One of the cooler aspects I noticed
in 3D Dot Game Heroes
is the very open character editor. You can design literally any figure your imagination can draw up, and it will be animated in 6 different poses in-game.
Today, in tandem with the game’s launch itself, Atlus launched “Hall of Heroes”: a hub hosted on their website that lets you share and rate characters created by gamers. The designer with the most creative character design will be awarded Amazon credit for video game purchases. You can swing by their website
to get the full information on how to participate, as well as the rules (no copyright infringements obviously).
RVINE, CALIFORNIA--MAY 10, 2010--Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today launched the "Hall of Heroes" character-sharing hub for 3D Dot Game Heroes™ for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, a special section on the upcoming action-adventure game's official website that allows players worldwide to share custom heroes created in the game's powerful character editor.
3D Dot Game Heroes is renowned for how it brings the visual flair of gaming classics from the 8- and 16-bit eras to stunning, current gen life. Using the character editor, gamers can do the same for whatever they build. Moreover, custom creations in 3D Dot Game Heroes don't just look good; they move well, too. Each hero has six different poses to fuel animation, making it incredibly easy to bring any design players can dream up to life!
On top of the fun of creating a one-of-a-kind custom hero to share with fellow 3D Dot Game Heroes players worldwide, Atlus will reward fans who create the best designs with Amazon video games credit! Full details about this limited time promotion are provided on the official "Hall of Heroes" page, as well as in easy-to-follow instructions on how to submit original creations for other players to view, download, and rate. As long as submissions aren't licensed properties or explicit/profane (by Atlus' judgment) in any way, the (3D) possibilities are endless!
3D Dot Game Heroes for PlayStation 3 system releases on May 11, 2010 with an MSRP of $39.99. For more information, check out the official 3D Dot Game Heroes website and click on the "Hall of Heroes" button, or go directly to
