'Heroes of Ruin' (3DS) Unveils Coral Tombs - Screens

Heroes of Ruin is a brand new adventure featuring four unlikely heroes brought together to form a fearsome alliance. Custom-built for 3DS, with support for online play and a wealth of social gaming features, players will find a new experience awaits them every day.

Heroes of Ruin uses StreetPass to create an inventive in-game ‘Traders’ Network’ where players can buy and sell rare and powerful items picked up in battle. With an ever-changing inventory updated from each player passed in public, character strengths and abilities can be greatly enhanced through accessing items from other players’ games. Outside of the game, Heroes of Ruin makes use of SpotPass to reward players with rare one-off items or unique challenges through local wi-fi hotspots. The official Heroes of Ruin community website will reward players further with daily challenges and quests available to complete in-game. With social media functionality, the site will also give players a platform to meet other gamers, swap ideas and items and team-up in-game.

Heroes of Ruin challenges players to carve their own adventure, joining forces with other heroes through seamless drop-in/drop-out co-op multiplayer or venturing forth alone. Players will enter an ever-changing world where danger waits around every corner. Heroes can explore and fight through wild, varied and dynamic environments, discovering new layouts and routes each time they play. Packed with strange and deadly creatures, these dangerous lands will stretch players’ combat and tactical skills as they enhance their character, collecting loot, weapons and armour to empower them on their quest.

Originally an ancient graveyard, the tombs were subsequently claimed by the sea. As such the now exposed areas are a mix of coral shoals, wrecked ships, hidden buildings and flotsam and jetsam which has washed in with the invading waves.  The tombs hold rich rewards as well as the odd buried secret for those who venture in, but for those that don't know the dangers, a nasty fate likely awaits at the hands of the creatures which populate the various levels...

Coral outcrops are a common sight amongst the stalagmites, some may find hidden treasures where the coral has simply grown over the loot. Other rich pickings may be found in urn-like containers and other such vessels scattered about.  Of course you may well find the odd weapon discarded by some warrior from the past as well, should your eyesight be sharp.

For those survivors past and present that wash up at the entrance to the Coral Tombs it is a welcome if unfriendly sanctuary, for others, as indicated by the skeletal remains near the top of the picture it is clearly a final resting place.
