During BEKRAF Game Prime 2018, Agate showcased their upcoming game, Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story. I was one of the lucky ones to try it out. Here is the Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story first impression.
If you have not known already, Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story is an RPG developed by Agate. It focuses on building a school and training students to become the best in combat and magic.
This is a very special game for Agate because it marks their first game ever to be released on console. The game will release for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and also PC later this year.
When I first got my hands on the game, it felt like I was playing Theme Hospital or The Sims. Because of the camera angle and the view reminiscence of the two legendary games.
Similar to The Sims which is a simulation game, you get to build all kinds of things. From rooms to decoration. In Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story, you get to do something similar. Building classrooms, cafeteria, dormitories, and training grounds are something you can do here.
However, what’s different from The Sims is that this game has a fantasy style approach. Not to mention, combat! To be precise, I was most curious about the combat gameplay.
So I tried to send out a party and went on a quest. The mission was very easy, but the execution was rather harsh. The game uses real-time battles. This lets you switch between character classes to better outsmart the enemy.
However, against a low-level enemy, I had a hard time in actually syncing my 4 party members. But eventually, if I play more, I definitely will get the hang of it.
In terms of the game design, I feel that Agate has put in a good work. There are a lot of items that are available and come in various different forms.
Agate Studio along with publisher PQube announced its newest game, Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story. It will releae later this year.
So far, my Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story first impression is that. Until I get my hands on the game and play a couple of hours, then I can comment on whether it is worth playing or not.
But whether is it worth it waiting for the game to be released? Yes.
