Heroland is a 2D RPG about a theme park where guests can explore dungeons, beat up baddies, and become legendary heroes—while the player assists from the sidelines as a tour guide! Released in Japan as WORK x WORK and created by key developers from MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana, and Fantasy Life, this tale of princes and pixels is told by over 20 quirky characters with a new take on classic-RPG-style combat.
Welcome to Heroland—a bright, tropical theme park resort where guests partake in an authentic RPG-styled adventure, exploring dungeons, beating up baddies, and become a legendary hero! Unfortunately, the role-playing becomes reality when Lucky, an unexceptional part-time tour guide, and his guests including Elric, the spoiled, fallen prince of the Knowble Kingdom, unintentionally begin unraveling Heroland’s dark history. Now it’s up to Lucky, Elric and a ragtag team of tourists-turned-heroes to save Heroland (and the world!).
Heroland is directed by Takahiro Yamane (Fantasy Life), written by Nobuyuki Inoue (MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana), taking place in a colorful 2D world created by Nobuhiro Imagawa (MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana), and jam-packed with Tsukasa Masuko’s (Shin Megami Tensei) whimsical tunes. The esteemed team brings an unforgettable adventure filled with unique heroes including overzealous knights, high school girls, pretentious princes and a nihilistic otter (or is he human?!). And no adventure set in a theme park would be compete without a curious cast of monsters including cute little slugs, selfie-loving skeletons and man-eating broccoli— who also happen to be co-workers.
Published by XSEED Games for Nintendo Switch™ and PS4™ system in North America, the physical day 1 Heroland “Knowble Edition” is available for preorder on the XSEED Games Store and select retailers for $49.99, while the digital standalone game will be available for $39.99 on the Nintendo eShop and the PlayStation®Store when the game launches this fall.
