The Southeast Asian edition of a role-playing game, Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story, was officially released in Indonesia on March 24 in digital and physical copies for the PlayStation 4 console.

The launch of Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story was the result of collaboration between Bandung-based software and game developer Agate, Southeast Asia-based video game publisher SCRYsoft and Indonesian strategic initiative Oolean.

Oolean was founded by Agate, PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (PT Telkom) and Melon, a joint venture company involving PT Telkom and SK Telecom (SKT).

Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story debuted in Europe in October 2018 and its version in Indonesia is said to feature the Indonesian and Sundanese languages, aiming to strengthen Indonesians’ pride over their mother tongue and other native languages.

Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story has become the first local game on the PlayStation 4 platform that supports native languages,” said Cipto Adiguno, vice president of consumer games of Agate, said in a statement.

In this game, a player acts as the principal of a warrior academy that once enjoyed the best reputation in the land of Valthiria. Players are required to train numerous students to protect the land from a dangerous threat and they also have to collect and use all resources to develop the academy.

“Oolean wishes to show that the Indonesian game developers can compete against other international-scale developers,” said Joddy Hernady, executive vice president of digital and next business of PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, adding that they hoped the initiative would boost other local developers’ spirits for creating games.

Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story had been featured in local and international game events, including the C3 AFA Jakarta 2018, Tokyo Game Show 2018 and PlayStation Experience Southeast Asia 2018 in Thailand. (wir/wng)
