Nintendo of Europe has today announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Square Enix Europe for the forthcoming Heroes of Ruin, a brand new adventure created specifically for the Nintendo 3DS system. Under the terms of the agreement, Nintendo will be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the game throughout EEA, Switzerland, Russia, Turkey and South Africa territories, with Square Enix Europe remaining as publisher.
Heroes of Ruin pushes social and online interaction to the forefront of gameplay through innovative use of the Nintendo 3DS hardware. Players can trade rare and powerful items through an in-game shop which has an inventory updated through creative use of StreetPass. Connect your 3DS console online to download fresh daily challenges which allow you to earn rewards as you play. Heroes can choose to take the battle to the next level by connecting locally or over the internet to fight alongside their friends in cooperative multiplayer.
In Heroes of Ruin, your adventure begins in the grand city of Nexus where a fragile peace has been shattered when a curse is placed upon the city’s ruler. Unable to find a cure, a call is sent out across the lands, promising rewards beyond measure to anyone who can find a cure. Choose from one of four unlikely heroes to answer the call and find the cure to save the city.
Heroes of Ruin challenges players to carve their own adventure as a Gunslinger, Alchitect, Vindicator or Savage. Create and customise your character and battle the elements and an array of fearsome and dangerous creatures through an environment with routes that change every time you play. Heroes of Ruin will be released across Europe on 15th June 2012, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the forthcoming videogame.
