Published by PQube and developed by Agate Studio, Valthirian Arc: Hero School will put you in charge of training young heroes on October 2, 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC worldwide. It’s worth noting that PlayStation 4 players in Europe can get the game a bit earlier though, on September 28, 2018.
Curious about how running a school works? Here’s a trailer.
In addition to being in charge of designing and upgrading elements of the campus, you’ll also have to make every day decisions regarding your behavior management style. As far as RPG elements go, you can send students out on quests (or take control of them directly) and try to create the heroes of tomorrow. Manage your party and graduate the best students to earn rewards for your school, which allows you to attract better candidates and raise better heroes.
While the trailer mentions there are ten unique classes, the official press release only explains the following three core disciplines and six specialized sub-classes:
Knight: Armored students with strong physiques to bear the brunt of melee combat.
- Arc Draconus: Knights who trained with dragons and lived.
- Paladin: Knights who have been anointed to protect others.
Magi: Highly intelligent students who command powerful magic.
- Scholarsage: Magi who study the arcane knowledge of the world.
- Media: Magi who master the arts of healing.
Scout: Stealthy and dexterous students, perfect for hidden strikes.
Arquebusier: Scouts who excel in marksmanship.
Harlequin: Scouts who practice acting and acrobatics.
Valthirian Arc: Hero School will mix tactical RPG adventures with building management when it releases worldwide on October 2, 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
