Hero Must Die

A demo for Nippon Ichi Software’s PS Vita RPG Hero Must Die is now available for download on the PlayStation Store in Japan.

In Hero Must Die, players sacrifice their life to slay the demon king and become a hero, but God grants you five days to live before you go to heaven. Depending on what you do during that period, the content of the ending (your funeral) will change.

The demo will let you play the game for one playthrough. What that means is that God will grant the hero five days (five hours of game time). Queue up the 796MB download here.

Hero Must Die is due out for PS Vita in Japan on February 25.
