A Look Into 3D Dot Game Heroes

You may have read a few of the articles as of late right here on Platform Nation about the upcoming 2D, retro style graphic game with the 3D environment heading our way May 11th 2010 for the PlayStation 3  and if your like me you want to see more of what 3D Dot Game Heroes has to offer.  Well some journalist got to sit down with Aram Jabbar from Atlus via video conferencing and I was one of them to watch and learn a little more about this upcoming game.   Aram started by taking us through the editor and proved just how easy it was for us to make a custom character that he built bit by bit and got right into the gameplay.  Aram even took the time to make expressions for his new character and showed how each expression was used as he walked and even attacked, all this in just about three minutes.  The customization also allows you to  pick the colors of your character.  If your not in the mood to make your own customized character you can chose from the playable characters already made for you.  The gameplay was smooth and the environments where awesome from the water surrounding the castle to the forest full of trees.  There where many levels to choose from that included mini-games and side quests and even a place where you can get your “natural sword enhancement” done on the spot.  From exploring dungeons to solving puzzles and slaying  monsters this game provides a little something for everyone and with the price tag of $39.99 this can fit into almost any gamers budget.

All in all I fell in love with this game and it will be a day one purchase for me as not only is the price tag appealing, but the game itself brings an old gamer like me back to the days of long ago straight to the retro 8-bit era.

Thanks again to Aram Jabbari from Atlus for the presentation and taking time out of his busy schedule to give us journalist a look a little further into 3D Dot Game Heroes.

  • Yes !!! I can’t wait for this game !

  • I’m still sort of confused as to what kind of game this is and how much content there is included cause to me, from what I’ve seen, it doesn’t seem to fit the price tag.

  • @Ben take a look at the videos from the previous posts and you will get a feel for the game as it is going to provide many hours of gameplay as it has a full campaign and with the side quests and mini games it just rounds out this game.

    • So from what I gather, it’s an RPG similar to the classic Zelda. Looks interesting. Will have to try it out. Thanks for pushing me in the right direction.

  • Oh this is a day one purchase for me. April and May Im going to be dissapearing.

    Ive even been so tempted to get a Japanese version through play asia.

  • Finally, people are realizing the glory that will be 3D Dot Game Heroes!
