Planning to be a hero?

On occasions when European and North American release dates are weeks apart, in this case a full month, then it's worth giving a quick reminder for anyone that hasn't kept track. This one is all about Heroes of Ruin, the action RPG developed by n-Space and published by Square Enix, and it's in North American stores now.

It's worthy of a mention because it makes better use of the online capabilities of 3DS than, arguably, any other title released so far. Online multiplayer and questing with full voice-chat and various other options shows that a great deal of effort went into this one, even if it's a title with a few flaws.

If you want to learn more, check out our Heroes of Ruin review that was posted for the European release, and if you fancy some online questing with the Nintendo Life community you should join in with the Heroes of Ruin Adventurer's Guild on the forums, with 'ye olde' speech an optional extra.

So, is anyone planning to pick this up for some adventuring with friends?
