Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God Hits PS Vita December 10

Sorcery Saga Curse of the Great Curry God, 02

Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God, which tells the tale of a young, aspiring sorceress named Pupuru, will launch for PS Vita on December 10th. Pupuru is on a quest to save her friend’s curry restaurant from the big bad curry chain that’s moved in.

With the help (or not so much help) of a cast of wacky and strange characters — including the grumpy-but-lovable creature, Kuu — Pupuru’s quest to find ingredients to make the legendary curry becomes a delectable adventure fun for just about anyone.

Despite Sorcery Saga’s quirky and cute storyline, it offers players truly challenging gameplay. Sorcery Saga is more than just heading to your local curry house and eating tasty morsels of deliciousness; it’s a turn-based RPG that allows players to move freely around a dungeon in a grid-like system. Once players encounter an enemy, they’ll be able to attack or use items or skills to fend off the onslaught of creatures. Let’s delve deeper into Sorcery Saga’s gameplay and see what this game is all about!

Sorcery Saga is a roguelike dungeon crawler. Fundamentally, roguelike gameplay gives players permanent consequences for failing or dying. In Sorcery Saga, this means that once a player falls in a dungeon, the items he/she possesses and the levels he/she have accrued through play are all gone! Players will be able to continue with the storyline, but will need to re-acquire lost items and levels. Players will need to determine their strategy before they enter a dungeon because even saving won’t help them. Luckily, Sorcery Saga offers a couple of ways to mitigate this.

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.

Let Kuu Save the Day!

If Pupuru falls and Kuu is still alive, it will save Pupuru’s equipped items. This means if Pupuru has powerful weaponry equipped, she won’t lose it as long as Kuu is alive.

My Room is Your Room!

The My Room function in Sorcery Saga allows players to store items, money, and equipment. This is particularly useful before entering dungeons since players can store unneeded or precious items. These items will be spared if a player falls in a dungeon.

Power Up Your Weaponry!

In “My Room,” players can also enhance their weapons by using acquired items throughout the game. Giving Pupuru a little boost never hurt anyone!

Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God is ready to serve on December 10th, 2013 for PS Vita. Two editions are available: a standard edition and limited edition, which includes a Kuu-shaped plate and spoon, as well as a bib featuring the little baddies of Sorcery Saga. You can pre-order now.

Why would you feel insulted that Vita is actually getting a new original full game instead of some indie title or port?

@Xlord-lossX Yes, and people like you piss me off. Go back to games like Call of Doodie.

Oh my God, I didn’t expect this to release so soon. I was expecting early 2014 at the earliest.

About the limited edition, will it be available in Canada? Neither EB Games or Amazon seem to have it in stock.

Looking forward to this one! Is there any near functionality?

This game looks great! Thanks for bringing it to the states Aksys. I’m a little worried about the roguelike gameplay though. If you die in a dungeon, you lose everything? Even upgraded weapons? Will there be a way to get them back?

    + Sanabu Washizuka on October 22nd, 2013 at 1:54 pm said:

    You’ll lose all the items you have on you in the dungeon without any way to retrieve them later. However, if your partner Kuu is kept fed and alive, your equipped items will remain with you. So make sure you keep Kuu full and satisfied!

Is the version that is being released in the US, the one that is patched/fixes?
I know the Japanese release had a lot of bugs/glitches and I believe Japan got a patch.
I’m wondering if the US version already has the fixes integrated or we should be expecting one sometime after release.

Nice original JRPG. What’s not to love.

#3 – Yes, you are the only one insulted. And you seem to be suffering from idiocy. I have no idea why a fresh, intriguing, different game could possibly insult you.

+ Gamerzlimited on October 22nd, 2013 at 2:05 pm said:

I just realized about my previous comment that this game isn’t made by NIS America. I said doodie instead of duty because it was a reference to Prinnies saying the dood instead of dude. I thought this game was made by the same people who made ZHP Unlosing Ranger. Guess I must have misread.

@23 – I don’t mind someone being insulted – what makes him/her/it an idiot is not explaining why and acting like a troll.

As for a comparison, it looks like it will be similar to most JRPG Chef based games. Recettear is set in an item shop and looks to be similar.

