Since the days of NES, there have been a litany of video games to come to different regions but never be released in others. Titles like Mother 3, Custom Robo, Dynamic Slash, and many others never made it beyond the shores of Japan, while regions like Europe suffered without Super Mario RPG for years. There’s a long list of titles just like these, but thankfully XSEED has decided to bring the unique looking RPG Heroland to the west!

Here’s what to expect from the game:

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), set 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.

As the description reveals, Heroland has a great pedigree of creators working on it, including people that have labored on the aforementioned Mother 3, Legend of Mana, and Shin Megami Tensei. The release date for Heroland is listed as December 3, so be sure to get in preorders now if you’re interested.
