One Way Heroics Plus and Hakoniwa Explorer Plus Will Be Coming To Nintendo Switch

Shacked up in an empty house in the Firsttown suburbs, our hero has a thing for taking down monsters. Talk to the townspeople to expand your field of exploration and freely traverse the land as you like.

However you want to proceed, and however you want to take the monsters down is all up to you. Defeat the bosses awaiting you in each region and rack up the achievements for a little something special…

The roster of lethal monsters include such superstars as the pervy Rockit, who’ll melt the threads of your clothes in all the right places; and Dryad, who attacks by wrapping you up in her legs. Together with Sukumizu, your random guidance-dispensing partner in adventure, make your way through a variety of dungeons in this wiggly, peculiar pixel art 1/4-view world.

A world controlled by darkness.

In game, the darkness constantly advances from the left side of the screen, swallowing up the map.

If you are swallowed by the darkness, it’s game over. You cannot turn back.

The screen will continue to scroll right even while shopping or fighting enemies. You must keep advancing and save the world. In One Way Heroics, if the player moves or attacks enemies will do the same. In essence, it is a rogue-like game.

To clear the game, you must defeat the Demon Lord, who will appear after a set time.

One round of play is around 30 minutes play time, and some parts of your legend carry over into the next round.

Starting off as a free PC game, then being released as One Way Heroics and One Way Heroics Plus the game became a cult classic. Now it has finally come to the Nintendo Switch!

See if you can overcome the challenges of this one way adventure.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
