Nintendo Signs European Distribution Deal With Square Enix Europe For Heroes of Ruin
Today Nintendo of Europe announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Square Enix Europe for the forthcoming game Heroes of Ruin. This is a brand new adventure created specifically for the Nintendo 3DS system. Nintendo will be responsible for sales, marketing and distribution of the game throughout EEA, Switzerland, Russia, Turkey and South Africa, with Square Enix Europe remaining as the publisher.
Heroes of Ruin pushes social and online interaction to the forefront of gameplay through the innovative use of the 3DS. You can download fresh daily challenges online and trade rare and powerful items through the in-game shop which has an inventory updated through the creative use of Streetpass. You can connect locally or over the internet to fight alongside your friends in cooperative multiplayer, taking the battles to the next level!
The 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. It is your job to choose one of the four most unlikely heroes to answer the call given out by the city, and search for the cure which will help lift the curse.
This game also challenges players to carve their own adventure as a Gunslinger, Alchitect, Vindicator or Savage. You can also 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. Using the multiplayer system mentioned earlier, you can choose to form an alliance with other heroes, through four-player drop in/drop out multiplayer.
Heroes of Ruin is released on the Nintendo 3DS on 15 June.
