PS3 owners can look forward to a unique, all-original action RPG called "3D Dot Game Heroes."


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.

Despite the retro theme, the game does look impressive technically. It's being developed by Silicon Studio, a developer who worked with From on PSP's Onore no Shinzuru Michi wo Yuke, but who also does middle ware.


In line with the visual style, 3D Dot Game Heroes has some traditional RPG themes. The game's background story involves six magic orbs which were stolen by a demon of darkness, who was then defeated by a brave swordsman and sealed away using the combined power of the orbs. You play as the grandchild of that brave swordsman, and you're tasked with saving the world.


For now, 3D Dot Game Heroes has been announced exclusively for Japan. Players can look forward to a release this November.

No offense to anyone who's excited about this title, but I hope Demon's Souls sells like hot cakes and this dot game completely bombs so their next title is another awesomely dark fantasy action rpg.

Do you have to drop your pants and take a dump in EVERY thread you visit?

Hey, I practically started this thread. Slacker George found that information in response to a question from me in another thread. Tell me you're not greedy for your favorite types of games.

Yeah this does have a lot of potential. I like the art direction but I'd definitely have to play a demo to see if this is for me.

I'd probably check out a demo out of respect for what they did with Demon's Souls.

It's not the same team that made Demon's Souls.

I'm not sure what the exact arrangement is but From Software is listed as the publisher at IGN. I guess the thread title's a little misleading.

Wow... this game looks interesting. From that video it definitely looks like old school Zelda which is a good thing... but I just don't know yet lol.

Have you played Demon's Souls? Setting aside, that game is all about originality. The fun part I suppose would be limited to how much you enjoy cripplingly difficult action RPGs I suppose.

I hope that's sarcasm, this looks like a pretty blatant Zelda ripoff, gameplay-wise. A welcome and clever one, but a ripoff nonetheless.

I realize you weren't saying otherwise but I would like to point out that that appears to be the point.

Yeah. And I'm really looking forward to this, I just don't know about calling it original.
