3D Dot Game Heroes Walkthrough

Chris Morell's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

You’ve heard about natural sword enhancement. Over on the PlayStation.Blog.Europe you can see the most interesting hero in 3D.

Now we know what you REALLY want. An extended in-game walkthrough of 3D Dot Game Heroes. Well, your old pal Aram Jabbari from Atlus was kind enough to swing by our HQ, and prop himself in front of our camera with the game. Now that’s a big-ass sword!

Don’t forget, 3D Dot Game Heroes hits PS3 May 11 for $39.99. But I’m sure you’ll hear from Mr. Jabbari well before then.

Great walkthrough, you really get a feel of the game when watching it. I can’t wait to play the game, as a kid I loved The Legend of Zelda series on the Gameboy Color, so a game like this is definitely worth it.

Uh day 1 for sure…..still no word on pre-order bonuses?

    Still no updates. A bonus item is looking unlikely at this point, but as we’ve said before, the game launches with an attractive $39.99 price point, something we view as a nice bonus. :)

Hells yes! I had no idea it was so much like Zelda. Fantastic price, too!

Ahhh I thought this game would be in S-3D judging from the title.
Then I saw the release date, still thinking it meant S-3D and got all hyped up for a May S-3D PS3 update.
haha, but it might happen it either June or July ;)

DAY 1 for me!!!!

Doesn’t look that interesting to me…but then again neither did Demon’s Souls, and that ended up being my most played game and possibly favorite title of 2009.

I’ll buy this game for it’s price, and appreciation of Atlus and From Software.

Here are 8 of the various loading screens that we know of so far:

Game looks great! Definitely trying to budget my money so I can pick it up in May.

Onarum said:

March 17th, 9:36 am

heh, “dragons consider HIM a boss”, good stuff.

I’ll get this for sure, won’t be day one but eventually, in may I’m already getting red dead redemption, and my budget is limited…

I’m all over this.

On a side note, Chris would you happen to know any word on if/when we will be getting Demon’s Souls Dynamic Theme’s and or Avatars?

Thanks dude!

A great value at $40, especially for a potential “Game of the Year” candidate.

Day 3 for me!!!! =(

March 17th, 9:47 am

Wow, explicit ripoff of the Legend of Zelda from NES.

B-Real206 said:

March 17th, 9:50 am

+1 for the super duper awesome price of 39.99, I will pick this up for sure!!

rAdIOhEad73 said:

March 17th, 9:52 am

So looking forward to this game, I don’t care if is a rip-off of a “N” game. I’ll be playing this on my PS3 day 1!

How hard could it have been to turn off that annoying light which causes the reflection?

    Ouch! As you can tell, I moved the camera about a minute in.

    The light switch was behind a game of demon’s souls, so it would have been the hardest thing ever.

I cant wait for it. Is there a way to exchange our creations of the characters we make to our friends?

Sindred said:

March 17th, 9:57 am

I just want you guys to know that you have my permission to port this to PSP at any point in time.

Day 1 on PS3.

    Glad to hear you got your prize, and thank you for supporting us. Hopefully, the more you hear about 3DDGH, the more you’ll like it!

March 17th, 10:00 am

I did not realize that this game is coming out this May. Consider this a buy

Charles_Surge said:

March 17th, 10:01 am

Yeah, yeah! Atlus rocks!
I will be pre-ordering this sometime because it’s awesome and $40 is a price-point worth supporting.

morningdrive said:

March 17th, 10:04 am

this game looks awesome and I will probably be picking it up till summer just because I am short on cash right now. But you definetly will be receiving my money!

Off-Topic. Is there any word on Persona 5?

tiredminds said:

March 17th, 10:05 am

Already pre ordered. This one looks great!

good afternoon friends

I have several concerns with my ps3 slim, when I use the commands wirelessly connect the ps3 and not have to use more mind to the charging cable that I would like to know happened to me and another question when Introdusca a video game in the ps3 slim I frisa the ps3 slim and I have to turn off and on so you can watch the game. friends like me because I responded to those questions.

This is going to be on the PSN Store right? If so, i just might buy it.

    3D Dot Game Heroes is a full retail product only. It’s bigger than you think, and wouldn’t make a lot of sense as a downloadable game. Hope you’re still interested!

ATLUS…you love us!

OMG OMG OMG over 100 load screens! i am so buying this. I can see myself now sitting there and waiting. AWESOME!!!!!

I have a completely uncreepy and unthreatening man-crush on Aram Jabbari. Don’t tell Kevin Butler.

(BTW PS Blog types, logging in still has issues on Google Chrome. Had to switch to.. *shudder*.. IE)

Downright awesome. Please keep supporting the PS3, Atlus, the console wouldn’t be the same without you.

sdmf4ever said:

I have this already pre-ordered and can’t wait to see how close of a resemblance it is to Zelda gameplay. I am sure there is a lot of similarities, but I believe the game will be able to make it on its own merits with all the newer generation tech implemented into it. The game just looks simply Awesome with a Zelda flair but all in its own way. Taking a somewhat different approach towards a Zelda like game has been a long time coming and I await with glee. The only thing better than this would be if it were coming out on PSP as well. Hopefully, enough people hear about this title and take the plunge because I am sure it will bring back a lot of memories and experiences for some. And, it would be a shame if it didn’t do well…here’s hoping!

So – will the Japanese DLC be included on the disc or are you going to gouge us?

Neil said:

I have my pre-order in.

GiordanoTJ said:

March 17th, 10:43 am

Awesome video! Can’t wait to play this! I’ll pre-order as soon as I have the money (and I hope there will be some pre-order bonuses by the time I do)

phinnv8 said:

March 17th, 10:46 am

The game looks neat and I might get it if there is enough content to justify the $40 price but my main complaint is that HUGE sword makes it look too easy.

SpiritThief said:

March 17th, 10:47 am

No thanks on the video.

I want to explore and break things and build things and break some more things myself:D

NatiGame said:

March 17th, 11:00 am

ohhhhh yeeeeeaaaahhhhhh. Gotta have this Game!!!!!

Thrasher20 said:

March 17th, 11:00 am

I’m going to expect A LOT of Zelda :)
Thank you Atlus, I will definitely buy this game first day :D

Slythex said:

March 17th, 11:03 am

Had this pre-ordered since December.

I should just send Atlus my wallet in the mail. They never fail to impress me.


March 17th, 11:13 am

This I didnt import because I knew atlus was bringing it over. Been dying for this since day 1. They did a gr8 job with demons souls so I know this will be all good. Shame theres no special edition.

You_Out said:

March 17th, 11:15 am

Well Atlus, I think you just found yourself another customer.

How can I say no to this when the game is priced at a whopping $40? That is a steal. I want you guys to give me the answer while I go and preorder this.

adolson said:

March 17th, 11:20 am

I hope they make a Metroid game next!

IrishPete333 said:

March 17th, 11:22 am

I will definitely be getting this, my girlfriend is going to love it also! Thanks Atlus, you guys rock out with your ROOSTER out!

explosive78 said:

March 17th, 11:31 am

If this game had a make your own dungeon feature where others could download your dungeon you made then I would play this game forever! I would love to see something like that as DLC or in a sequel.

Thanks for the video, I can’t wait to pick this up May 11.

PullusPardusUS said:

March 17th, 12:10 pm

Atlus is the most interesting developer in real life.
Stay Awesome my friends.
