Hyperion Heroes is a RPG for all major consoles released in May 2014. It is an action RPG with gameplay based off Brave Frontier's mechanics.
Ternamesis, the Dark Lord has discovered 3 artifacts; the Ring of Curses, the Armor of Twilight, the Sword of Ancients. He aims to obtain those three artifacts to conquer the world.
John, a swordsman, is hired by a team known as Hyperion Heroes, where they aim to conquer against the evils in the world. They then go around and defeat the monsters.
The gameplay acts like action rpgs similar to Dark Souls and Monster Hunter, where you can control your heroes. At the town, you can forge weapons, and evolve your heroes. Unlike Brave Frontier, the game that is based on, you can control your hero in town, and talk to characters to continue the story or unlock new stages. On solo runs, you can select four heroes to bring into the quests. If all of your heroes faint 3 times, it's game over, with a message saying "You're A Lose", and if you win it says "You're Winner", a reference to Big Rigs.
Evolving heroes requires you to collect several items and pay a cost of gold.
Since this is a pay to play game, there are no micro-transactions or energy stats that recharge over time.
There are 25 regions in the game, each with 30 to 40 stages, and in the stages you form the entire team of the main heroes.
