King's Field was released for the PlayStation in Japan on December 16, 1994, 13 days after the PlayStation console itself went on sale. The game's fully 3D, first person perspective was groundbreaking among role-playing video games of the time and received significant critical acclaim.. The next two King's Field titles followed in quick succession: King's Field II on July 21, 1995, and King's Field III on June 21, 1996. King's Field IV was released several years later for the PlayStation 2 on October 4, 2001.
