Dates Announced for Hero Must Die. Again
Degica announced that Hero Must Die. Again will launch for PC and PlayStation 4 on February 26, 2020, with its Nintendo Switch release following a day later on February 27, 2020. Hero Must Die was originally released for mobile phones in Japan in 2007 before being remade for PlayStation Vita in 2016. The new version of the game is a remaster of the PlayStation Vita release and will be the first time the game is available in English.
Hero Must Die is designed and written by Shoji Masuda, who also worked on Linda³ and Oreshika. It follows a hero who defeats the demon Guile, only to die in the process, with his spirit losing his memories of the one most dear to him. As a reward for his heroics, he is given five days to put his affairs in order, trying to determine which of the eight heroines is his dearest, but as those days go by, he gets progressively weaker. Those looking to read more about the game can check out Michael Baker’s impression of the Japanese PlayStation Vita version.
I’m tempted by this one; its premise is fascinating.
I wonder if the Demon Lord Guile told Hero to “Go home and be a family man!”
