First screenshots from Yasumi Matsuno’s Crimson Shroud, the tabletop RPG-styled game that will be included in Level-5’s upcoming 3DS omnibus Guild01.
Matsuno, for those unfamiliar with the name, is the bloke behind landmark SRPGs like Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy Tactics. NeoGAF mod Duckroll translated game details for Crimson Shroud from the latest Famitsu:
“The game is supposed to simulate a tabletop RPG experience where there is a game master guiding the player through a campaign, and you use dice rolls to determine success or failure for your actions. The bottom screen depicts either the menu, or a map, or the die which are used to roll for actions.
Most story events on the top screen will be narrated by full screen text paragraphs overlaid on the 3D events on the screen. There is a battle screen which shows three party members against a giant minotaur, and it seems to be turn based (there is text saying ‘The minotaur attacks!’), but they’re keeping the battle system under wraps for now.”
You can see a few more screenshots and some artwork for Crimson Shroud at this Japanese page.
