The upcoming management simulator puts you in charge of building a magical school for adventurers. As the principal, the objective is to provide a classroom layout, build the appropriate facilities for your students, and bring in the right kind of training material so that you can train kids into capable heroes. There will be 20 buildings in all that you’ll be able to construct, and up to nine different specializations that you can train the kids in.
Once the students get strong enough, you can then assign them to a proper character class, form them into a group and even send them out into the world on a startling adventure. And unlike most schools indoctrinating college students with tons of useless identitarianism that doesn’t in any way, shape, or form prepare them for the real world, you can actually ensure that the kids taken under your wing will receive the proper tutelage to make something of themselves instead of ending up as baristas at a Starbucks or rapists at a gaming news outlet.
You’ll be able to send your students on a variety of missions to earn rewards. The stronger your students become, the more challenging the missions they can go on.
The best part about it is that you actually get to play your as your students in real-time action-oriented combat. This includes basic melee attacks and special magic skills.
The latter half of the trailer shows you what your training and teaching methods can get you when it comes to real-time combat.
It’s a neat concept that actually seems pretty cool. We don’t get many games where you basically run a Hogwartz-style academy and then attempt to turn the students into legendary heroes. Well, technically there was another game like that called Ikenfell, but it was one of those games attempting to appeal to the so-called “Progressives”.
Anyway, if you’re looking to build up a brand of worthwhile adventurers and train them in the ways of being a proper hero, like Chuck Norris, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, or Benny “The Jet” Urquidez, you can look to do so when Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story launches later this year for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC.
