Original story

Square Enix and n-Space are collaborating on a new 3DS-exclusive action project, Heroes of Ruin.

The DS developer of Call of Duty, Goldeneye and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has been working alongside the Japanese RPG Square Enix on a new four player co-operative game revolving around four mercenaries (presumably the four in the leaked concept art). It was made official on the n-Space Facebook page but since removed.

Nintendo Power however has a brief summary of what to expect from the new 3DS project - a meaty co-operative game with a slew of online features.

Your chosen skilled assassin has customisable weapons, armour and specific classes - unlock able in the main game. Up to three additional friends can help you via local play, but if you can't get enough people in the same room, there'll also be online co-operative play with a drop-in/drop-out feature to keep the action flowing.

Heroes of Ruin will also be the first on the system to include voice chat using the built in microphone. Finally, those who exhaust the main game can also grab a slice of DLC with n-Space set to pump out updates post release.

This could be a great game if the gameplay is solid as well. Smilie

I'm interested.

Nice artwork.

Looks kinda generic to me...I don't know Square has really been loosing it lately.

Third Birthday on psp was a headache & I'm worried for the remake of FF6 T_T

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

That's what some said about Neir, until they played it.

Well atleast Nier mixed things up heavily & had a decent story + awesome weirdness like having a tranny for a party member. But yeah we know nothing about the story as of yet so even though the characters look generic they could be expressed well.

Like I said though I did NOT enjoy 3rd Beats story at ALL & really hope Square gets their act together so they don't muck up Final Fantasy VI for its remake.
