It Felt Cheap at First, But Demon Gaze Is a Solid Vita RPG

Toshi Nakamura: "What the hell is Demon Gaze?" was my first response when I heard about this new game for the PS Vita from Kadokawa Games. The game was released on January 24th in Japan under the genre of "dungeon RPG," and almost immediately sold like crazy. Well… relatively crazy. It is a Vita game after all, and there aren't as many of those in circulation compared to the 3DS or the PSP. In its first week out, Demon Gaze sold 25,793 copies, according to Weekly Famitsu. Pretty impressive considering the initial lot was only 25,000 units. Game retailer Sofmap even tweeted that their restock quickly sold out much to the surprise of the developer spokesperson. As a Vita owner, I had to find out what the hubbub was all about.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm happy the game is selling well for them and the Development team that made Monster Monpiece.

Kinda funny that that one video (you know the one!) had over a million view, yet the actual strategy mechanics are solid.

I kinda knew that by looking at news coming out, but it's great that it's been confirmed by an English speaking person on a gaming blog.

If this is localized, I'll pick it up.

Between Wizardry, and Shining: The Holy Ark I'm quite a fan of the genre.

Demons gaze should be localized and Sony should help, i mean the Vita needs game like this, a solid FP DC is always welcome.

I'm seeing euphemisms for "mediocre" and "wouldn't be worth a second glance if it had any real competition" all over the place.
