Square Enix has announced Heroes of Ruin for the Nintendo 3DS, a multiplayer adventure centering on four heroes – hence the first part of the title – brought together to do what RPG protagonists do best. Apart from the expected drop-in/drop-out coop play, the game will use the 3DS’ StreetPass and SpotPass functions to create an in-game trading network. This network will update based on other players passed in public, allowing players to access items in each others’ games.
Heroes of Ruin will launch sometime in early 2012, and will be playable at Square Enix’s E3 booth. For the curious, the official site is located hereabouts.
