Following its Nintendo Direct announcement yesterday, Bandai Namco has further detailed its newly announced 3DS “dramatic hero dungeon RPG” sequel Lost Heroes 2.
Due out on February 5 for 5,690 yen (plus tax), the game will come in standard and limited editions. For 9,500 yen (plus tax), the Limited Edition will include:
- A port of the Super Nintendo game Hero Senki: Project Olympus accessible from the title screen.
- If you use a Hero Technique during a battle, the game will play one of over 20 theme songs from the hero TV shows.
- Lost Heroes series 300-page art book. (Package edition only.)
The game also includes a download code for an updated version of the original Lost Heroes, which launched for 3DS and PSP in 2012. Lost Heroes: Bonus Edition features additional voices and balance adjustments to make the game easier to play.
As for Lost Heroes 2, the game brings together the heroes of the Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and Gundam series. Players will be able to freely organize a party of four characters before heading out into dungeons. It follows a new story set after the first game where players must face against a new despair concerning the “Fragments of Regis.”
New heroes set to appear include Ultraman Ginga, Kamen Rider Wizard, and Unicorn Gunam, among others. In battle, the scope of attack affinities and weaknesses has been expanded, granting the game additional layers of new depth. New character voices have also been added to the game, as well as cutscenes designed to enhance immersion during combat.
There’s also a new “Rush System,” which lets players trigger “Hero Rush” for a powerful attack. While players are able to trigger it at their discretion, timing is key for making the most of it.
