I wrote about Beyond the Labyrinth all the way back in April, and just now a trailer has been released. Video and a text translation after the jump.
The video is rather brief in all its aspects, and also raises several questions. Is the girl the main character or not? And what is it she is doing exactly in an earthquake-prone labyrinth? My own interpretation is that she has a cameraman or a sort of robot as you can see her manually moving the camera angle at the 43 second mark, and her companion communicates purely in text.
Friend of mine who studies Japanese provided this translation of the text and voice in the video since my own proficiency is lackluster at best but his is infinitely superior.
[Are you calling someone…?]
“Is anyone here?”
[Wait, are you really calling someone?]
“Let’s go, come on!”
“Well then, Blastoff!”
[Like I said, where!?]
“It’s right ahead.”
“It can’t be helped if you’re worried.”
[Ah, that’s important.]
“Look! Look! The road continues from above!”
[In any case, shall we go?]
“Yep! Well then, lets go!”
(Konami logo here if you’ve lost track)
[A spacious, great, underground world.]
“Without worries, towards the future!”
[The girl of riddles in the labyrinth]
[This adventure is full of mystery]
“I can be the leader, right?”
Not much detail was given, but we know the unnamed protagonist has a really cute voice and a companion who follows her explorations in the labyrinth. I’m looking forward to this once I get a 3DS. No real release date is confirmed but it’s likely to come out this year.
