People wondering if Work x Work would ever be localized can breath easier. Following a January 2019 trademark by FuRyu for the title “Heroland,” XSEED Games has confirmed it will be releasing the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 RPG outside of Japan under that name. It will be playable at E3 2019, then will be released later in 2019 on both consoles.
Elric, a prince who is eighteenth in line to take the throne, has come to the Heroland amusement park after hearing a demon king lives on the island. There, he meets Lucky, a tour guide who works there. As they go on adventures, they learn there may actually be a demon king. While they work together, they will grow up and mature, developing qualities that will make each of them better people.
Heroland is immediately available in Japan on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 as Work x Work, complete with a free eShop demo. It will be released outside of Japan in 2019.
