Yoshiyuki Hirai America Zarigani Comedian (Shochiku Geino)

After graduating from high school in Osaka, Yoshiyuki Hirai was accepted into Osaka Designer's College. There, he formed the America Zarigani Theatre Group. Despite the promise of a position at a design firm after graduation, he looked instead for employment within the game industry.

That didn't turn out so well, and while his theatrical group had several performances in the Kansai region, the other members slowly found stable jobs and left, making America Zarigani the duo that it is today. They signed with Shochiku Geino (an entertainment company) in 1994, and have gone on to receive various comedy awards in the Kansai region.

“If you created a
weapon, wouldn't
you want to know
what happened to it?
You'll be keeping a
watchful eye out so that
the weapons you've put
so much love into will
come back to
you safely.”

— Yoshiyuki Hirai

FIND THE RHYTHM
OF YOUR HAMMER

Groove along to the beats of the hammer falls, tapping your Nintendo 3DS Touch Screen to the rhythm in order to forge your shop's weapons. The higher your CHAIN, the stronger and sharper the weapon will turn out! Any blacksmith worth his steel also knows that you have to strike while the iron is hot! Make sure to watch the weapon's temperature, which will affect its critical hit rate, durability, and special properties!

THESE HEROES
NEED HELP

These aren't your average clients! A colorful cast of zany, misfit heroes will become regulars at your store, and it's up to you to give them the weapons they need to complete their personal quests. From the up-and-coming hero, Friedel Schlintz, to the notorious lady pirate, Captain Malibu, you'll have no shortage of demand!

After you rent out the weapon, you can follow their individual sagas on the "Grindcast," the aptly named stream of their encounters, battles, and drama!

HIGH RISK,
HIGH REWARD

Aiding your customers in their quests will yield materials that can be used to give weapons special properties, from elemental attributes to status effects. Keep your weapons polished to give them stat bonuses, and try to keep a healthy stock on hand for any NPCs that might come wandering in!

But if your heroes fail the quest, the weapon you've put so much work into will be lost. The return of the dreaded Evil Lord is nigh, so keep an eye out for fiends that may cross your clients' path!
