Quite a bit of news has been turning up about the rekindling of the Wizardry franchise in Japan, and now Siliconera has dug a little further into the specifics while pointing out the launch of an official website for the PS3-exclusive Wizardry: Dungeon of Imprisoned Souls and another website for a Nintendo DS-exclusive title called Wizardry: Pledge of Life.
Acquire also picked up the rights to Wizardry. Yeah, the classic PC RPG series. While mostly forgotten in the West, Wizardry has a cult following in Japan.
Acquire understands this and are commissioning Wizardry: Torawareshi Damashii no Meikyou (Wizardry: Dungeon of Imprisoned Souls) for the PlayStation 3.
No announcements have been made about a Western release, but Atlus USA worked on a Wizardry game, deal with Acquire, and are aggressively pursuing downloadable games.
