The Longest Five Minutes ticks west

Time critical is a big thing in the business world, but rarely do RPGs rely on down to the second timing. 30 Second Hero on the PSP changed all that, and I guess it was part of the inspriation for SYUPRO-DX's new RPG, hitting Japan today.

We get to run against the clock in 2017, likely digital only, with The Longest Five Minutes recounting the life of a hero during his final encounter with an epic and evil Overlord. As the story unfolds, the conversations you have with your party and the Overlord will unlock memories of the hero’s journey. Each memory plays out in classic 8-bit RPG style, and the outcome of those memories affect your party in their final battle.

About the Story: Our hero faces the origin of all evil, the Overlord himself, but suddenly loses all memories of his adventure. His finishing moves, the name of his hometown, and even the reason he's trying to defeat the Overlord in the first place, all gone. Our hero feels as though he's letting his allies down... In the midst of battle, his allies’ words and the Overlord's taunting triggers flashbacks, bringing his memories back piece by piece.
