Beyond the Labyrinth is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Beyond the Labyrinth can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
Beyond the Labyrinth offers an unusual role play experience on the 3DS. But whether its shades of Ico and Colossus make it to these shores is still uncertain. That Japanese 3DS is starting to look tempting.
There are plenty of DS and 3DS games that don't see the light of day outside Japan, but not that many I really miss. Beyond the Labyrinth joins Pandora's Tower in our list of Japanese role play games I'd dearly like to see released worldwide.
