"Many fans of Nippon Ichi Software probably have some fond memories of Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger Vs Darkdeath Evilman which was released back in 2010. While many gamers enjoyed the roguelike, no sequel for the game was ever created. However fans of the roguelike subgenre have a spiritual successor to the aforementioned game in the form of The Guided Fate Paradox. This is the first time that NIS has brought a roguelike, a genre which is often seen as a niche of a niche, to the PlayStation 3 and now that it has been released in English, was their effort successful?"
