3D Dot Game Heroes Heading Our Way

We’ve covered 3D Dot Game Heroes a fair bit recently, so it’s great news that the game will be landing on European shores.  Southpeak contacted us this morning to let us know that they’re bringing the game our way in line with the American release, which should place the release some time in May.  The game looks great but this is the first time we’ve had a confirmation of a native Euro version.

“Oozing with 8-bit goodness,” says the publisher, “3D Dot Game Heroes sees players transported back to the golden age of gaming, a glorious era before gruff balding space marines and harrowing shoot outs in airports. Instead 3D Dot Game Heroes sees you questing through the lush kingdom of Dotnia, slaying monsters with your trusty blade, seeking treasure in dungeons and bopping your head to catchy retro-inspired chip tunes.”


“I am delighted to be working with Atlus to publish 3D Dot Game Heroes and we have very high expectations for this exciting and unique title,” said Jonathan Hales, managing director EMEAA, SouthPeak Games. “We’ve been following the progress of the game since it was announced in Japan and are thrilled to have secured the title for Europe.”

“SouthPeak Games is the perfect publisher for 3D Dot Game Heroes in Europe,” stated Tim Pivnicny, vice president of sales and marketing at Atlus. “They share our enthusiasm for 3D Dot’s unique charm and retro appeal, and will work hard to get the game into as many eager gamers’ hands as possible. They also recognise the frustration of many European gamers to not get exciting releases until months after other regions, which is why we’re working closely together to deliver a simultaneous launch for North America and Europe.”
