Heroes of Ruin Locked For June; Get To Know Its Mage Class, The Alchitect


This morning, Square Enix and n-Space showed off new footage of Heroes of Ruin, their multiplayer RPG for the Nintendo 3DS. Today’s footage shows off one of the game’s four character classes—a level 20 Alchitect who focuses on spells and enchantments—taking on enemies in one of the game’s areas. The Alchitect is capable of mixing and matching her skills. Take a look below:



The other three classes in Heroes of Ruin are: Gunslinger, Savage and Vindicator. The Gunslinger specializes in ranged attacks and evasion; the Savage is a brute force character; and finally, the Vindicator uses a knight-type character.


Heroes of Ruin will be released on June 26th in North America. Once the game is out, you’ll be able to play it online with three other players and voice chat support.
