XSEED Games revealed that Heroland will launch for Windows PC on Steam, in addition to the previously announced Nintendo SwitchTM system and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, on December 3. The absurdly humorous and ridiculously cute RPG set in a theme park has been winning hearts since its first showing at E3 2019 and is available for preorder as a day 1 physical Heroland “Knowble Edition” for a MSRP of $49.99 at participating retailers. The digital version of the game will also be available at launch for $39.99 on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo SwitchTM, PlayStation®Store, and Windows PC via Steam and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle.
“Squeak squeaky! Squeak,” said MonStar Team All-Star Li’l Slug, which translates roughly to, “We’re preparing all kinds of ‘fun’ activities for our victi…er…GUESTS to enjoy after our GRAND OPENING later this year. Why are you looking at me like that, never seen a slug talk before? You got a problem with that, buddy?!”
Heroland is a 2D RPG about a wondrous theme park where guests can explore dungeons, beat up baddies, and become legendary heroes—while the player assists from the sidelines as a tour guide! Released in Japan as WORK x WORK and created by key developers from MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana, and Fantasy Life, this tale of princes and pixels is told by over 20 quirky characters with a new take on classic-RPG-style combat.
Welcome to Heroland—a bright, tropical theme park resort where guests partake in an authentic RPG-styled adventure, exploring dungeons, beating up baddies, and become a legendary hero! Unfortunately, the role-playing becomes reality when Lucky, an unexceptional part-time tour guide, and his guests including Elric, the spoiled, fallen prince of the Knowble Kingdom, unintentionally begin unraveling Heroland’s dark history. Now it’s up to Lucky, Elric and a ragtag team of tourists-turned-heroes to save Heroland (and the world!).
Heroland is directed by Takahiro Yamane (Fantasy Life), written by Nobuyuki Inoue (MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana), set in a colorful 2D world created by Nobuhiro Imagawa (MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana), and jam-packed with Tsukasa Masuko’s (Shin Megami Tensei) whimsical tunes. The esteemed team brings an unforgettable adventure filled with unique heroes including overzealous knights, high school girls, pretentious princes and a nihilistic otter (or is he human?!). And no adventure set in a theme park would be compete without a curious cast of monsters including cute little slugs, selfie-loving skeletons and man-eating broccoli— who also happen to be co-workers.
Published by XSEED Games for Nintendo SwitchTM, Windows PC, and PS4TM system, Heroland will launch on December 3 in North America. This game has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB.
