Ah, Atlus. For better or worse, you’re always thinking outside the box. And yet you still never return my calls. I mean…anyway, I was wandering about the Atlus website when I came across this little gem. It’s like Lego meets Zelda meets Dragon Quest meets…um…parody.
Lots and lots of parody. Delicious parody. But apparently, it’s all pretty well done. I’ve looked into some info on the game in Japan, and it’s well-loved. Granted, it’s highly reminiscent of some very familiar games, but it apparently does a good job of standing on its own, as well.
I wish I could tell you more, but details are scarce; as of this post, there isn’t even a full website for the North American release. But here are some predictions for 3D Dot Game Heroes:
1. Atlus will only make a limited run of the game. Then, it will become a collector’s item. Atlus isn’t nearly as popular here as it is in Japan.
2. This game will either be very good or mediocre. Atlus is usually hit-or-miss. I’m not expecting anything in-between.
Here’s hoping they hit it out of the park. This game looks pretty good! I’ll try to give you some more information as the release date approaches.
And while you’re waiting for this game, pick up Persona!
