Today Nippon Ichi Software released a new trailer for its upcoming game Warui Oosama to Rippana Yuusha, which translates as “The Evil King and The Great Hero.”
The trailer shows both story and gameplay, providing a look at the mechanics that will prove familiar to those who played The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince.
We see how you can interact with the protagonist’s companions and use their dedicated actions to do things you can’t do.
Konko the snow fox can dig up items from the ground. Sakasa can use her knives to drop items too high for the hero to reach. Princess Flora can use her umbrella to float riding the wind and over obstacles.
They will also become stronger with time, acquiring new abilities. The hero will be able to slash enemies with a sword. Konko can attack enemies in a line. Sakasa can use a wind power to attack all enemies and quicken up allies. Flora will increase her avoidance.
You can check the trailer out below.
The Evil King and The Great Hero will be released in Japan for PS4 and Nintendo Switch on on June 24.
