Set on the Planet Armon, Hello Hero lets players select a team of five heroes, combating evil forces with a wide variety of skills and weapons, from sharp swords and powerful magic to banjos and maracas. Whether it's a guitar-playing cactus, a seductive succubus or a spear-wielding shark, players will be able to form their teams from a diverse selection of heroes, adjusting their gameplay style while amassing great wealth that can be used to build up combat statistics or obtain more heroes.
Hello Hero features more than 200 unique characters that can be used to take on about 90 mission stages, Boss Raids and Player vs. Player arenas spread across a variety of environments including forests, oceans and dungeons. Every three days, players will be able to participate online together against a Boss, combining their teams' strengths and abilities to win epic battles. Additional characters designed for North America will be made available in the future.
