A South Korean mobile hit is going to try its luck with a global audience.
Nexon announced today that Heroes of Incredible Tales, an action role-playing game for mobile, will get a worldwide release this summer. It has already been downloaded more that 5 million times in South Korea. The publisher has been making efforts to expand its reach to Western market. The mobile industry was worth $34.8 billion last year, according to market research firm Newzoo.
NAT Games, a studio created by Yong-Hyun Park (who was the lead designer for popular online games Lineage 2 and Tera), developed Heroes of Incredible Tales.
“HIT is a revolutionary gameplay experience that’s as fun to play as it is visually stunning. Built on Unreal 4, we are able to push today’s powerful mobile devices to deliver truly immersive, visceral gameplay,” said Lawrence Koh, general manager at Nexon, in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “Yong-Hyun Park creates incredible RPG experiences that resonate with players globally. We are very excited to bring his epic slasher to mobile devices worldwide later this year.”
Heroes of Incredible Tales will be available for iOS and Android devices.
