9 June, 2011 - 2:08 am by

Square Enix have confirmed that they will be releasing Heroes of Ruin for the Nintendo 3DS in the near future. The story of the game is indepth and the title will boast a whole load of new features that are available on the 3Ds, such as using the 3D to the best effect, personalised and unique characters, use the 3DS microphone to chat in real time to your friends and get achievements sent daily to you.

The story is as follows:

War raged for over a hundred years until strong, powerful Lords emerged from the fighting to bring a fragile peace to the land. This peace is threatened when one of the Lords, Ataraxis, ruler of the city of Nexus, is taken ill by a deadly curse. A call is sent out, promising rewards beyond measure for anyone who finds a cure. Four mercenaries, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and motivations answer the call. One uses forbidden spells to rain death on her foes, one has guns and bombs to blast his way through, another has a mighty sword capable of slicing through entire packs of enemies, and one other gains strength from savagely tearing through anything that stands in his way with brutal, bladed fists.

These unlikely heroes can choose to create a fearsome alliance or venture forth from the city alone. Beyond the safety of the city the land is filled with strange and dangerous creatures, but none as deadly as the evil force behind the curse, which the heroes must eventually confront and destroy.

With full StreetPass and SpotPass functionality built in, this title will be a must have from Square. There’s currently no release date advised.
