Rent A Hero is an action RPG released for the Sega Mega Drive (known as the Genesis in America) On September 20, 1991. Emphasizing on over-the-top humor, it was released exclusively in the Japanese market.
The gameplay of Rent A Hero can be described as an Overhead RPG, combined with 2D-based fighting segments, rather than turn-based combat that was common in RPG’s at the time.
You control Taro Yamada, an average teenager who receives a battery-powered suit on complete accident when he orders pizza at his family’s house-warming party in the fictional town of Corja. Discovering the powers the suit gives him, combined with a monthly rent to keep the suit, Taro decides to become Rent A Hero, a hero who will save the day…provided that he is paid.
Continuing the work done by Paul Jensen, RedComet, and many others, this is a translation of Rent a Hero!
When your dad gets a new job, you move to Aero City - a place where crime runs rampant, people are suffering, and cafeterias rent out powerful armor to aspiring heroes for hire. Wait, what?
After receiving a combat suit while trying to order takeout, you decide to become a Rent a Hero and use your new powers to make the world a better place… while earning some spending money on the side. You’ll face the mafia, killer robots, cats with upset stomachs, guys in Godzilla suits and much more on your quest for justice. Good luck - make us proud! (Just remember to pay your rental fee on time!)
