Hot-Blooded Magic Story turns Kunio into a legendary hero. He’s joined by three RPG archetypes – a warrior with light equipment, a knight, and a mage. Characters have different special attacks depending on what weapon (sword, staff, throwing item or bare hand) they have equipped. The mage can use spells like summoning a ghost, Fireball, Invisibility, and Whirlwind. Altogether, Hot-Blooded Magic Story has more than 40 skills.

Being a role playing game, Hot-Blooded Magic Story has loot to collect too. You can find 60+ items like the Ghost Sword which damages ghost, but is ineffective against tangible enemies and the Pig-Headed Old Man’s Cane that hits an enemy with lightning.


Hot-Blooded Magic Story has over 100 quests like recovering lost items (read: fetch quests) and eliminating monsters.


Arc System Works plans on releasing Hot-Blooded Magic Story as a Nintendo eShop download on April 30 for 994 yen plus tax.
