Sega has revealed that it is working on a 3DS RPG by the name of Hero Bank, where the ultimate goal isn't to save mankind, but to earn as much moolah as possible by taking part in a cyber sport known as "Hero Battle".

Apparently, players can download "hero data" based on real-life individuals and use it in the game. It sounds a bit like Barcode Battler for the web age, if you ask us.

Hero Bank is hitting Japan on December 19th, and there's no word on a western launch at present.
