Sega's Hero Bank 'Money Battle RPG' Listed With Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The official Sega Store on Enterbrain's online shopping site Ebten lists the Hero Bank game with "a Spring 2014 anime adaptation green-lit." The listing adds that the franchise will expand beyond the Nintendo 3DS "money battle role-playing game" with a television anime after the game's March 20 release.
The game centers around Kaito, an elementary school boy who is suddenly burdened with 10 billion yen (about US$100 million) in debt one day. The only way he can pay off the debt is to master "Hero-Gi" (downloaded off the net) and win matches in "Hero Battle," a new-generation cyber sport. The tagline of the game "Change your money with justice!"
Shogakukan's Monthly CoroCoro Comic, the No.1 manga magazine for elementary school boys, already launched a manga tie-in. Popular characters from other manga series in the magazine will be available as "Hero-Gi" in the game itself.
Here is the opening movie for the game:
