'3D Dot Game Heroes' (PS3) Coming to Europe

Pixels rule again in the ultimate retro action-adventure game 3D Dot Game Heroes. Dripping with old school charm, classic gaming pizzazz, and pure retro sexy, 3D Dot Game Heroes is the ultimate homage to the industry's golden era.

A long, long time ago, the Dark King Onyx brought an age of darkness upon Dotnia Kingdom.  Only by the bravery of a hero with a legendary sword was Onyx sealed in an orb, restoring peace to the world.  But Fuelle, a powerful Dark Bishop, has stolen the orb, and with it, peace.  Dotnia requires a hero once more!  Can you live up to the legend?

“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."

Key Features

  • Ultimate retro love letter -- Seamlessly fusing new and old, the golden era of gaming is felt in every detail of this lovingly-crafted adventure. Eye-popping visuals capture the nostalgic charm of pixel graphics in cutting edge 3D. Simple, but deep action-adventure gameplay is a throwback to the 8-bit era. Veterans will find references and jokes that pay homage to the great games of yore.
  • Awe and adventure live again -- Embark on the next generation of classic exploration and discovery in a grand story-based quest. A hero sets out to gain the power of the six sages and the six orbs that protected the kingdom of Dotnia, which now stands on the verge of destruction.
  • Customize your hero -- When pixels are your building blocks, the possibilities are unlimited. Freely edit the look of your character, or design one completely from scratch, and then trade designs with friends via a compatible USB storage device. Your hero's blade is also upgradeable, letting you add length and width to create a sword that fills the whole screen!

Dripping with old school charm, classic gaming pizzazz, and pure retro sexy, 3D Dot Game Heroes is the ultimate homage to the industry's golden era.

3D Dot Game Heroes will be available in North America ( $39.99) and Europe simultaneously.
