Aksys bringing curry-making RPG Holy Sorcery Story to North America this year

New, 5 comments

Publisher Akysus will localize Compile Heart's role-playing game Holy Sorcery Story (Sei Madou Monogatari) for release on PlayStation Vita in North America, the company announced at Anime Expo 2013 this weekend.

The dungeon crawler, from the developers of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, is slated to launch later this year under the title Sorcery Saga: The Curse of the Great Curry God. Players will control protagonist Pupuru, a suspended student of the Magic Academy, on her travels through the world's various dungeons. Her journey is spurred by an old book of magical curry recipes, and she decides to gather the required ingredients to make curry good enough to save her local curry restaurant.

The game originally launched in Japan in March. Developer Compile Heart showed the title, along with Vita card battler Monster Monpiece, at Game Connection in San Francisco shortly before its Japanese launch.

Aksys Games specializes in localization Japanese video games for a western audience. Most recently the company has brought interactive visual novel Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi and Murasama: Rebirth.
