Little Town Hero releasing for PC via Steam on June 30

A Steam page has appeared for Little Town Hero, showing that the town-life RPG will release for the platform on June 30. The game is marked to be self-published by Game Freak.

Little Town Hero is also getting retail editions for both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on June 23 in North America and June 26 in Europe, published by NIS America. The game originally released as a digital-only title for Nintendo Switch last October.

We came away from Little Town Hero a bit mixed in our original review, but it looks like plenty more people will be able to check out the game for themselves later this month as it releases for new platforms.


Here's the Steam store description for the game:

Got any ideas, hero?

The story is set in an isolated village on the edge of the world.
The only gate leading outside is heavily guarded by a castle, and the villagers are not allowed to leave.
Most of the villagers don't give it a thought, and happily go on with their everyday lives.
However, the protagonist is a little different from the others - he wants to see the world outside.
One day, a "Monster" appears in the village, shocking everyone because until then, no one knew such creatures existed.
The protagonist is able to fight it using a mysterious Red stone he found in the coalmines.
In the course of his defense of the village, he gradually unravels secrets of how the stones and the monsters came to be…

Unlike most RPGs, there is no need to fight weak monsters repeatedly to level grind in "Little Town Hero".
Instead, you will need to have a good strategy to fight each boss monster one on one.
...Will the protagonist live the adventure he craves and escape the humdrum village life?

  • A challenging battle system which relies heavily on coming up with new Ideas and strategies.
  • Compact story progression designed with the busy gamer in mind.
  • Soundtrack by Toby Fox, composer of the background music for UNDERTALE.
