Glory of Heracles III version 1.1 patch is out!

If you haven’t played Glory of Heracles III yet, or are planning to replay it sometime, please check out our updated patch for this game. It’s a neat Dragon Quest clone set in Ancient Greek with an amazing story and some legendary plot twists.

So legendary in fact that it got the game’s writer Kazushige Nojima a job at Square as main writer for Final Fantasy VII and many Final Fantasy games onward. He had quite a lot of fans at Square and FFVII director Yoshinori Kitase even asked him to write a mystery plot like the one in Glory of Heracles III.

So if you’re a fan of FFVII you might want to check out this earlier take on some of the same themes. Or if you like Dragon Quest you might enjoy this for the oldschool gameplay. JRPG experts might spot references to early DQ, Mother/Earthbound and Final Fantasy IV. This title really has a special place in JRPG history both looking back at earlier titles in the genre and influencing so many games to come after it.

It is a fan and critics’ favorite even today in Japan. Hopefully with our translation it can get more recognition here in the West as well.
