XSEED Games launches Heroland will launch for Windows PC, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 tomorrow. The absurdly humorous and ridiculously cute RPG set in a theme park has a MSRP of $49.99 CAD in the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Store, and Windows PC via Steam and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle.

Heroland is a 2D RPG about a wondrous theme park where guests can explore dungeons, beat up baddies, and become legendary heroes—while the player assists from the sidelines as a tour guide! Released in Japan as WORK x WORK and created by key developers from MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana, and Fantasy Life, this tale of princes and pixels is told by over 20 quirky characters with a new take on classic-RPG-style combat. The Heroland “Knowble Edition” is packed with everything a tourist-turned-hero needs for adventuring and battling baddies in a theme park, housed in a custom box including:

Welcome to Heroland—a bright, tropical theme park resort where guests partake in an authentic RPG-styled adventure, exploring dungeons, beating up baddies, and become a legendary hero! Unfortunately, the role-playing becomes reality when Lucky, an unexceptional part-time tour guide, and his guests including Elric, the spoiled, fallen prince of the Knowble Kingdom, unintentionally begin unraveling Heroland’s dark history. Now it’s up to Lucky, Elric and a ragtag team of tourists-turned-heroes to save Heroland (and the world!).

Heroland is directed by Takahiro Yamane (Fantasy Life), written by Nobuyuki Inoue (MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana), set in a colorful 2D world created by Nobuhiro Imagawa (MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana), and jam-packed with Tsukasa Masuko’s (Shin Megami Tensei) whimsical tunes. The esteemed team brings an unforgettable adventure filled with unique heroes including overzealous knights, high school girls, pretentious princes and a nihilistic otter (or is he human?!). And no adventure set in a theme park would be complete without a curious cast of monsters including cute little slugs, selfie-loving skeletons, and man-eating broccoli— who also happen to be co-workers.
