More anime are being turned into games, and that’s a great thing. We’ll be playing Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? – Infinite Combate (not a misspelling) sometime next year, and it’s mixing up a lot of elements, just like the show. The game will be a dungeon-crawling RPG with visual novel story elements.
That story will follow the events of the first season with some new content. If you are unfamiliar with the story, Bell Cranel wants to be an adventurer. That means joining one of the Familia. They are run by gods who have come down from the lofty heights to find excitement with humans. There is an enormous dungeon under the town and humans, elves, and other parties can venture into its depths to kill dangerous monsters, gain amazing treasures, and generally make a name for themselves. The characters can even level up.
Bell finds a goddess who will take him under her wing in the Hestia Familia. He’s excited, and he’s the only member. The two of them will need to work together to overcome difficult challenges and make a few friends at the same time. The second season lost me a little, but the first season was pretty good.
The game will ship with multiple modes. The aptly named Story mode will take you through the events of the first season. Extra Dungeons mode will procedurally generate a new area for you to explore. Date Events will let you get to know the other characters better.
Check out the trailer for a look at the gameplay, but the visuals have cutesy looking characters. It seems more action RPG than turn-based, but I could be wrong. I also see that you will be able to play as Ais “Wallenwhatsit” Wallenstein, so I am hoping to spend time with other characters in the dungeon too.
I have added a lot of screenshots, so give them a look to see some gameplay and characters. There are menus too if that’s your thing. (I like to see them, so I won’t judge.)

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
