MonkeyPaw Gamestoday announced that import J-RPG Class of Heroes II will be making its North American debut on PlayStation Network this autumn. The digital release, playable on the PSP and PlayStation Vita, will also mark the first time that North American gamers will be able to play the addictive sequel, boasting significant gameplay tweaks and improvements over the original.
Fans of dungeon crawlers will enjoy the challenging quests, crazy monster hordes and the hundreds of equipment and skill combinations for beefing up soon-to-be hero students. Numerous hours of strategic gameplay, branching storylines and quests make Class of Heroes II a rewarding experience with rich replayability.
Class of Heroes II is a charming take on the Wizardry-style dungeon crawl games, but with a twist – all the party members are drawn from a pool of newly enrolled students at a Sword and Sorcery School.
The game features 10 classes to choose from: Novice, Fighter, Swordsman, Ranger, Monk, Ninja, Sorcerer, Puppeteer, Idol, and one Mystery Class. Once a team is created, quests are offered and the party can choose their adventure path, unlocking ever more distant and dangerous areas to conquer as they grow in power and confidence.
Monster parties can be more than one level deep in a single combat episode, leading to epic encounters of up to 12 or more monsters at a time, where managing a party’s ranged and melee skills can be the difference between victorious life and an ignominious death.
No dungeon crawler would be complete without an occasional boss, and Class of Heroes II doesn’t disappoint here, either, with nail-biting super-encounters littered on the path between your party and ultimate victory.
