Nippon Ichi Software has shared a new concept trailer that tells the sweet story of Warui Ousama to Rippa na Yuusha, also known as The Evil King and the Honorable Hero.
Warui Ousama to Rippa na Yuusha stars a little girl named Yuu, who is the daughter of a noble hero who defeated the King Dragon to save the world. The dragon once ruled the world but lost his powers after his defeat at the hands of Yuu’s father. The hero decided to show the dragon mercy and let it live after their intense battle. They both ended up becoming unexpectedly close friends as the beast’s terrifying nature softened over time. However, one day the hero appeared with a grave wound and a baby in his arms. He asked the King Dragon to raise and take care of his daughter as his dying wish, and the once terrifying beast obliged.
The story revolves around Yuu going on adventures as the dragon watches over her. However, there are hints about the girl being destined to be the one to defeat the King Dragon. If it’s anything like the creator Sayaka Oda’s previous game, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince, we can expect it to hit us right in the feels.
The trailer doesn’t show the game’s battle system, but it features a simple turn-based system similar to in the Paper Mario games. You can get a closer look at its cute battles in our previous report.
