Nippon Ichi Software eru með nýjan, handteiknaðan, side-scrolling hlutverkaleik í burðarliðnum. Sá heitir The Cruel King and the Great Hero og kemur út í mars á næsta ári.


A fearsome dragon known as the Demon King once ruled over the entire world, that is, until he was dethroned by a young, valiant hero…

Not wishing to take the Demon King’s life, the hero instead severed one of the Demon King’s two horns—the source of all his power. As the dragon lay dejected and wounded, the hero accompanied him in the days following as he healed. With each passing day, the Demon King became less terrifying, and before they knew it, the two —once adversaries— became friends.

However, on one faithful day, the hero sustained a fatal wound. He asked one final favor from his friend, the dragon: to raise his child well. Clutched in his arms was his infant daughter.

The Demon King was never more sure about anything else in his life. This girl would be his chance at redemption.

The Demon King kept his word. The girl would then be raised under the wings of the Dragon King, the former wicked tyrant turned father. The girl loved listening to tales of her birth father’s many adventures from the Dragon King, even wishing that one day, she would become a hero herself. The Dragon King knew this day would come.

„Yuu will absolutely become a great hero.“

„—If you were to defeat me one day, then so be it.“
