A labour of love

Product: Crimson Shroud
Crimson Shroud has so much love, care, and attention injected into it that it actually feels wrong to have to criticise it.
The tabletop-styled RPG is part of Level-5's Guild01 Nintendo 3DS series, and was designed by Yasumi Matsuno, the man behind incredible Japanese titles like Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy XII.
Matsuno's love for his craft shines through in Crimson Shroud, although we found ourselves enjoying the game's ambience, storytelling, and general style far more than the actual gameplay.
A strong shade of winning
Crimson Shroud is one of the most finely crafted games available on the Nintendo 3DS, though the tabletop setting may prove difficult for some to engage with
