A Guitar-Playing Cactus? Spear-Wielding Shark? This RPG Has Both Those



Hello Hero, a turn-based RPG for smartphones developed in Korea, is headed to the west. You control a team of five heroes across the planet of Armon, including quirky characters like a guitar-playing cactus and a spear-wielding shark.


Hello Hero actually allows a choice of over 200 characters that can be used in the game’s 90 (approximately) stages. In addition to its regular dungeons, the game also has boss raids and player-vs.-player arenas spread across multiple environments.


Boss raids take place every three days, where players can play online together in order to take down a World Boss. Meanwhile, PvP lets you battle against a friend to help increase your skill and experience.


Hello Hero will be available as a free download on iOS, Android and Facebook this fall. You can watch an English trailer for the game above.
