Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku! – Vita Review

Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku is quite the title. The first part celebrates the reappearance of the Cladun series of games. Yeah, don’t worry, you’re not the only one scratching your head. Prior to this review I’d never even heard of the series never mind played any of them either. Cladun was a niche game released on the PSP at the turn of this decade and a sequel arrived a year later.

In this version of Earth there are delinquents, classified as such because they died before they could become true convicts. Basically destined to be criminals, but died too soon. They are sent to the Hell Spire where you, as a programme instructor, are to guide them back to Earth and let them be reformed. It’s a cool modern day Japanese Sci-Fi thing and I really like it.
