Cladun: This Is An RPG Sequel Set To Launch In Japan

Cladun: This is an RPG was fun. It was old-fashioned, good-humored role-playing entertainment.

And if that resonated with you, here's good news: according to Siliconera citing the latest Dengeki issue, the sequel will be launching in Japan next year. Known as Classic Dungeon in the Land of the Rising Sun, the follow-up effort will release on March 24; we don't yet have any word on whether or not it'll come to the US. Hopefully, sales of the original were high enough to warrant the arrival of Cladun 2, which was praised by those seeking a nostalgic RPG experience. Right now, all we know is that the sequel should boast "new weapons, jobs, and spells," but that's fine by us. Although we've lost much of the old JRPG style on home consoles, it seems many developers are perfectly willing to keep our memories alive and well via portable platforms. The PSP and DS have scores of solid old-school RPGs, as many owners will tell you.

We'll let you know if and when Cladun 2 lands a North American launch date. In the meantime, you might want to consider playing the first game; it's designed specifically for the veteran RPG lover.

I have Cladun but i havent gotten to it yet. I like that a few devs are still making traditional RPGs.

I have never heard of Cladun. But i will have to check it out sometime.

If you start playing it let me know what you think about it. I am glad they are making traditional ones RPG's.

They have good RPG's, you might like some of the ones they have, you never know something might come up that will interest you.

Don't just pass up on them because they are Japanese RPG's.

Great Review! It's always good to have a breath of fresh air in the world of rpg's. Because just like fps's, the genre can become over saturated and unoriginal very quickly. And as fans, we can always rely on the final fantasy's and such. But to get a fun and humorous rpg to enjoy is nice. Though I have not played it yet, this review is enough to set me on the right track. Being a big fan of 2d games, I think this will be good. I love my ps3 and its advance graphical capabilties. But once and a while, I just like to kick back and enjoy the casual 2d fighter/shooter/adventure/rpg.

How can you actually LIKE these games...I just don't get it. I grew up with pokemon but it seemed awesome back then (6 years old), now I'm older I can see how utter rubbish it was/is. Seriously, whats the deal?

Because most of the RPG's of today suck, back in the day RPG's were a blast to play, they changed the formula so much of the genre it doesn't feel like a traditional one that many people have loved to play.

You had to be born when those RPG's came out to understand than what words can say about them now a days.

Old School JRPG ftw!!! It takes a lot, imho, for a non-turn-based RPG to be good, challenging fun. I'll always prefer attacking from a menu to mashing buttons when it comes to them.
