Atlus Announces Class of Heroes for PSP

Prospective students encouraged to buy textbooks and swords early

What do you think of when someone, some random stranger, says the term "dungeon-crawler?" Well, aside from, "Why exactly is a stranger talking to me about video games?" or, "This person seems a little strange," your next thoughts might include: first-person RPG action, deep character and party customization, a fun premise, a story that you get to tell as much as it is told for you, etc.

Those would all be correct, of course, if you're talking about the upcoming dungeon-crawler for PSP, Class of Heroes. And, like all good RPGs, you'd only be scratching the surface. In the grand tradition of first-person RPG classics like Etrian Odyssey, Class of Heroes puts you in a world where everyone wants to become the next great adventurer, out in search of monsters to slay and treasure to uncover.

The twist with Class of Heroes is that you're actually a student in an academy for adventurers, and each subject mastered and quest solved is a step towards your graduation into full-fledged dungeon masterdom. What's more, you'll be hard-pressed to find a handheld RPG with more content than Class of Heroes: over five hundred character possibilities, over a thousand items to collect or craft, hundreds of foes to defeat, and over 80 hours of hardcore, tried-and-true gameplay translate into a heck of a lot of RPG goodness. Worried about battery life? Don't be; you can save at any time. How's that for convenient.

Class of Heroes opens enrollment on April 7th. Don't forget your lunchbox.
