Images of From Software’s PS3 exclusive adventure 3D Dot Game Heroes have been floating around for a few weeks now, but I’ve held off on mentioning it until now — until we got a better sense of how exactly it’d play, and now’s that time.
You’ll grasp almost immediately what to expect via the video above: it’s essentially precisely the game I called for last December, Tibori’s 2-plus-one-D Dotter Dotter pixelcrafts come to life in what looks to be as close to a Zelda tribute (straight down to the rhythms of its theme song) to ever land on a Sony console.
On top of that, the game will feature a full 3D pixel editor for your hero — Qblock style — and the massively oversized weaponry you can catch a glimpse of above (which andriasang shows off in better detail, alongside its low-bit vistas), in what could be one of the best next-gen tributes to first-gen gaming.
The game’s due for release in November in Japan, and while it hasn’t been officially announced for the West just yet, the stilted English intro in the trailer is a good sign that From has its sights set for wider release in the future.
