The Rising of Shield Hero: Relive the Animation

Kadokawa Corporation will release an RPG Maker MV-created The Rising of Shield Hero: Relive the Animation game for PC via Steam in September for 2,980 yen, the company announced. It will only support Japanese text.

Here is an (edited) overview of the game, via its Steam page:


The popular anime The Rising of Shield Hero, which is based on the original work by Aneko Yusagi, appears in the form of an RPG!

Not only can you relive famous scenes from the anime, the battle system utilizes the characteristics of the defense-specialized protagonist, and with features such as peddling in the vast land of Melromarc, you can fully enjoy the world of Rising of Shield Hero as a game.

Key Features

  • An Authentic 2D RPG Created with RPG Maker MV – A full-fledged RPG that uses RPG Maker MV as an engine. Its content will satisfy both RPG fans and anime fans alike.
  • Over 700 anime cuts! – The game is enriched with pixelated characters and over 700 anime cuts.
  • A Battle System that Utilizes the Setting! – The battle system allows players to utilize Shield Hero-esque actions such as “Alert” (indicates the enemy’s target), “Capture” (immobilizes the enemy targeting you), and “Protect” (protects an ally from the enemy). By absorbing items you obtain into your shield, you can also learn new skills.
  • A Peddler’s Journey in the Vast Land of Melromarc! – All of the cities and villages that appeared in the anime appear in the game. Travel through the vast world of Melromarc.
