Nintendo set January 18 as the release date for Glory of Heracles making Paon’s RPG their first game in 2010. It’s also the first game in the Heracles series to get an international release.
Data East started the Glory of Heracles RPG series on the Famicom. When they closed their doors Paon got the rights to the series. Like past works, Glory of Heracles is rooted in Greek mythology. You’re actually Heracles… with amnesia. Kazushige Nojima, the script writer for past Glory of Heracles games and Final Fantasy VII, drafted this story.
The game has turn based battles with touch screen control for magic and a Final Fantasy X style overkill system that encourages players to crush enemies with as much force as possible.
