Game Freak says it wanted to condense the fun of large-scale RPGs into a shorter and more compact title for Little Town Hero

Little Town Hero is quite different from the RPGs Game Freak is known for. The company’s Pokemon titles can be meaty affairs with many hours of gameplay, yet this new Switch title is taking a different approach.

Director Masao Taya spoke about the inspiration behind Little Town Hero in the latest issue of Game Informer. The project was about condensing the fun of large-scale RPGs into a shorter and more compact title, he said.

Taya’s full words:

“We grew up playing these really expansive RPGs where you’re on huge adventures that take you all over the place. But now you’re an adult, and maybe you don’t have as much time to play so many games like that. Condensing all the fun of those large-scale RPGs into a smaller, shorter, compact package was the initial idea for a game.”

Little Town Hero is out now for Switch as an eShop download.
