Little King's Story(JP) is a Wii video game made by XSEED and Marvelous. This critically acclaimed title combines RTS, RPG, Adventure, and Lifetime genres.


Little King's Story begins with the story of a young boy named Corobo Bred. Shy and without many friends, Corobo stumbles upon a mysterious and powerful crown whilst walking in the forest near his village. He soon discovers that the crown grants him the ability to charm any person and make them follow his orders. Suddenly, Howser, the bull knight, appears informing Corobo that he is now King of the village and that he must not take this responsibility lightly. Returning to his sleepy village as a King instead of a shy little boy, Corobo begins a quest to turn his small hamlet into a noble, fantastic kingdom.

Little King's Story is the result of the combined heavyweight development team from some of Japan's most successful titles and features key contributors from the Harvest Moon series, Final Fantasy XII, Dragon Quest VIII, Mario & Luigi RPG, Kingdom Hearts and Chulip.
