Designer Shoji Masuda is known for some distinctive titles that have generally only been able to garner attention in Japan. Degica Games is finally giving western RPGamers the chance to check out one such title, the anti-RPG Hero Must Die. Again.
Hero Must Die
The hero defeated the demon Guile, but lost his life in the process. Given five more days to put his affairs in order, guide him to the best possible funeral in this anti-RPG where he grows weaker.
Limited Run Games and Degica are partnering for a physical release of Hero Must Die. Again. The game will be available to order from Tuesday.
Degica has announced release dates for Hero Must Die. Again. The anti-RPG will launch for PC, PS4, and Switch later this month.
For most games, ‘Happily Ever After’ is the end of the story. For this one, it’s the whole point of the experience. But will it truly be a ‘happy’ ending, or will the hero expire first?
Hero Must Die is another title that our man in Japan figured would stay entirely under his remit. That turns out to not be the case as Degica is bringing the game to PC worldwide next year.
