While the earlier titles (pictured) were inspired by Wizardry, New Class of Heroes: Chrono Academy doesn’t have 3D dungeons. New Class of Heroes is described as a field type RPG with a character customization system loaded with options.
New Class of Heroes: Chrono Academy comes out in Japan on July 19. Reserve the game and you’ll get a drama CD and premium ticket as a bonus. It seems like Acquire is considering an international release since they filed a trademark for Chrono Academy in English on the same day they registered the Japanese subtitle.
Update: New Class of Heroes: Chrono Academy follows three transfer students in a time loop where one year of school repeats. ZeroDiv is developing the title.
Update 2: Whoops! Class of Heroes: Chrono Academy is for PSP, not Vita as early leaks suggested. We’ve updated our report.
