“Record of Lodoss War” Celebrates 30th Anniversary with Side-Scrolling Action Video Game

 

2018 marks the 30th anniversary of Record of Lodoss War, and Kadokawa has big plans to celebrate the fantasy light novel series, including a brand new novel written by Ryo Mizuno and illustrated by Hidari, a special 30th anniversary re-release of the Record of Lodoss War tabletop role-playing game, and a side-scrolling action video game developed by team ladybug.

 

 

The new Record of Lodoss War novel is scheduled to be released in Japan next winter, while the tabletop RPG will be released in Japan next fall. The release date and release platforms for team ladybug’s video game have not yet been revealed, although the behind-the-scenes video (above) indicates that the game is being developed in a retro style drawing heavy inspiration from games such as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
