Game launched for PC, iOS, Android devices on August 24
The official English Twitter account for developer Team Caravan’s Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Battle Chronicle (Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka Battle Chronicle) battle action role-playing game confirmed on Monday that the game is in development for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
The game was originally slated to launch in 80 countries simultaneously including Japan on May 23 but launched on August 24 after a delay. It is now available for PC, iOS, and Android devices.
The game held a closed beta test from March 16 to March 22. The band sajou no hana performs the game’s theme song “Mettle Link” (song title romanization not confirmed).
The game is part of the 10th anniversary celebration of Fujino Ōmori and Suzuhito Yasuda‘s original Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka novel series. The game is free to play with optional in-game purchases. The game allows players to experience the franchise‘s story and its battles again with familiar characters such as Bell and Hestia in “anime-like 3D graphics.” The anime’s cast members are reprising their roles.
Players can assemble their own party with various training elements such as “adventurer,” “assist,” and “scene cards,” and then embark on adventures. There are battle royales where every other character is a foe, as well as autoplay battles where organization is key.
A separate smartphone role-playing game from South Korean game developer Neowiz and Japanese social networking platform Gree Entertainment is in the works for the franchise. Neowiz is developing the game, and is distributing the game worldwide except in mainland China. Gree Entertainment is credited for game planning.
Update: Aiming Inc. confirmed in a press release that the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 releases are slated for next year.
