King’s Field / Crystal Dragon (Japan Version) [Beta – PSX]

King’s Field is a dungeon crawler created by From Software and released in 1994 for Playstation. It was never published in the West.

From this early screenshot, taken from Edge issue 11, we can see that originally the game was called Crystal Dragon:

Another beta pic, shown below, probably taken from a more advanced build, was published in a issue of Console Mania, an italian magazine.

    Yeah, the Japanese KF1 never made it to English (except through fan translation). Those enemies are from the true KF 1 (Japan), but those menus and scenes weren’t in the final game. Must be an early test of some sort. Where did these pictures come from?

    the big screenshot, which i think is a target render, is from a issue of console mania, a defunct italian magazine.

    The pics in the gallery are instead from a 1994 issue of gamefan.

    updated the article with a new screenshot and the codename (the game was originally known as “crystal dragon”).
