Game Freak will self-publish its RPG on Steam.
After initially releasing on the Nintendo Switch, Game Freak is bringing Little Town Hero to Steam. The PC version will launch on June 30th, which is about one week after its PS4 release. Unlike the Switch and PS4 versions, Game Freak will be self-publishing the PC version.
The story follows a young protagonist in an isolated village. Why aren’t the residents allowed to leave and what’s up with the massive castle guarding the sole gate of entry? Before those questions can be answered, a Monster suddenly appears and disturbs the village’s peace, prompting our hero into action.
Little Town Hero received criticism over the complexity of its combat system which focused on Ideas and using them in battle. At least the soundtrack is fairly good thanks to Undertale’s Toby Fox serving as a composer. Stay tuned for more details on the Steam version in the coming weeks, including any potential improvements.
