Mastiff and Nihon Falcom announced that Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure will be coming to Nintendo 3DS eShop sometime this summer. Originally released on PSP in 2007 and later ported to PC/Steam in 2015, Gurumin features a 3D fantasy world composed of colorful characters that are voiced by an impressive cast. Real-time combat, mini-games, hidden characters and a catchy soundrack are some of the featured highlighted in this magical adventure.
Mastiff has said that pricing will be “very reasonable” and release date details should be announced soon. There also might be a few exclusive features to this 3DS version over the PC version but we will learn more about this later.
Watch our stream of the opening segment of Gurumin from the PC version here:
Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure stars a strong-willed young girl named Parin, who is sent to live with her grandfather in a small mining town while her archeologist parents are off excavating an ancient ruin. No other children live in the town so Parin is surprised to find a young girl about to be attacked by an angry dog. Parin rescues the girl and learns something even more shocking- her new friend is a monster, and like all monsters, invisible to adults.
Parin is soon invited to the mysterious Monster Village, which just so happens to be hidden right behind the town. Parin has just started making monster friends when evil spirits, known as Phantoms, invade the village and ‘monsternap’ most of the inhabitants. Parin learns of the Legendary Drill, a weapon accessible only to the chosen, and powerful enough to eliminate the Phantoms. Thus begins Parin’s quest to reclaim the Legendary Drill, drive out the Phantoms and set the world right.
