About This Game

Valthiria’s mightiest heroes are not born of destiny or prophecy. They were enrolled, trained, and taught in special academies. Hero School Story 2 places you in charge of a hero academy to create the next generation of heroes who will save Valthiria from the dark forces that threaten it. Take command of the faculty, nurture a unique and ever-changing roster of students, forge alliances with the kingdoms who vie for influence, and earn your place among the most prestigious Hero Schools in Valthiria.

Combining the RPG and Simulation genres, in Hero School Story 2 you will manage your students by determining their learning schedules and courses, building their stats and skills to shape them into the heroes you desire. These stats are key when sending your students to fulfill quests from people all over Valthiria, defeating various enemies in strategic turn-based combat and adding to your academy’s renown. Yet there’s no time to rest on laurels – every school year the seniors will graduate and freshmen will enroll, so managing your academy to fit the dynamic roster of students is crucial.

  • Create Your Own Hero Academy

    As Principal of the academy, your task is to allocate your students what classes and courses to learn, shaping them into the heroes you want them to become. Will you focus on magical courses and become a school of great wizards, one for mighty warriors, or perhaps a bit of everything? Your management style will determine the kind of quests you can take. To complete harder quests, you need to build specific rosters to solve the challenges.

  • Plan, Forecast, Execute, Repeat

    Foresight and strategic turn-by-turn decisions are critical to succeed in our unique turn-based combat system. Built around class-based proficiencies and breaking enemy weaknesses, players are rewarded both for bringing an optimal team composition and taking calculated risks in combat. Whether playing it safe or taking the gung-ho way, it’s up to you how to solve the challenges presented.

  • Manage a Dynamic Student Roster

    Despite the lure to focus on caring and honing just the best students, as a Principal it is your duty to ensure that every children taken under the wings of your academy thrive. Students will stay for only three years before they must graduate, and every one of them will affect your academy’s reputation (which will deter gifted students to enroll next year!). So manage your whole student roster well, as focusing on just a select few individuals may gimp you when they inevitably leave the school grounds, as you will be left with those less cared for.

  • Maintain Good Relations with Four Factions in Valthiria

    As the Principal of the academy in Valthiria, it is also your duty to ensure a positive relationship with the four factions of Valthiria throughout the game. Your relationship with them influences the quests available in each faction's territory, and building a solid rapport can unlock unique rewards and quests.

  • A Vibrant Academy Atmosphere

    Maintaining a balance between hard work and leisure is crucial for success at the academy. While your primary responsibility is cultivating a new generation of heroes, it's equally important to create an enjoyable atmosphere for the students to avoid stress. Each season will provide unique opportunities for students to participate in competitions, such as fishing contests in spring and snowman-making contests in winter. The winners of these competitions will receive prizes that can be used to upgrade the academy.

    That's not all! Pets will also be integral to the academy environment, elevating the learning experience. The animals will change each season, further enhancing the excitement of studying.
