Heroes of Ruin Class SkillsAnd how loot trading works.10.20.11 - 8:15 PM
Square Enix are currently in the process of developing a co-op action RPG called Heroes of Ruin
for the Nintendo 3DS. If this is the first you've heard of the title then you might want to check out Liz's E3 preview
A few new details have emerged today; mainly centered around character skills. The maximum level of a character will be 30. There are four classes in the game and each has their own individual skill tree with 15 skills. These are broken up into five different categories that focus on something slightly different. The Vindicator class, for example, has a category called 'Sentinel' which places more emphasis on defensive skills.
On a slightly different note, there's some slightly disappointing (though not unexpected) news about loot sharing. Finding loot is a major part of Heroes of Ruin, but you won't be able to trade it between your own files. Luckily, you can trade items to another 3DS to you could enlist the aid of a friend to trade your items back and forth between your files.
Heroes of Ruin is expected for release sometime in early 2012. Be sure to check out our gallery below for the latest screens!
