Konami has released some new screenshots for Beyond the Labyrinth, its upcoming dungeon-crawler RPG. Konami will be publishing the title, with development handled by tri-Ace, the 15-year-old Tokyo studio best known in the west for its Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile series. While many have dubbed Beyond the Labyrinth “Ico for 3DS,”owing to the title's ethereal look and superficially Yorda-esque protagonist, we can’t really say that it looks like a clone of Sony’s classic.
Beyond the Labyrinth will be released in Japan before the end of the year, though no English release has been announced as yet. Here's the trailer – also in Japanese and also pretty damn lovely-looking.
