New trailer shows off Heroes of Ruin's heroes and ruins

Here's another look at Square Enix and n-Space's upcoming 3DS action-adventure title, Heroes of Ruin. The game looks to fill the vacancy created by a lack of Diablo-style dungeon-crawlers on Nintendo's device. From the looks of this trailer, it'll be doing it with a good solid action-battler in the mold of Dungeon Siege or Square Enix's own Final Fantasy XII.

Besides the online support offered by Heroes of Ruin's voice chat and SpotPass support, the game will also include StreetPass features which allow players to trade, buy and sell in-game items. It's shaping up as a title with the potential to provide 3DS players with a deep, long-lasting challenge. The Spring-dated game is also, you'll note, one of an embarrassingly small list of titles to let you face off against chunky-legged tribal shark-people, a genre of animals(?) sadly neglected since the cancellation of Street Sharks.

    "meh" is all I have to say to this title so far. Also is it just me or now that diablo 3 is right around the corner riding on the hype train more and more diablo-esque titles are showing up to try and get a ride on the hype train but the conducter of hype has said no to Heroes of ruin and is making it walk. I'm not sure where I was going with this but I'm just going to say what we're all thinking, the 3ds really needs Imagine Babyz 3: revenge of the dirty diaper, that was what we were all thinking right??

    I read a preview of this the other day on CVG. Although it does look quite unpolished and is shaping up to have as terrible a storyline as 99% of fantasy RPGs, it looks like a great way to spend a bus or train journey.

    I was going to say it looks sketchy, then I noticed it was a 3DS game so I guess it's fairly impressive. Not my kind of game though.

    This looks fun. I'll have to check it out, as I could certainly use a dungeon crawler that I can play on the go.
