That rumor about 3D Dot Game Heroes 1.01 just became official news. Atlus announced a 3D Dot Game Heroes update that changes the Dash Circuit race times, lets players keep certain swords in New Game +, and fixes a bug so unseen loading screens are in rotation.
Atlus also borrowed Sackboy from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, an addition the publisher is really proud about. “We can think of no more fitting a character to feature than one that has become synonymous with creativity and imagination in gaming: Sackboy. Now, people who start up their copy of 3D Dot Game Heroes can begin their adventures through the grand Kingdom of Dotnia with one of gaming’s most recognizable icons,” Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus, exclaimed while, we imagine, clutching a Sackboy plushie. The LittleBigPlanet icon is now a selectable hero, along with 50 user submitted designs from Atlus’ Hall of Heroes character sharing site. There’s a penguin mech, arcade machine, manta ray, dragon cosplayer, and a neat looking lamia to save Dotnia with.
So far, this 3D Dot Game Heroes update has not been announced for Japan.
