    This is gino from HeatPot Games. I would like to introduce our upcoming game -- Hero Emblems.
    It is a JRPG that mixes "Side scrolling beat' em up" and "Match-3" features.

    Here is the brand new trailer of our game :D:D:D

    We have shown our game at Tokyo Game Show's Indie Game Area 2013 and Casual Connect Asia's Indie Prize 2014.
    If you were there, perhaps you have some impression of our game.

    Compared with other puzzle RPGs, the biggest feature of our game is to let you experience an old-school console JRPG on mobile devices.
    We try to put JRPG elements into our game, such as the story ,PCs/NPCs' characteristic and in-game cutscenes.
    About the battle system, we try to build a turn-based match-3 action system to experience the beat' em up.

    It is a paid game. No IAP, No Ads, No need for network connection.
    It will be released in Jan. 8, 2015.

    Here are game features:
    ►Classical JRPG style adventures
    Complete presentation the traditional JRPG world and story-driven quests. Seamless transitions between the battle scene and cutscene let you enjoy the fun of the console JRPG experience.

    ► Unique turn-based battle to offer the beat' em up experience
    Launch combo attacks, defense, healing by matching rule.

    ► Unleash the power of skill emblems
    Skill emblems can be generated by matching more emblems, allowing you to use the skills of your character to a new level.

    ►A variety of attack debuffs
    Some Monsters would attack with debuffs, such as poisoning, sealing, freezing, petrifying. These different debuffs will be displayed distinctively on the tiles interface. Players can remove these directly, by matching with the debuffed emblems or using skills to remove.

    ► Big Adventure World
    Bravely traverse into dungeons, wilderness, caves, and cross the ocean to visit the new continents in the fantasy world. In the journey, you will meet different personalities NPC, and visit a variety of village to purchase the new equipments and skills.

    ►Change Emblems & Learn Skills
    Throughout the adventure you will get to pick up all kinds of emblems and learn different skills. You should complete your adventure with the best combinations!

    ►Choose the cross roads of stages!? Choose the fate!? What will the ending be like?

    ►No IAP! No Ads!

    Here are some animated gifs (iPhone 6) & screenshots (iPad)

    Thanks, kenken11.
    It is about 4 heroes' adventures.
    So only 4 heroes and each hero has his/her own class - Fighter/Paladin/Witch/Cleric
    But we translate the class to emblem wielder - Sword/Shield/Magic/Recovery Emblem.
    It is a special design to fit the match-3 action system.

    The heroes would grow the power by level up , changing emblems, and learning skill.

    Looks awesome.

    I was skeptical watching the trailer because for some reason my mind immediately thought: too good not to be free to play garbage....and then you said it's a premium game.

    Looking forward the release!!!

    Thanks, jgainsbrugh, Echoen, Pitta.

    We are a 2-man (brothers) team, this is our first game since being indie.
    We have developed it about 2 years in full time.

    We target the players that would like the classic console JRPG.
    The player's characters go adventure in a wide world map with random encounter battle
    and complete the quests with epic boss battle.
    To a certain degree, we treat the iOS device as handheld game console like NDS/PSP/PSV without gamepad.

    We once thought about move to F2P, but we conclude that it should be a paid game to offer the best experiences.

    So we are here because you guys would love a good paid game.:):):)

    looks pretty cool, although you spelled Sword wrong... it was spelled "Swoed" in the trailer -- just an FYI.

    What is the release date?

    awesome! can't wait to try it! I just wanted to make sure you didn't misspell it in the actual game! :)

    We have fixed the typo.

    Our game supports English / Japanese / Traditional Chinese.
    Traditional Chinese version is the native one.
    English and Japanese version are translated by professional translators.
    We think the quality of the translation should be good enough to let players enjoy the game.
    But we also have to admit that we are just a tiny indie team with limited budget, the localizations may still have room for improvement.

    Instabuying this. It's been a while since i got my hands on a premium puzzle rpg that actually hooked me, and everything i read here so far points in the direction that this could be the next.

    Anyone know the price on release yet?

    Looks really neat, totally sold on the whole "no IAP" thing. Would much rather pay a few bucks for a game than deal with grindy freemium games.
