Class of Heroes 2G Limited Edition for PlayStation®3 Physical Edition
10.17.14 UPDATE: The game passed Sony QA today! Next week we will get our manufacturing timeframe. We can't wait for you to check this out (especially the dual-screen play!).
10.13.14 UPDATE: Game is still in final Sony QA. We've completed internal QA on this submitted version without problems. Manual, packaging, holograms, etc are ready to go, so we're just waiting on approval for the code to make the discs. Keep your fingers crossed - we're almost there!
PRIOR UPDATE: Due to a very hard to reproduce bug, we had to do a tedious bug hunt and another round of QA which delayed us for about 4 weeks. The game is scheduled to complete what we hope is the final round of QA and receive manufacture approval from Sony the week of 10/5. The packaging (revised again) is ready to go, so we should finally be in manufacture very soon. We'll keep you posted as we close in on manufacture and shipping. Thanks for your patience!
Class of Heroes 2G presales are now closed! Thanks to all who participated. We'll be updating the site as we move through the phases of the manufacturing process and Final QA. And for those of you that missed out on a physical copy, the PSN release will slake your PS3 dungeon crawling thirst. We'll put up the date for that when it's slotted by Sony.
Some of you have asked about details of Class of Heroes 2G and what makes it different than the PSP version. The opening song and video is using the license we negotiated for the PSP version, but is now in high resolution. The Japanese version's original song is also licensed and user-selectable. The game also has giant all-new labyrinth called the "Dark Gate", weather effects (snow, rain, etc), a host of brand new monsters, and new music. Finally, this game features the very cool first-of-its-kind-in-PlayStation® RPGs Dual-Screen play feature where a PSP or Vita can be used as a controller and their screen will display additional information relevant to what's happening on the PlayStation®3 screen. It's a very exciting, but completely optional feature (fans can still play with a plain Dualshock if they wish) we hope to see in many other RPGs soon! Check out the video below that demonstrates the feature, and be sure to select 1080p with the gear icon, then make the video full screen to see the details on the PSP/Vita screen more clearly.
PlayStation Vita Giveaway Results!
To celebrate the fact that Class of Heroes 2G is the first PlayStation®3 RPG to take advantage of dual screen play when you use a Vita or PSP as the controller, we gave away a PlayStation®Vita every week to one lucky winner chosen from all the CoH2G presales that week and the weeks prior. Here are the winners chosen that will receive their prize when their Class of Heroes 2G physical copy is delivered.
This completely awesome giveaway is thanks to the goodhearted gamers at MonkeyPaw Games and GAIJINWORKS and is not sponsored or endorsed by Sony. We did this on our own to make four fan's lives even more awesome.
