January 14, 2010 // 2:56 pm - Today Southpeak Games European PR Manager Rob Burman has announced that 3D Dot Game Heroes for PS3 is coming to Europe.

To quote: I'm here to announce a brand new PlayStation 3 exclusive: 3D Dot Game Heroes - a nostalgic wonder-fuelled time-travelling trip back to the glory days of 8-bit gaming. And it's coming to Europe this May. Rejoice!

3D Dot Games Heroes takes its inspiration from classic role-playing games released on ancient consoles that are now appearing on the Antiques Roadshow.

In fact, people who played videogames throughout the 1980s will fall to their knees and weep when they see Dot's many homages to the games that defined their childhood (I've seen it happen). It's a virtual trip down memory lane complete with swords, wizards and monsters.





However, this is modern retro, so it has splendid PlayStation 3-powered graphics that give traditional sprites a new 3D lease of life, simple pick-up-and-play controls, which hark back to a time when you didn't need a load of buttons just to open your inventory, and a fun tongue-in-cheek storyline with plenty of links to the past... ahem.

But, one of the greatest features of 3D Dot Game Heroes (and there are plenty to choose from) is the sweet character creation system so you can make your own blocky hero. Whether you fancy becoming an adventuring cat, a hard-as-nails robot, or a 'tribute' to a well known videogame character, you just have to build them using the straight forward and intuitive system. Or you can pick from one of the ready-made characters, who each have their own unique traits.

Well, that's it for now, so here's that important release info again: 3D Dot Game Heroes will be released by SouthPeak Games on PlayStation 3 in Europe this May.
