NIS America is releasing an updated version of Game Freak’s Little Town Hero on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 this summer.
Game Freak is best known for developing the mainline games in the popular Pokemon franchise, but the studio occasionally branches out with new IP such as Pocket Card Jockey and Tembo the Badass Elephant.
Last year, Game Freak brought the broadly well-received RPG Little Town Hero to Nintendo Switch. The game is now coming to PlayStation 4 in a revised form and is also getting a limited physical release on both platforms.
The Little Town Hero Big Idea Edition comes to North America on June 2, Europe on June 5, and Australia and New Zealand on June 12. It includes a physical copy of the game plus an art book, poster, lapel pin set, and official soundtrack from composers Hitomi Sato and Toby Fox of Undertale fame.
Addressing some of the complaints directed at the game on its initial release, the updated version of Little Town Hero features an easy mode that lowers the attack and defence of enemy Dazzits.
NIS America is also running a fan contest to choose the reversible cover for physical release. You can make your vote count, right here.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
