Spike Chunsoft will launch PlayStation 4 and PS Vita rogue-like RPG Mystery Chronicle: One Way Heroics in North America this summer via the PlayStation Store with cross-buy support, the developer announced. The PS4 and PS Vita game is a remake of Smoking Wolf’s Windows PC game One Way Heroics. When it comes to North America, purchasing one version will give you the second one for free.
In Mystery Chronicle: One Way Heroics, players control a hero who must save a world that’s about to end. This is an autoscrolling roguelike JRPG, forcing you to stay on the move. Too much time spent exploring can bring the Demon Lord’s wall of death on the lefthand side of the screen closer to you, ending your game. Should you fall in battle, the points and gear you earned will be stored in the Dream Vault. These can be used in a subsequent game to better equip your new hero and unlock additional classes, abilities and NPCs for him or her. The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita version includes classes inspired by Danganronpa and Shiren the Wanderer. You can watch the announcement trailer of the game below.
There’s also a social element to Mystery Chronicle: One Way Heroics. There’s a PvP mode, which will allow you to pit your hero or heroine against another player. Passwords can be collected and shared with other people to aid their progress. Also, it’s possible to show how you’re doing with a quick Twitter update.
It will be interesting to see if this game will perform well in the summer, with the likes of No Man's Sky and Star Ocean 5 that are also scheduled to release on summer. Also, will Spike Chunsoft also release a physical copy of the game, since they only announced that it will be available in PS Store on summer? That remains to be seen. Regardless, the game looks interesting and I might give it a try on my PS vita. How about you guys?
