I went back to n-Space’s Facebook page after seeing the art they posted on their upcoming game Heroes of Ruin, hoping to find more information, but I was a bit surprised at what I found. I think n-Space got a little too excited over their next game and revealed it earlier than Square Enix would have liked because the post has been removed. Now when you got to n-Space’s Facebook page you are greeted to a status update they did right before the reveal.
I wouldn’t expect a collaboration between n-Space and Square Enix, but that’s exactly what’s happening with the new 3DS game Heroes of Ruin. n-Space teased the game today through their Facebook page. The company posted “Square Enix + 3DS” with the image you see above (which you can see a full version of after the break).
Besides the somewhat generic name, image, and developers involved, we didn’t get anymore information. Coming from both n-Space and Square Enix I expect a certain level of quality, so I’m excited to see more about the game. It seems like I’m required to say “we’ll see more at E3″ for just about every story now, but it’s true. A lot of companies tease games now and then show us everything at E3.
For now we can speculate a bit. I’m going to guess the four characters in the teaser image are the “heroes” of the game, although they look sort of evil to me. Going on that bit of speculation, I’m going to guess that you can choose from one of the four characters to fight with, each with their own abilities and skills. Weapons seemed varied from swords to machine guns. All I know is I would not like to be pit against the dude in the back. He’s pretty intimidating.
This announcement marks the first of three 3DS games n-Space is developing. Expect to find out the other two very soon.
It turns out that Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version won’t be making the eShop launch. Japanese magazine Famitsu reported on this delay and said Capcom is working on improving the quality of the game.
This is a frustrating situation for me. It was bad enough the eShop was delayed until June 6th. Delaying what may be the only worthwhile original game fro the service doesn’t bode well for its launch. Nintendo hasn’t announced any other games for the eShop launch, so it may be a relatively uneventful launch.
Expect to hear about a new release date Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version at E3.
Remember a while ago when Nintendo announced that certain features that should be avaliable at the launch of a system weren’t going to be ready until May? Well, that special date has now become June 6th. If you can’t tell I’m a little disappointed. Obviously, the date is set to coincide with the E3 conference, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we got to see 3DS trailers in 3D. That would be pretty cool, and it would be even better if we got the demos they were playing at E3, straight on our 3DS.
Nintendo didn’t announce what would be launching with the eShop. However, they did note that the internet browser would be included in the update which seemingly disproves those rumors that many sites picked up. It should be noted that June 6th is a Monday so it seems like Nintendo will keep updating their download services on Mondays.
It’s disappointing but at least Nintendo finally talked about the update, right?
