Cladun: This is an RPG -- known as Classic Dungeon in Japan -- is a quirky little hack and slash RPG made by the minds responsible for Disgaea. Think Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past mixed with the insane humor that NIS is pretty well known for.

Cladun has two very important things going for it that really sets it apart from the other hack and slash games. First, you’ll have complete freedom to make the main character look like whatever you want. Prinny, Mr. Destructoid, a shark, Dale North -- the possibilities are limited to your imagination. You can make up to 64 custom designed characters that can be shared with anyone online.

The final boss of the game is also customizable so you can make someone like Chad Concelmo to beat the snot out of. The cool thing about the final boss is that he scales to your strength the first time you encounter him. After which, he will become stronger and stronger than you every time you fight him again.

The second key point of Claudin is that all of the dungeons are always randomly generated and have 99 levels to explore. Thankfully, you don’t have to complete all 99 levels and can leave whenever you want. It may be fun to try to complete all 99 levels for one dungeon with three other friends. You know, for bragging rights.

I played through the first ten-minutes of Claudin and instantly fell in love with this game. The retro feel with NIS’s deranged humor had me smiling and laughing out loud before I even killed my first monster. Be sure to check out the trailer to get a real sense of what to expect.

Claudin: This is an RPG
will be out as a downloadable only title for the PSP later this Fall.
