Your chums at Square Enix have put up a demo for the 3DS multiplayer RPG Heroes of Ruin on the eShop. Aren't you lucky? The demo takes place in the Elder Forest, where you can faff about questing until you feel like beating up a spirit called Michadelle, the boss of the taster. 

Two of the classes are available, and you can do a spot of customizing too. The Vindicator is a lion fella who takes foes on with his two-handed sword and presumably intimidating roar. He's joined by the Gunslinger, a ranged combatant employing guns, explosives and throwing knives. The Gunslinger is not a lion, however, which might be a deal breaker. 

Heroes of Ruin hits the Nintendo 3DS on July 17, so there's plenty of time for you to grab the demo and see if it's your cup of tea.
