It was last month when Game Freak confirmed that Little Town Hero would be making the jump from the Switch and heading to PS4. The colourful RPG is going to be released on April 23rd in Japan and now the release date for the West has been confirmed. On June 2nd players in North America will be able to purchase the game, while Europe will have to wait until June 5th.
The physical edition is called the Big Idea Edition and will come with the game’s soundtrack, poster, art book, and lapels. The game will also be getting an easy mode which will see the attacks and defences from enemies lowered. The enemy Special Effects will also turn up less often so there is less to worry about in battles.
The game’s full blurb is below.
The story is set in an isolated village on the edge of the world. The only gate leading outside is heavily guarded by a castle, and the villagers are not allowed to leave. Most of the villagers don’t give it a thought, and happily go on with their everyday lives. However, the protagonist is a little different from the others – he wants to see the world outside.
One day, a “Monster” appears in the village, shocking everyone because until then, no one knew such creatures existed. The protagonist is able to fight it using a mysterious Red stone he found in the coalmines. In the course of his defense of the village, he gradually unravels secrets of how the stones and the monsters came to be…
Unlike most RPGs, there is no need to fight weak monsters repeatedly to level grind in. Little Town Hero. Instead, you will need to have a good strategy to fight each boss monster one on one. Will the protagonist live the adventure he craves and escape the humdrum village life?
