Update (Fri 1st May, 2020 12:45 BST): NIS America has revealed that the Little Town Hero Big Idea Edition – the physical edition set to launch on Nintendo Switch this spring – has been delayed due to “current events”. It will be postponed to 23rd June in North America, 26th June in Europe, and 3rd July in Oceania.
Original Article (Sat 18th Jan, 2020 02:30 GMT): Apart from Pokémon Sword and Shield, Game Freak actually released a few other games last year. One of them was Little Town Hero in October. It ended up being a rather low-key launch and was made available exclusively on the Switch eShop.
That’s all set to change now, though, with NIS America revealing the ‘Big Idea Edition’ of Little Town Hero is coming to the Nintendo Switch this Spring as a physical release. It includes the game, an art book, poster, pin set, official soundtrack, and a collector’s box:
Think big and save the day! Little Town Hero Big Idea Edition is coming to Nintendo Switch in Spring 2020 as a physical release! #LittleTownHero
You can pre-order the ‘Big Idea Edition’ right now from the NIS North American online store for $49.99.
When Little Town Hero was released, we gave it seven out of ten stars in our review and said Game Freak proved that a casual style RPG could still have plenty of imagination, even on a smaller scale.
The game itself is about a boy named Axe who must help protect his village after monsters attack. It also features music by the Undertale creator, Toby Fox.
