Glory of Heracles Questions Treasure Hunting In Homes

gloryhRansacking homes for healing herbs in RPGs isn’t taboo. After all, you’re a hero on a quest to save the world, and if a family’s meager savings can help you buy a bigger broadsword that’s OK.

 

Glory of Heracles turns this into a minor moral dilemma. When you open a dresser and find an herb Leucos, a fellow immortal and friend of the amnesiac protagonist, asks “Are you really taking that?”. Say yes and he chastises you with, “I didn’t know immortality came with a license to steal, but whatever.”

 

Do heroes get a license to steal?

 

The E3 demo instructed players on how to do everything little thing, sort of like “my first RPG”. A representative from Nintendo explained the final game will give players lots of advice too. Glory of Heracles is being aimed at a younger audience to get them into RPGs. Another reason why to localize this up the popularity of Greek mythology.

 

Glory of Heracles is slated to come out next year. If this game is successful I wonder if Nintendo will go back and pick up other first party RPGs like Soma Bringer and Takt of Magic.
