Did Atlus Pick Up Another PSP Game? (Update)

By Spencer . January 20, 2009 . 8:13am

image Atlus is releasing so many games this quarter it’s easy to loose track of them. I’m pretty certain Class of Heroes is new, though. Right now the unannounced game only exists on a Gamefly database which provides little information other than Class of Heroes is a PSP game.


While I can’t say this for certain my hypothesis is Class of Heroes is the US version of Ken to Mahou to Gakuen Mono (A Swords, Sorcery, and School Thing), an old school dungeon crawler with a high school theme. Acquire published it in Japan back in June and an international release hasn’t been announced yet. Judging by the timeline and name of the game Class of Heroes just might be the North American version. Watch the video for another look at Ken to Mahou to Gakuen Mono. Thoughts? Guesses? Post them in the comments.



Update: We’ll make this news official now. Atlus will release Class of Heroes, which is the English version of Ken to Mahou to Gakuen Mono, on April 7. Take a look at some new screens and a teaser trailer below.

    That would be fantastic. :o

    Edit: Yay!

    Its more interesting to me if it is Eiyuu Densetsu: Sora no Kiseki and they changed the name from Legend Of Heroes because of licensing problems or such, some people said that this game is many times better than the old Legend Of Heroes.

      Me too. But I suspect it’s the game Spencer mentioned, if only because the localization would be a lot easier. For a dungeon crawler, there’s not all the much needed. But for a proper RPG, there’s a lot of text., and something like Sora is apparently a big game (the 2nd chapter of it was on 2 UMDs).

    Very nice. Now to just get a PSP…

  • Cool, I’ll keep my eye on this game. More PSP rpgs the better.

    It’s funny, a few days ago I wasn’t that upset when my PSP’s screen broke because of cold weather (power went out for over 13 hours, so it got below freezing inside), since there was very little to look forward to this year anyway.

    But now I’m starting to get sad.

    Awesome!, it looks like Wizardry

  • Are Halflings what I think they are? :/
