Just so it’s known, I like my cosmo black Nintendo 3DS. Now I’m seeing the flare red 3DS, and I really wish I could have gotten that one instead. Red is my favorite color, so of course I wish I had had that option back during the launch of the system. I’m the impatient type though, so I couldn’t wait.
But for those of you who do not want any of these options, Square Enix has a surprise for you. They have crafted a customly designed 3DS featuring artwork from Heroes of Ruin. This 3DS is so limited, you will be unable to buy it in stores.
They are conducting a contest that ends on the 31st of July. To become eligible to win this system all you have to do is register as a member of the Heroes of Ruin site that I just linked to you. They will select one person at random, so it’s up to you to enter for a chance to win!
It does look pretty cool.
For those who aren’t sure they want to join a site just for a hand held, here is the story behind Heroes of Ruin that can be found on the site.
War raged for over a hundred years until strong, powerful Lords emerged from the fighting to bring a fragile peace to the land. This 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.
