NIS America has let us know they’ll be bringing The Longest Five Minutes to North America and Europe next year! This is a very interesting game that will surely remind you of Half Minute Hero, which is always a good thing! Check the game’s teaser trailer below, and click after the break to see the first batch of screens for this release!
Originally developed by Nippon Ichi Software and SYUPRO-DX, The Longest Five Minutes will take you inside the mind of a hero during his final encounter with an epic and evil Overlord. As the story unfolds, the conversations you have with your party and the Overlord will unlock memories of the hero’s journey. Each memory plays out in classic 8-bit RPG style, and the outcome of those memories affect your party in their final battle.
Our hero faces the origin of all evil, the Overlord himself, but suddenly loses all memories of his adventure.
His finishing moves, the name of his hometown, and even the reason he’s trying to defeat the Overlord in the first place, all gone. Our hero feels as though he’s letting his allies down…
In the midst of battle, his ally’s words and the Overlord’s taunting triggers flashbacks, bringing his memories back piece by piece. Our hero tries to regain his priceless memories before it’s too late, but the Overlord stands before him, his power unyielding!
What can happen in The Longest Five Minutes!?
We look forward to hearing more about the game straight from NIS America, and we’ll be sure to share all news with you so be sure to stick around at PS3blog.net!
