Dungeon Travelers 2 & Dungeon Travelers 2-2 Will Not Release on Steam Due to Review Process Not Keeping “Core Appeal,” Says Shiravune

Shiravune has announced that the western PC release of the Aquaplus-developed Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & the Monster Seal and Dungeon Travelers 2-2: The Fallen Maidens & the Book of Beginnings will not be able to release on Steam.

The provided reasoning was shared:

“Steam’s review made it impossible to pass while keeping the core appeal and high standards we hold for these titles. We apologize to all players who were still looking forward to a Steam version of DT2-2.

We apologize to all players who were still looking forward to a Steam version of DT2-2.”

This outcome is sadly not new, as Valve has a history of needlessly banning visual novel content on its platform. The same happened with Chaos;Head Noah, even though it ultimately ended up being allowed. Still, that was only a lucky exception, it seems.

Both Dungeon Travelers games are currently available on Johren for $19.99 USD:

Dungeon Travelers 2 is a monster-collecting dungeon crawler where players will set off on a quest to save the world…oh who cares about any of them. The biggest draw is that during gameplay, players will fight against sexy monster girls and add them to their party. There’s also a touching mini-game. This version will be based on the Vita release.

Dungeon Travelers 2-2 was released on Vita in 2017 in Japan but never released in the West. The game acts as a sort of updated version of the original but is set in a different world with some shared characters.
