Created by everyone’s favourite up-and-coming developer/publisher, FuRyu, and localised in the west by XSEED, Heroland is the western title for what is known as WORK X WORK in Japan. Courtesy of E3, we now have a release window for the game – it launches in fall (which is spring to those of us in the southern hemisphere).
This is a title with some serious pedigree behind it. It’s directed by Yamane Takahiro (Fantasy Life), written by Inoue Nobuyuki (Legend of Mana), set in world created by artist Imagawa Nobuhiro (Mother 3, Legend of Mana), and features music from Masuko Tsukasa (Shin Megami Tensei).
It’s a gorgeous, distinct, and creative-looking game. Inspired by the grand old days of JRPGs, it nonetheless looks modern, much like how a game like Octopath Traveler was both completely retro and completely modern at the same time. It’s a game that promises plenty of humour and good times, and we’re looking forward to this one landing on our Switches and PlayStation 4s.
Do you have what it takes to work at Heroland? Must be able to explore dungeons and assist all manner of customers, no matter how outrageous their requests…and yes, that includes Elric, Prince of Knowble’s request to defeat the Dark Lord. Look out for Heroland in 2019. #E32019 pic.twitter.com/XEumjIuh12
