Heroes of Ruin reigns supreme at E3 2012
It was a big week for Heroes of Ruin — and things are only going to get bigger next week!
Just days before Nintendo publishes our multiplayer, action-adventure game in Europe, reporters at the Electronics Entertainment Expo are praising Heroes of Ruin. IGN nominated Heroes of Ruin as Best 3DS Game and PureNintendo awarded Heroes of Ruin their Best RPG award! Meanwhile, gamers in Europe are salivating for the Heroes of Ruin demo hitting the European eShop today. And gamers in North America will soon experience the exhilarating demo for themselves!
Heroes of Ruin, one of the most ambitious titles yet developed for the Nintendo 3DS, includes multiplayer experiences, voice chat, daily challenges and other features to provide an unprecedented Nintendo 3DS experience. It debuts in Europe on June 15 and North America on July 17.
Check out this GameTrailers interview with our very own Tim Schwalk and the many excerpts below to see why we’re so excited to share Heroes of Ruin with you. We look forward to crossing paths with you soon in Nexus!
E3 2012: Heroes of Ruin Preview

Heroes of Ruin is a solid dungeon hack featuring exactly what you expect from the genre: multiple character classes, mountains of diverse loot, and co-op play. When it comes to classes, Heroes of Ruin sports four for your choosing. These classes, the Alchitect, Gunslinger, Savage, and Vindicator, definitely resemble the genre’s usual cast of magic users, tanks, ranged fighters and so on, but n-Space has tweaked the formula to add a bit of their own flavor.

For a 3DS game, Heroes of Ruin has better co-op features than we usually come to expect from a portable title. Four player drop-in/drop-out co-op is supported for both local or online play, and there’s even full voice over IP chat integrated out of the box.

Drop in, drop out online multiplayer? Diablo-esque gameplay on a handheld? Thousands of equipment combinations to chose from? Check, check, check…sign me up. Looks like we won’t have to wait much longer for the game to drop on 3DS consoles everywhere, seeing as how the stateside release date is July 17, and I for one can’t wait.

Apparently [with Heroes of Ruin,] Nintendo’s Wii-U mantra of “Together. Better” has crossed other boundaries.
