    [​IMG] New Square Enix/n-Space 3DS game revealed
    The mysterious "Heroes of Ruin"
    [tn=300]http://gbatemp.net/news/ss_preview_heroes_of_ruin.jpg.jpg[/tn]​


    While there's not much info on it, n-Space has accidentally leaked an image and the name of their upcoming Square Enix game, "Heroes of Ruin". There's been no info on what it exactly will be, but so far it seems to be 3DS exclusive.

    If you didn't know, n-Space was behind the Gamecube classic Geist and recently has been making some first person shooters for the DS (such as the three Call of Duty games as well as Goldeneye 007).

    Square Enix is typically known for their RPGs and this game would mark their first new 3DS IP, but n-Space is pretty unfamiliar with the territory. Lookout for more info on it though, an official announcement seems imminent

    UPDATE!

    In the upcoming issue of Nintendo Power, Heroes of Ruin has been revealed as what seems to be an action/RPG game.

    There are four playable mercenaries (as seen in the artwork), each with unique armor, weapons, and abilities to customize.

    Heroes of Ruin also sports an impressive online mode, allowing up to 4-player drop-in/out co-op and voice chat via the 3DS microphone. There's also SpotPass features to allow for daily challenges and other DLC.

    No release date or further info has been added yet, but keep a look out for it! Thanks to Ikki for the information![/p]

    Yeah, I needed to fix the image size (which required me to make a new topic).

    Sorry for the deleted posts, I'm still learning a bit here and there.

    Well, Square Enix is Square Enix. They're like THE RPG company, but they've also produced plenty of non-RPG games.

    n-Space has had an iffy track record. They made Geist and the DS FPS games weren't bad, but they've made plenty of shit. Plus we don't know exactly what this will be.

    I can't really say anything definitive until its announced and we know what it is.

    English isn't difficult...

    Anyway,

    I seriously hope this turns out to be something worth playing (unlike Chaos Rings on the iPhone).

    more than the game, i wish to see the initial set of graphics that square can release. They may just put the standard for HQ games on the 3ds later on.

    Square Enix, they are known to push every console/hand-held to its limits, can't wait to see this.

    Indeed. As much as I dislike it, TWEWY had some really nice graphics. I didn't like the art style for FFIII or FFIV but they also pushed the system a bit. Hopefully this will look good (considering the 3DS is still in its early stage where the graphics of its current games are only baby steps in the graphical capability).

    So did it not make you understand? No?

    Then get off my case. This is a forum, I'm not going to look over every single thing.

    Other words, that was completely unnecessary.

    (tried to put that as nice as I could.)


    I think the game will turn out well...


    @ Guild congrats on the group change.

    Geist was not very good. I'd hesitate labeling it a classic. I was very excited for the game, bought it day one even which was very rare for me back then. Not sure what I was thinking because it ended up being pretty mediocre. Certainly a badass concept though.

    I really want to see what this is about. Not liking those character designs though.

    Edit:

    Details
    - four-player game
    - all the main characters are mercenaries
    - characters allow you to customize their weapons armor, and class abilities.
    - complete parts of the game to earn new items for customization
    - drop-in/drop-out online co-op gameplay and voice chat
    - SpotPass content, such as daily challenges[/p]

    I can see this being sweet.

    ...if this is an ARPG, i hope it's a behind-the-back, 3rd person one, similar to how Elder Scrolls (and WoW) play. and expansive, free-roam worlds please.

    N-Space has done quite a decent job for the black ops DS. The only thing which sucked was graphics, the rest were good... Really good! [​IMG]

    I can't wait to see what this game has to offer. Also, N-Space has quite a number of games under development for the 3DS. Hopefully one of em' will be MW3. [​IMG]
