Looks really great. Hope the game gets a US release, or at least is in English too so I can import. :lol

Water doesn't look cool enough.

Is this going to be a full fledge game? sort of think it's like Dragon Warriors gone 3D 2D blocky.
there is an image on the site with water that has reflections, looks better there.

Such an awesome idea, love the way this looks. I really hope we see this outside Japan. Sadly I think most gamers won't "get" it.

The pics could use some AA, but if it's a question of AA versus the DOF ... I'll take jaggies galore :D


Damn, I LOVE the look of this game.

3D Dot Game Heroes is set in the Kingdom of Dotnia. This world was once made up of 2D sprite art like something out of an old school game. However, wanting to attract more people to the kingdom, the king decided to use technology to make everything 3D. This is where something goes horribly wrong, although just what that is has yet to be specified.
Despite the retro theme, the game does look impressive technically. It's being developed by Silicon Studio, a developer who worked with From on PSP's Onore no Shinzuru Michi wo Yuke, but who also does middle ware.

In line with the visual style, 3D Dot Game Heroes has some traditional RPG themes. The game's background story involves six magic orbs which were stolen by a demon of darkness, who was then defeated by a brave swordsman and sealed away using the combined power of the orbs. You play as the grandchild of that brave swordsman, and you're tasked with saving the world.
