MonkeyPaw Games and GAIJINWORKS have announced that import J-RPG Class of Heroes II is now available for download in North America via PlayStation Network for $24.99. Developed for PSP and PS Vita, Class of Heroes II is a charming take on the Wizardry-style dungeon crawl games, but with a twist - all the party members are drawn from a pool of newly enrolled students at a Sword and Sorcery School.
The game features 10 classes to choose from: Novice, Fighter, Swordsman, Ranger, Monk, Ninja, Sorcerer, Puppeteer, Idol, and one Mystery Class. Once a team is created, quests are offered and the party can choose their adventure path, unlocking ever more distant and dangerous areas to conquer as they grow in power and confidence. Monster parties can be more than one level deep in a single combat episode, leading to epic encounters of up to 12 or more monsters at a time, where managing a party's ranged and melee skills can be the difference between victorious life and an ignominious death.
