Heroes of Ruin for 3DS shows its MMO-style in this screenshot. Play online or off with 4-players.

Heroes of Ruin by Square Enix for Nintendo 3DS (developed by veteran handheld developer n-Space) is a new action RPG dungeon crawler that features four-player online multiplayer via drop-in/drop-out and uses the 3DS mic to support full voice chat! It’s kind of like an offline MMO, styled in a Massively Multiplayer Online RPG style, but it only supports four-players at any one time, online or off.

The game also features unique social features using SpotPass and StreetPass. SpotPass gives players access to daily challenges that the developers will be publishing for players to tackle for up to a year post-release! While StreetPass allows players to trade items with other players they encounter “in da streets” via the “Traders Network” in the game. Pass someone by who also has the game, and you could get some cool new weapons, items and equipment. Additionally, a community website has been set up that allows players to keep more detailed track of their completed challenges and find additional challenges to tackle. The game also features local multiplayer so you can play offline if you want as well.

Gameplay in Heroes of Ruin looks like this. Be prepared to face titanic bosses!

War raged for over a hundred years until strong, powerful Lords emerged from the fighting to bring a fragile peace to the land. This peace is threatened when one of the Lords, Ataraxis, ruler of the city of Nexus, is taken ill by a deadly curse. A call is sent out, promising rewards beyond measure for anyone who finds a cure. Four mercenaries, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and motivations answer the call. One uses forbidden spells to rain death on her foes, one has guns and bombs to blast his way through, another has a mighty sword capable of slicing through entire packs of enemies, and one other gains strength from savagely tearing through anything that stands in his way with brutal, bladed fists. These unlikely heroes can choose to create a fearsome alliance or venture forth from the city alone. Beyond the safety of the city the land is filled with strange and dangerous creatures, but none as deadly as the evil force behind the curse, which the heroes must eventually confront and destroy.
