NIS America reveal's game's international title as Lapis x Labyrinth

Nippon Ichi Software began streaming the first promotional video on Tuesday for its Lapis・Re・Abyss action role-playing game. The video reveals that the game is also slated for the Nintendo Switch in addition to the previously revealed PlayStation 4. The game will launch in Japan on November 29.

The game will retail for 6,980 yen (about US$63), and the digital version retails for the same price.

NIS America revealed on Wednesday that the game "will be known for the South East Asia region" as Lapis x Labyrinth. The company did not specifically state if it plans to release the game in South East Asia or in any other region outside of Japan.

NIS America describes the game:

A small village in a small kingdom has been hit with some tough financial times, thankfully they are sitting on a whole trove of treasure! Dive into the Labyrinth atop a forest that shimmers like gold in search of beaucoup bucks with your customized crew of adventurers! Using the creative stacking mechanic you can flip between up to 4 adventurers on the fly and deploy their individual attacks while keeping them all on top of your head!

Go for the glitz and glamour, strike with the blitz and hammer!

Hirokazu Itano is directing the game and designing the characters. The game will use a "DANGO" system, and will feature eight playable characters. Two of the characters include a hunter who excels at close-range 1 vs. 1 battles, and a necromancer who excels at medium- and long-range combat. Other characters includes a shielder, a maid, a gunner, a wizard, a destroyer, and a bishop. Players can create parties of four characters.
