The latest entry in the Class of Heroes franchise is a reboot, per say. New Class of Heroes: Chrono Academy, due for PSP on July 19 in Japan, moves away from the series’ roots as a 3D dungeon RPG in trade for an open field RPG. Famitsu.com has gone live with its online preview of the game, providing us our first direct-feed look at the title.

New Class of Heroes follows the story of three transfer students at Chrono Academy.

From Dungeon RPG to 3D Field RPG
As detailed earlier, New Class of Heroes abandons 3D dungeons for the field. A world map will allow players to enter fields, dungeons, and battle enemies.
Familiar components, such as character customization, are still present in New Class of Heroes.
