You could call 3D Dot Game Heroes a “retro-Zelda clone”, but based on this preview it looks like so much more. ATLUS is known for making “Old-School” RPGs like the Persona series and Disgaea, but this game take refines that philosophy and takes it in a completely different direction. Combining classic NES-style adventure RPG gameplay with snarky and satirical attitude, 3DGH truly looks like more than most retro-gamers could hope for these days.
Luckily, ATLUS’ retro-satire is on the way. 3D Dot Game Heroes hits shelves on May 11’th.
