The PS4 version, which will be handled by Japanese publisher Rainy Frog, will release physically on April 23, alongside a physical version of the Nintendo Switch original.
According to Famitsu, the PS4 version will also be available digitally and will include a new easier difficulty mode.
Originally released for Nintendo Switch in October, Little Town Hero is a turn-based RPG which takes place in a town overrun by monsters.
So far Gear Project has resulted in HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant and Giga Wrecker, all of which released after 2012.
Programmer and director Masayuki Onoue told VGC in 2019 that by taking breaks from the flagship Pokémon series, Game Freak’s creators can return to the franchise “refreshed” and improve the series with experience gained.
In North America, a physical collector’s edition for the Switch version of Little Town Hero has been announced.
The ‘Big Idea Edition’ from NIS America contains a collector’s box, art book, pin set, official soundtrack and poster for $49.99. The bundle is available for pre-order now and will release in spring 2020.
