Hey PlayStation Blog. Long time, Happy New Year and all that jazz! Today I wanted to turn up the heat on our new roguelike RPG Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God for PlayStation Vita, due on PlayStation Store on 19th February, and in physical stores from 21st February.
Sorcery Saga tells the story of Pupuru and her quest to save her favourite curry restaurant from the big, bad curry chain that’s just moved into town. In order to do so, Pupuru and her always-hungry friend, Kuu, must travel to find ingredients to make the legendary curry. Along the way, Pupuru and Kuu meet many fascinating but completely bonkers folk. I personally guarantee the dialogue you have with these people will have you rolling around in stitches.
What the heck is a roguelike?!
As Pupuru, you’ll enter a dungeon and travel on a grid-like system. Attacks are turn-based, but what makes Sorcery Saga truly challenging RPG is its roguelike attributes. Meaning, if you descend into a dungeon, you lose all your items and levels. Oh, I nearly forgot, don’t be fooled by the cute monsters that resemble food ingredients — all I’ll say is don’t play with you food!
Fortunately, there are loads of ways to avoid getting put on the chopping board. You can power up by rustling up a plate of curry in the dungeon or have your trusted sidekick Kuu help out (just make sure Kuu has eaten first – you’ve been warned!).
Make your own curry!
Curry not only offers the backdrop for Sorcery Saga’s wacky storyline, it’s actually quite helpful while in dungeons. If players are able to acquire certain ingredients, Pupuru can make her own curry, which will give her temporary power-ups to battle particularly tough baddies. For instance, Dragon Curry is an incredibly spicy curry, which will have Pupuru breathing fire!
The Curry System is a great way for players to learn more about the huge choice of customisation options. There is also a vast array of equipment, costumes and items for players to get hold of and enhance, in order to become stronger. Yes, the experience can be punishing at times, but the overall feeling of reward when you succeed far outshines the short-lived sting of failure.
With a name like Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God this game will surely be the hottest title on the PlayStation Vita in February! Enjoy!
