Little Town Hero 'Big Idea Edition' now available in North America

Hey, what's the big idea?!

In an isolated village on the edge of the world, a young boy named Axe dreams of seeing the outside world, although everyone is forbidden from venturing beyond the town borders. However, everything changes when a giant monster suddenly attacks the village, and Axe discovers he can fight using the power of a mysterious stone that turns his ideas into attacks. Through his trials of defending the village, he gradually unravels secrets of how the stones and the monsters came to be.

Anyone can become a hero! Dive into the world of the young, budding hero, Axe, as he rises up to defend his home, gains the support of fellow villagers, and uncovers the truth behind the giant monster attacks. With the unique "Ideas" combat system, you can defend against enemies, plan your attacks, and adapt on the fly without needing to grind! This charming title features game design by Game Freak and music composed by Toby Fox (UNDERTALE).

Little Town Hero updated to Version 1.2.0

Not a single detail shared

Little Town Hero has gotten an update. The game has been bumped up to Version 1.2.0, but there's a problem. We have no clue what the update does. It seems there's no mention of the update anywhere, and no patch notes have been released. We'll try to hunt down details and add them to this post.

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

Little Town Hero: Big Idea Edition's easy mode detailed

Easy peasy

Little Town Hero is heading to retail with the Little Town Hero: Big Idea Edition, and that version is going to include some tweaks and enhancements. One of those new features is an easy mode, which you can find the official description of below.

For a more laid-back experience, the all-new Easy Mode lowers the attack and defense of enemy Dazzits, and Special Effects from enemies show up less often.

It's likely this content will also be added to the regular version of Little Town Hero, but we haven't heard specifics on that yet.

GoNintendo "2019 Backlog" Reviews - Little Town Hero

A hero arises

2019 might be over, but we've still got some backlog reviews to work through! Today we have a review of Little Town Hero from NintenDaan. See what he thought of the game below!

______________________________________________

While I can understand the disappointment some people have, I adore the original games that Game Freak makes. Games like Pocket Card Jockey and GIGA WRECKER offer up fresh ideas, which is what I personally prefer when gaming. While not every idea of theirs is a winner, I think discussing the game's creation can be just as interesting. That approach to Game Freak's work applies perfectly to Little Town Hero, the latest original offering from the developer.

Little Town Hero is quite unique, making it hard to wrap your head around. The game is fairly complex, and doesn't do anything to ease newcomers into the experience. If you're willing to dedicate the time this game requires, you should find Little Town Hero to be quite charming when all's said and done.