Great news!!! a new psvita game

btw so Kuu will helps us with the items if we die in the dungeon?, and Kuu will have a limited number of item to equip?

    + Sanabu Washizuka on October 22nd, 2013 at 3:43 pm said:

    Kuu will simply ensure that all items properly equipped on Pupuru at the time of death will remain with her afterward; no items will be equipped on Kuu itself. Hope that helps!

I’d like to know about Canada getting the LE too. ):

Don’t do this to me Aksys. Amazon won’t even ship it to Canada, and I didn’t see the game (at all) on GameStop which does ship to Canada (though it’s expensive to do so).

Also, I’m a little bummed it’s coming this year. It’s packed. January would have been a lot better for me.

+ Xlord-lossX on October 22nd, 2013 at 5:11 pm said:

@#5 You seem to have played it more than I have. Your trophies can attest to that. and “Doodie”? what are you, 10?

@#27 let me try to write my wrong. I am happy we vita owner/players are getting a new game. I am not however excited about this game at all. It does not appear to “fresh, intriguing or different” After reading the whole summary on the game it reminds me of something you’d find on the app store for an Itouch that would cost maybe $4. The 3d chibi visual style of the game is very unimpressive and uncreative.

I would like to recant my statement about being insulted. I feel that that was way overly dramatic.

But the thing that just dumbfounded me most of all, was the Limited edition bundle. What is anyone going to do with a bib, bowl and spoon? (I suppose that it is being released near christmas time you could hold onto it and gift it to a baby or something.)

I apologize for any miscommunication on my part.

+ Erza_Scarlet on October 22nd, 2013 at 6:20 pm said:

Good night Mr. Sanabu Washizuka, please don’t take wrong my comment but I think that is good that you please read me. Limited Editions are exclusive product released specially for collectors like me that like to buy this special editions of the games they love, the bad part about collector/limited editions is that they become rare after some time so it’s better to buy it on release date even if you don’t want to play the game until some months… That is the case of Muramasa: Rebirth (Another game published by Aksys), I bought the CE on release date even if I still haven’t played the game, so you guys gain a potential customer that paid full price just because the CE was awesome…. But when you release this “lame” (sorry for my expression) Limited Editions you just lose that potential customers… I won’t pay 10 US just for some plastic kitchen tools and since I won’t buy it on release date I will wait for it to drop price and when I have time to play the game. So please next time think a little and release more appealing LE/CE, not just some plastic things, you just lose some potential customers like me.

Thanks.

+ RenderMonk on October 22nd, 2013 at 10:06 pm said:

Definitely glad to see a new JRPG making it’s way stateside, and to the Vita to boot!! I get the “roguelike” gameplay where you only make it so far if, and then loose it all, and try to get father next time….kinda like spelunky (in terms of what happens when you die). But what’s the end game goal? Usually with RPG’s, all the effort and time it takes to level up, and progress through the game is what makes it so satisfying. My worry is, after getting to say floor 13, and dying, people might not want to invest that much time in getting back to that level of progression. So I guess I’m asking, is the game “beatable”? Is there an end to make it to? Or are there leaderboards for who got the farthest? What’s the incentive to keep playing.

Still very pleased the game is coming to the states/Vita. I’ll most likely be getting it, just curious about some of the questions mentioned. Thanks for your time.

@Xlord-lossX Reading your comment obviously means you did not read my 2nd comment. I said doodie on purpose because I thought this game was published by NIS America, but I misread and was published by Aksys. I think you have bad taste in gaming if you think this game isn’t “fresh, intriguing or different.” Don’t even play games like Ni No Kuni or Hyperdimension Neptunia then and go back to your poor taste of games like Call of Duty. You’re the true 10 year old who loves to shout in the microphone when you lose. Take a chill pill, dood.

@Sanabu Washizuka Yes A REAL NEW GAME AND NOT SOME INDIE GAME! I’m sorry but I don’t understand why the ps vita has so little real full game but alot of cheap indie game that you can beat in a minute. To help the ps vita sell we need more real games like this pls. But any I love this game it looks like Z.H.P from the Psp and I look forward to picking this and any other full game you guys bring over here for us USA PsVITA owners. LONG LIVE GAMING!
