In the olden days, just about everything was square and blocky; we just didn't have the technology for...well, circles. That's why 3D Dot Game Heroes will put a big smile on the face of all you veterans out there, those who remember the golden age of the industry with a certain nostalgic wistfulness. Check out the gameplay and exploration; it's just so old-school, despite it's admittedly jazzed-up appearance for the new generation. And the exaggeration is downright hilarious, so if you feel like taking a trip down memory lane, keep an eye out for this one.
