Update: thanks to Susumu and Matt we found out that this obscure RPG was really published in Japan with the name “Lagnacure” by a company called Artdink. You can find more screens of the released version at Snesorama!

Laguna Cool is a cancelled (?) RPG that was in development by Sony Music Entertainment in 1996/1997 for the original Playstation. The game was available at the Tokyo Game Show 1997 but we dont know if there was any playable demo or it was just a video. A single screenshot of this RPG was found by Celine in PSM magazine #3. There are pratically no info on the project, at least with the Laguna Cool title: could this game have been released with another name in Japan? If you recognize this screen, please let us know!

Thanks to Celine for the scan!

    This game was released in Japan as Laguna Cool (ラグナキュール) on October 2, 1997, and was published by a company called Ardink. (Here is a link to the Amazon Japan listing for it, with cover art: http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%A2%E3%83%BC%E3%83%88%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%83%B3%E3%82%AF-ARTDINK-BEST-CHOICE-%E3%83%A9%E3%82%B0%E3%83%8A%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A5%E3%83%BC%E3%83%AB/dp/B00005OV91)
    It also had a sequel called Laguna Cool Legend (ラグナキュールレジェンド) that was released about 3 years later.
    I have never played this game, so I can not give any information regarding changes with that one image.

    Sorry to double comment, I forgot to put a space between the link and the second parenthesis, messing up the URL. Click my name for the correct one. As well, I misspelled Artdink. Careless mistakes. :/

    Ah so the western name was “Lagnacure”.
    Thank you Susumu and Matt.
    There are few scans that I can’t recognize if they were released or not :-(

    Indeed, the character from that “Laguna Cool” scan looks the same as the one in the “Lagnacure” screens. The mistery is resolved! Thanks a lot Susumu and Matt :) I’m going to update the page
