Three months prior to the game's tentative Japanese release, Square has updated the official website for its light-hearted PlayStation 2 RPG Hanjuku Hero VS 3D (Hanjuku Eiyuu Tai 3D). The game's protagonist is the young, but incapabale king of the peaceful 2D kingdom of Almamoon. He is being supported by his adviser Sebastian and a female only referred to as "atashi" (me in Japanese). And our spriteful hero needs all the help he can get, after a giant pan appears in the skies above his kingdom and scores of polygonal combatants follow to challenge him and his kingdom's army. System-wise, the series' trademark egg monsters will be back in full force and a large variety. The first one is Eggman, who will attack opponents with his eggchops and kicks.
Hanjuku Hero VS 3D will be released in Japan sometime in June 2003. It remains to be seen whether the game will be available in the US.
