Sega Is Banking On RPG That’s All About The Benjamins


herobank3Sega is working on Hero Bank, an upcoming role playing game that has "money" as a keyword. The most popular spectacle in this world is a cyber sport called Hero Battle. Battlers download hero data that may come from a racer, baseball player or practically anyone and fight in a virtual arena.


Why would anyone jump into a Hero Battle? For money. Lots of money. Part of Hero Bank is fighting in one-on-one fights. The other part is managing the cash you win. Sega calls Hero Bank a battle life RPG and the ultimate goal isn’t to save the world – it’s to be a billionaire.


Hero Bank is scheduled to come out on December 19 in Japan.
