Posted on July 9, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

In last week’s issue of Famitsu, the magazine covered information pertaining to the characters and battle system. Siliconera provides the details in English, which we’ve rounded up below.

– The game revolves around the friendship between fallen prince who wants to regain his rightful status and a simple part-timer who works at a theme park called “Hero-sama Land”
– The two main characters are The 18th Prince (nicknamed ’18’), and Pochio
– Pochio: the slacking part-timer who’s at Hero-sama Land in order to repay a debt incurred for breaking a vase
– On the Yuishoal Kingdom side, appearing characters will include King Lush, the king and living legend who defeated the Demon Lord in the past
– Mel: 16th Prince in line, who takes every opportunity to laugh at 18, who has fallen from being the next in line to succeed the throne
– Hero-sama Land has an eclectic cast of employees aside from Pochio
– Lua: guiding fairy for both Pochio and the player and is a trusty companion in the journey
– Ruby: shop owner at Hero-sama Land, is a cute girl who has a stingy side, as she’s the one who forced Pochio to pay for the broken vase
– Carl: blacksmith of the Land, and he’s the one in charge of coming up with new weapons for guests to use
– Irma Boss: owner of Hero-sama Land, but despite his position, looks like a bad guy you’d see in a regular RPG
– Paluo: dinosaur-like being who’s a taxidermist and will give you useful parts from monster loot you collect
– Three of the guests at Hero-sama Land covered in Famitsu
– Python: ace of the Gottani Mercenaries, who went there in search of money (that’s what he says)
– Biscuit: star thief of the Kouchner Thieves and went there seeking the treasure supposedly hidden underneath the land
– Viscount Fortran: investigator looking for Biscuit, as she keeps slipping out from under his fingers
– In Work x Work, players will guide Pochio and 18 through a series of dungeons which have branching paths to take
– Players need to give advice to guests and 18, who are unused to battling
– Game starts with choosing a tour to go on, which all have varying participants
– Players are then guided through sets of battles with branching paths
– Battles are mostly set on auto-battle, except for key moments where it is Pochio’s job to step in and give advice
– By doing so, he can get guests fired up, which means skills activate more easily
– By repeating the process through dungeon tours, Pochio can gain treasure and also (perhaps more importantly) his pay
– Pochio gets paid in Starfish
– Starfish is the currency of Hero-sama Land
– Use the cash to buy new weapons for guests, or even buy furniture for his house in the Black Market
