Rising Star Games today announced that strategy RPG Little King's Story is to be released across Europe on April 24, meaning the title will arrive in PAL territories first.

"With such a legendary team of designers behind it, Little King's Story promises to be one of the games of the year," said Yen Hau, product marketing assistant, Rising Star Games. "Our focus is on bringing the very best Japanese games to Europe - and we've worked incredibly hard to ensure that our gamers will be able to play this ground-breaking collaborative title ahead of its native release."

Little King's Story combines elements from life-simulation, real-time strategy and adventure genres, allowing the many aspects of creating a vast kingdom to come to life. As the King, players will manage and involve their townspeople in the goals of creating this new territory; enlisting them to dig for treasure, build new buildings and better their community.
