Atlus has dropped off the first localized screens for Silicon Studio's 3D Dot Heroes for the PlayStation 3, and I'd be remiss in my duties if I didn't point out how blocky the graphics are.

Then again, I suppose that is the point. Call it a Zelda ripoff, or call it a tribute to retro gaming, whatever 3D Dot Heroes is trying to do, at least it's doing it in an intriguing and humorous fashion. "You might not know this, but the Flame Temple is full of raging fire!" You don't say.

3D Dot Heroes is making its way to North American PlayStation 3 consoles in May.
