With releases of Shiren: The Wanderer, Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja 2, and now Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon, 2008 is certainly shaping up to be the year of the Roguelike. Let's hope it lasts. For now though, we have Chocobo's Dungeon which is the true sequel to the PlayStation game, Chocobo's Dungeon 2.
In this spin-off of the Final Fantasy franchise, Cid and Chocobo are treasure hunters looking for the gem of Timeless power. However, they end up transported to a mysterious town where no one can recollect much of anything thanks to a bell tower that seems to erase the minds of anyone who hears its chime. It's up to Chocobo to delve into the minds of the inhabitants to restore their memories and solve the mystery of what happened there.
