Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk (Switch) comes out on September 18th in North America, September 21st in Europe, and September 27th in Japan.
Today, Wired Productions and Caged Element shared some more details about the game, revealing a new game mode known as “Carkour”. It offers no less than 19 maps (18 Point-to-Point, and a final, “open” map), where you have to master a series of increasingly mind-bending courses, with many jumps, twists, and collectibles.
There’s various difficulty levels for the maps, offering different types of challenges:
- Easy (Airtime, Speed, Squiggly, Tubes, Upsy Downsy)
- Normal (Live Jump, Scoops, Slide)
- Hard (Angles, Endurance, Rainbow Road)
- Nightmare (Half Tubes, Loop Gap)
There’s something for players of all skills, and are perfect for playrs who want to concentrate on fine-tuning their timing, speed, and spatial awareness before heading back into Campaign mode, or one of the multiplayer modes.
Here’s the latest trailer for the game, showcasing Carkour mode:

Bad news for players who were hoping to play Steins;Gate Elite in English this year: Spike-Chunsoft US has announced that the western release has been delayed to early 2019. Considering the game was already delayed from Spring to September in Japan, it’s no wonder Europe and North America would also be impacted.
But Spike-Chunsoft US did have some good news for players: the 8-bit game, offered as early purchase bonus in Japan, will also be available in Europe and North America.
Also, 5pb. in Japan has shared some footage of the game:
