Heroes of Ruin is the exact kind of game I've been craving for my 3DS lately. I've been wanting a fantasy co-op action-RPG that's all about looting for weapons and armor to make your character as badass as possible. And as the trailer shows off, there's a ton of customization. I also really like that there's choice between using blades or guns. That's always a nice touch.
I'm a bit curious to find out how the looting will work with your online co-op partner though. Like, if the loot will be split or it will all be first-come first-serve for example. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. I'm a sucker for these types of games though. Especially when all the environments are all colorful and one enemy type looks like a character out of the show Street Sharks. Hopefully we'll get a more concrete release date for Heroes of Ruin other than "sometime this year."
