Rising Star Games has announced it will be releasing Half-Minute Hero in Europe on February 12th.
The Marvelous-developed PSP-exclusive RPG will cater to fans of old-school gaming with its retro-inspired visuals and fast-paced gameplay.
Half-Minute Hero challenges players with a series of quests that must be completed within a strict time limit of 30 seconds. It also boasts 8-bit style visuals as an homage to earlier RPGs.
The game was well received in Japan and the US, with a current Metacritic store of 84.
“Despite being grounded in the fantasy RPG genre, Half-Minute Hero is a game unlike any other,” said Rising Star Games’ MD Martin Defries.
“It’s impossible to play without a massive grin on you face. Half-Minute Hero is a game that keeps on giving – but like an inexperienced teenager: 30 seconds at a time.”
