The long-running Thriller Dungeon sequence has taken many kinds over time, stretching all the best way again to 1993 when Chun Mushy spun the roguelike Taloon’s Nice Journey: Thriller Dungeon off of its extra conventional RPG Dragon Quest IV. Since then we’ve seen authentic characters, pokémon, and sure, chocobos take part on the dungeon-delving enjoyable.
Nicely, potential enjoyable. These roguelikes aren’t for everybody, with simple-feeling moment-to-moment gameplay paired with generally hectic quantities of problem (for those who die, you are inclined to lose all of your gadgets). The Chocobo sub-series, which began with PlayStation’s 1997 Chocobo’s Dungeon and 1998’s sequel, is much less punishing than many Thriller Dungeon video games, however western reviewers again then gave the sequence a cold reception.
Even so, the Thriller Dungeon sequence isn’t marking its 30th anniversary this yr for nothing.
It has its followers, and simply 10 years after the primary Chocobo Dungeon, Ultimate Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon for Wii met a a lot hotter reception, as did that recreation’s eventual remaster on Change and PS4. Like ‘em or hate ‘em, dungeon-delving chocobo are right here to remain. — Alexandra Corridor
