In Little Town Hero, players take on the role of a local who lives in a village that has forever been in the shadow of a great castle. When a monster unexpectedly attacks the village one day, the protagonist, with the help of a precious stone, is able to fight it off. Over the course of the game, he unravels the stone’s secrets, helping him throughout the story as he defends the village from various threats.
