Acquire is pushing the Class of Heroes series big time by associating it with pop singers and making a mini anime. Pre-order Class of Heroes 2 in Japan and you get an anime DVD as a gift.
J-Pop group Sphere does the voices for the four anime characters. They also sing the game’s theme song, “Dangerous Girls”. These are typical promotions in Japan, but as a publisher Acquire rarely backs their games with a big marketing boost.
Sphere will also talk about the game’s theme and world on a special Class of Heroes radio show. A pop group acting as the official spokespeople for a dungeon crawling RPG? I wonder if this is a first.
Either way Acquire is investing heavily in Class of Heroes 2. It seems like Acquire has high hopes that Class of Heroes will graduate as one of their key franchises.
