In the early days of the PS Store, there’s no question that 2011’s Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes was a bonafide must own. Published by Ubisoft on the PS3, the Capybara developed classic mixed strategy with puzzle gameplay, and it looked simply sumptuous in HD on Sony’s last-last-gen console. And now it’s getting a surprise re-release for PS4 by Streets of Rage 4 developer DotEmu, so a new era can enjoy it anew.
In essence, it’s a match-three game, but the twist is that you need to align units in order to make them attack or defend. It’s a turn-based game so there’s a lot of strategy, but it’s not so overly complicated that it’s overwhelming; this author hasn’t played the original for probably a decade, but we definitely remember it having a moreish quality that all the best puzzle titles do.
The new Definitive Edition will include all of the original DLC, but crucially the game’s been rebalanced and optimised, while all-new character portraits have been penned to help make the release feel fresh. There’s no official release date just yet, but DotEmu’s saying it’ll be out this summer, so don’t expect to be waiting too long to take your turn.
Really enjoyed this match 3 game on PS3. Enough so bought the DS version for my wife. Not sure I'll buy it again as I expect it will be $20 and I probably only paid $5 for the PS3 version, but if it gets added to PS+ Essential I'ld play it again.
I wonder if they'll do like they did w/ then upgraded Legend of Dragoon recently and I'll be able to upgrade my PS3 version to the PS4 version? Though that was Sony so probably not. Oh well.
Played this a few times on DS back in the day. Found it unique and addicting. It's been a while, so will probably buy the remake if it is reasonably priced and reviews well.
I remember this being a really fun game. Not sure if I’ll buy it again on PS5, but I can attest that if you haven’t played it, it IS worth a look.
Might & Magic is by far my favourite franchise ever (I always got a new PC when a new one was released), so when when clash of heroes came out, I bought it in a heartbeat. It had very little to do with Might & Magic, but I greatly enjoyed it anyway. I rarely rebuy games I've played in the past, but in this case I'll make an exception.
This is a pleasant surprise. I loved this game back in the day. But I don’t remember playing that much of it, probably distracted by bigger games. This is a chance to correct that!
I remember playing and loving this on XBLA. I will be picking this up!
This sounds really fun. I have too much on my plate at the moment, but it's definitely going up high on the wishlist.
One of my favorite games on the ps3. I'm not sure what they can add to make it better though. I'd much rather have a sequel.
