If you’re into card battles and online multiplayer shenanigans, then HEROish has got you covered. The MOBA-lite title is heading to the Nintendo Switch on January 2, 2023.
HEROish debuted on Apple Arcade in July 2022 before bringing its cross-platoform multiplayer gameplay to Steam and consoles. The game promises a combination of tense real-time battle arenas with accessible, card-based combat that’s easy for anyone to pick up and play.
The launch trailer below shows off the colorful fantasy world, brought to vibrant life by humorous storytelling and enchanting orchestral music. It features hand-crafted environments and six eccentric characters with big combat potential and even bigger personalities. This includes Flynn, a paladin with healing abilities, sorceress Lavinia, whose necromantic spells can raise the dead, and the cute-but-deadly anthropomorphic mouse known as Spiderbait, who can ambush opponents with poison traps.
HEROish features three story campaigns to conquer, packed with drama, laughs, and thrilling cinematics. Of course you can also go head-to-head in fiercely competitive 1v1 and 2v2 multiplayer matches.
The game was developed by Sunblink, a company founded by three industry veterans behind well-known titles like DragonVale, SpellFall and Army of Darkness: Defense. HEROish marks the team’s first release, which will be followed up by a sophomore effort in 2023.
Julian Farrior, CEO and Founder of Sunblink, spoke about the team’s passion for this project, including a desire to create something accessible to all audiences.
This kind of fast-paced, strategic action can enrapture, but is sometimes daunting—we wanted to introduce a new audience to this excitement through the friendly, inviting lens of cards and deck building.
