Casts level 2 Intrigue
3DS's online action RPG Heroes of Ruin is due to land on 26th June, Square Enix has revealed.
The title was originally promised for 'early' 2012 but has now seemingly slipped to the middle of the year. Hopefully that means its ambitious online multiplayer, including voice chat and regular new content via SpotPass, will make the most of 3DS's online functions.
We played the game back in July and rather liked what we saw, as you can read in our Heroes of Ruin preview.
