Publisher NIS America has been continuously updating the website for their upcoming story adventure title, The Cruel King and the Great Hero. Their Twitter account has occasionally shared news about the game, such as character profiles and music clips. Further, various characters are highlighted on the website, like the princess of the Human Kingdom, Flora, and the Demon King alongside his servant, Cybat.
The Story tab of the website houses synopses on beginner facets like the Prologue while alluding to later aspects. Lastly of note is the System tab, which contains numerous bits of gameplay info. There is a hefty degree of mechanical-related information detailed, so curious parties should delve into it.
Players can interact with friendly monsters facing their fair share of plights, leading to helpful info. Moreover, alongside distinct companions boasting practical abilities, there are collectibles for bonus content.
The Cruel King and the Great Hero features a storybook-inspired art style by childhood storybooks. The project is written and illustrated by Sayaka Oda, who also worked on The Liar Princess and The Blind Prince.
In the title, players witness a young girl, Yuu, being raised by a dragon and the adventures that they share daily. It’s almost adorable to see the two interact, but you know they will face some trials throughout the narrative. She dreams of becoming a hero like her father, so she goes on many adventures. As the player explores the areas, it’ll be possible to find hidden items. In addition, they will unlock illustrations, character profiles, and other goodies for the game gallery.
The Cruel King and the Great Hero is releasing for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on March 1, 2022.
