Yukemuri Meikyuu (Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs: Hot Water Labyrinth).
If the same sounds familiar, it’s because the game is inspired by the anime and manga series Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san (Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs).
The article included new images and new information on gameplay.
First of all, we get to see part of the cast of the anime/manga, that will appear in the game. Beside Yuuna herself, we get Sagiri, Yaya, Nonko, and Oboro.
Not unsurprisingly, the story is triggered by one of the many artifacts that are hidden in the Yuragi inn’s storage room. Not only all the characters will be fully voiced by their original actresses, but the story will be a new one that did not appear in the anime and manga.
We’ll also see glimpse’s of the heroines that may show new aspects of their personality, and fanservice aplenty, which should not surprise anyone.
While the basic gameplay involves dungeon exploration, there will be scenes in which the tired heroines will enter the hot springs to mend their weariness.
Many Yokai will appear in the dungeons to hinder Yuuna’s advance and the dungeons themselves will change every time you enter them. The aim is to find the stair that lead to the next floor and aim to the top.
In the hot springs, the player can find timed minigames, and I’m sure the images below are pretty self-explanatory on what they do.
It’s possible to freely change costumes during gameplay, and you can even find stores to purchase items useful for exploration and sell those you don’t need.
You can check out all the screenshots in the gallery, keeping in mind that they’re from a magazine’s scans, so the quality is not perfect.
The game will release in Japan for PS4 on November 15th. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the first direct-feed screenshots.
