RPG Classic “Wizardry” comes back on NDS for Amazon exlusive release
The popularity of RPG classic Wizardry in Japan has led to many original sequels, spinoffs and ports. Another new title, Wizardry - Inochi no Kusabi-(lit. Wizardry: Wedge of Life) is coming out today on November 19, 2009 for Nintendo DS.
Although it isn't a numbered title, the game adopts the basic system and atmosphere of classic titles such as the original Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord, Wizardry II: The Knight of Diamonds, Wizardry III: Legacy of Llylgamyn and Wizardry V: Heart of the Maelstrom which still have loyal fans, so it's more like a DS port of the combined games with improved graphic and effects, rather than a spinoff.

Here are some screenshots.
Ishtar's pub where you can recruit new members to your party. The player character(top left) is named Kai.
Good old dungeon.
With deadly traps.
And other interesting features.
"Boukensha no Yado" (Adventurer's Inn) where you can rest.
Quopati Temple. When failed to be resurrected, the characters can be lost forever, just like in classic Wizardry games.
You can watch a trailer on the official website (click "Special" on bottom right and then click "Promotion Movie").
And you can also download some beautiful wall papers from the "Special" menu. The monsters (designed by Jun Suemi) look much more sinister than their 8-bit counterpart.
