«©NCSX» Humans and demons have warred against each other for five centuries. Satan has grown tired of the battles and he's started to cast a devastating magical spell to obliterate the world. Before that happens however, a party of valiant heroes has 30 seconds to rise up, defeat the demons, and save the world from certain doom.
To enforce the 30-second rule, a timer on the top of the screen keeps track of how much time has elapsed in each bite-sized portion of the game. To reset the clock, players may run into towns and stop in front of a codger statue to gain additional seconds. The exploration sequences are viewed from an overhead perspective while battle sequences shift the view to a side scrolling interlude where monsters are mowed down by barreling forward. The visual style of the game hearkens back to the 8-bit heyday but with 32-bit gloss. Preorders for the Japanese PSP import Yuusha 30 are welcome to ship on May 28, 2009 at JPY4200 or US$45.90 from NCS.
