Unique “grind-free” turn-based RPG Little Town Hero is set to release on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on June 23, 2020, and developer Game Freak has released a new gameplay trailer to detail what’s in store for players.

In an isolated village at the edge of the world, a young boy named Axe dreams of seeing the outside world, although everyone is forbidden from venturing beyond the town borders. However, everything changes when a giant monster suddenly attacks the village, and Axe discovers he can fight using the power of a mysterious stone that turns his ideas into attacks. Through his trials of defending the village, he gradually unravels secrets of how the stones and the monsters came to be.

Using the power of “Ideas,” players can harness Attack and Defense moves, some of which include special effects. “Izzits” are inactive Ideas; giving an Izzit power turns it into a “Dazzit,” which are activated Ideas usable in combat. Unused Ideas are held in Headspace, but be aware there’s limited space, so players will have to choose their moves wisely. The name of the game is to defeat all the enemy’s Dazzits before your Dazzits break.

Friends can help Axe by either attacking monsters or giving him Ideas. Axe will meet a variety of NPCs throughout the village, giving players plenty of options when it comes to battling monsters.

Developed by Game Freak, Little Town Hero features the music of Undertale‘s Toby Fox. For a more in-depth look into the game’s development, players can also check out an interview with Game Freak’s Masao Taya, linked below.

Both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch will receive a Big Idea Edition, which includes the game, a “Life in Adventure” art book, “Izzit? Dazzit!” poster, “Defender Duo” lapel pin set, “Town Tunes” official soundtrack, and a collector’s box.
