Heroes of Ruin uses StreetPass to create an inventive in-game Traders Network where players can buy and sell rare and powerful items picked up in battle. With an ever-changing inventory updated from each player passed in public, character strengths and abilities can be greatly enhanced through accessing items from other players games. Outside of the game, Heroes of Ruin makes use of SpotPass to reward players with rare one-off items or unique challenges through local wi-fi hotspots. The official Heroes of Ruin community website will reward players further with daily challenges and quests available to complete in-game. With social media functionality, the site will also give players a platform to meet other gamers, swap ideas and items and team-up in-game. peace is threatened when one of the Lords, Ataraxis, ruler of the city of Nexus, is taken ill by a deadly curse. A call
is sent out, promising rewards beyond measure for anyone who finds a cure.
Four mercenaries, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and motivations answer the call. One uses forbidden spells to
rain death on her foes, one has guns and bombs to blast his way through, another has a mighty sword capable of slicing
through entire packs of enemies, and one other gains strength from savagely tearing through anything that stands in his way
with brutal, bladed fists.
These unlikely heroes can choose to create a fearsome alliance or venture forth from the city alone. Beyond the safety of the
city the land is filled with strange and dangerous creatures, but none as deadly as the evil force behind the curse, which the heroes must eventually confront and destroy.
