Nintendo have entered into an agreement with Square Enix to be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of Square Enix’s upcoming 3DS action/adventure Heroes of Ruin across Europe.
Heroes of Ruin pushes social and online interaction to the forefront of gameplay through innovative use of the Nintendo 3DS hardware. Players can trade rare and powerful items through an in-game shop which has an inventory updated through creative use of StreetPass. Connect your 3DS console online to download fresh daily challenges which allow you to earn rewards as you play. Heroes can choose to take the battle to the next level by connecting locally or over the internet to fight alongside their friends in cooperative multiplayer.
In Heroes of Ruin, your adventure begins in the grand city of Nexus where a fragile peace has been shattered when a curse is placed upon the city’s ruler. Unable to find a cure, a call is sent out across the lands, promising rewards beyond measure to anyone who can find a cure. Choose from one of four unlikely heroes to answer the call and find the cure to save the city.
Heroes of Ruin challenges players to carve their own adventure as a Gunslinger, Alchitect, Vindicator or Savage. Create and customise your character and battle the elements and an array of fearsome and dangerous creatures through an environment with routes that change every time you play. Choose to form an alliance with other heroes, through four-player drop-in/drop-out multiplayer either locally or online, or go it alone, venturing forth into the wilderness to ultimately do battle with the mysterious force behind the curse.
Heroes of Ruin will be available for 3DS from June 15th.
