Class of Heroes Trivia (PS Vita)
Relation to Wizardry Xth: Unlimited StudentsIt is believed that Class of Heroes began life as a PSP port of the PS2 title Wizardry Xth: Unlimited Students. There are a striking amount of similarities, including identical map layouts, item properties, and quest objectives. Perhaps most telling, hidden at the start of the game's code in the original Japanese release is the string "WizXth2", though this was removed from reprints and the international release.
However, as the companies involved have never made an official statement, the details of this connection, or why the game was superficially changed, are unknown. One staff member on Class of Heroes, programmer Kazuya Yamagishi, was previously an employee at Wizardry Xth developer Michaelsoft, but he was not credited in the development staff for Unlimited Students. The rest of the Wizardry Xth team, under the name Team Muramasa, regrouped at a new studio called Experience Inc. in 2007 to create their own spiritual successor under the title Generation Xth.
