Coming Stateside via Atlus!

---------------


Old OP below:
From Software who previously did Demons Souls for PS3 have a new game in the works.
Official site up!

http://www.3d-heroes.net/

Imagine an 8-bit RPG turned into a 3D world.
At least that's what I get out of the scan.

Story bits:

3D Dot Game Heroes is set in the Kingdom of Dotnia. This world was once made up of 2D sprite art like something out of an old school game. However, wanting to attract more people to the kingdom, the king decided to use technology to make everything 3D. This is where something goes horribly wrong, although just what that is has yet to be specified.

I love the artstyle and can't wait to find out more.
Hope it's localized! (and gets a name change!)

Love the look, wonder what kind of gameplay. Hope it's not a turnbased RPG.

I've never been attracted to the lego game series aesthetically, but I can really get behind this. It's adorable.

Famistu scans make everything look better than it actually is. ie: Soul Calibur IV.

Reminds me of Badman and Half Minute Hero, which I'm absolutely sure had a pull in making this happen.

I'm adding some links and pics to the OP.
This game comes out in 3 months, holy crap.

Please bring it over Atlus, XSEED!

Sure does look like something Atlus or Xseed will pick up.

I surely can't be the only one who thinks it looks like a 3D update to Dragon Warrior.

That said, my interest is piqued.

Yeah, the screen screen with the hero and the king looks straight out of Dragon Warrior.

Wow, usually I would pass over a game from Atlus, but this game is going on my radar. I love the art style and would like to see how it looks in motion.

the GAF thread of this game has become sexual to me.

The nice thing about 8-bit is that when speaking of sexuality, it slides right in. You'll just have problems if you're missing a dot or have an extra dot seeing as it's not very flexible.


On another note, the game looks interesting. I'm definitely looking forward to it. I'd be willing to bet that this will get localized, so here's hoping to sooner rather than later.

Wow, I was a little worried seeing it in motion might disappoint.

But no.......... no.
A beautiful homage to Zelda from the enemies to the music.
Along with elements from all the better 8 bit classics.

As a user pointed out on GAF, even the gameworld locale placement has take from this:

Wow. It literally is a smash up of Zelda 1 and 3, all in 8 bit, but 3dorized. Music, jumping spider doods, rocks falling down off mountains....it's all there.

That's a reason to pick up a PS3.

The game even has a character editor.
I'm sure there will be guides on how to make a Link day 1. :)

Is this a PS3 exclusive?
