Hex Heroes coming to Wii U

Prismatic Games has announced they are developing a brand new title called Hex Heroes, exclusive to the Wii U. The game is a multiplayer real-time strategy game designed for up to four players that involves collecting resources, building defensive structures, conquering enemies, and exploring territories. One player uses the GamePad in order to manage the resources and teammates, while others execute orders.

There are eight classes to choose from and at character creation, each player will be able to choose two classes for their character. Combos like rogue/archer and knight/woodcutter make interesting on the fly decisions. Check out the trailer for the game above, which is the Kickstarter trailer. The Kickstarter will be launching on March 25.

  • Rich Garriques

    BRING ALL RTS GAMES TO WII U.

    • David Trail

      And MMORPGS

  • metalpants

    Make ‘em rain, indies. Gonna be such a good year x)!

    • David Trail

      I love indies. Indies and Mario Kart 8 = very good year indeed!

      • metalpants

        For sure. Indies are the future of gaming IMO… what with major 3rd party pubs/devs closing up shop left and right. This and next year are already looking packed with good stuff.

        • David Trail

          With DKC TF, Shovel Knight, Pure Chess, Mario Kart 8, Wii U is looking good for me. For example MGS Ground Zeroes is coming out and it is £30 for a demo. Indies rule!

          • metalpants

            Whaaaaaat?! That’s my first time hearing that :o…

            And heck yeah, and that’s just Spring! Then comes X, Bayonetta 2, Hyper Light Drifter, Smash, Project CARS, and so forth. My poor wallet…

  • Wighead

    The Wii U is a console made for RTS. I Wonder why there is next to none…

    • darkcreap

      Exactly. The touch screen is so fit to replicate a mouse-oriented interface, like that of Real Time Strategy games on a PC. I mean, it is something that a classic controller (two joysticks, 4 face buttons and 4 shoulder buttons) simply cannot replicate half so well as a touch screen.

    • linkzero65

      Cough”pikmin”Cough

      • Fred

        But Pikmin isn’t exactly the type of RTS he was talking about.

      • Wighead

        That’s why I said next to none and as a RTS lover I do have Pikmin 3 on Wii U. On the other hand, I’d love more classic RTS like Starcraft or C&C. It would work perfectly with the gamepad, at least a lot more than on a classic controller.

    • David Trail

      Developers are stupid?

      • val berger

        not necessarily. devs are, like many companies in this sad capitalistic world, kinda money driven and noone really expects a strategy game on a home console to be kinda successful. So the smaller the dev is, the bigger their cut if they manage to fill such a niche. Still it’s sad that it took so long and isn’t pushed more as the WiiU could really work for example for Boardgames. I played Stuff like Carcassonne on the iPad a lot and it’s really fun and would totally fit to Nintendo’s Offline-Multiplayer appeal.

    • Donaald

      Probably it has to do with the popularity of the genre and publishers not wanting to take the risk.

  • Gabe Hoffman

    Grant Kirkhope is composing. I can hear his style in the trailer

  • darkcreap

    Yes, great!!! I have always said that point-and-click Real Time Strategy (RTS) games are well suited to the WiiU. Some RTS PC games could fit well on it.

  • Lil J Moore

    Still waiting on Nintendo to announce something good.

    • David Trail

      Mario Kart 8, SSB U, Bayonetta 2, Monoliftsofts X, Sonic Boom, Shin Migami V Fire Emblem to name a few.

      • linkzero65

        and i’m still waiting for that SMT X FE like seriously where is it? hope they show it at E3 this year with zelda u too

        • David Trail

          That would be awesome!

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    That icon actually really intrigued me. Looking forward to see how this turns out

  • FIreproof_actual

    Geez…all we ever get is crappy indie titles..where’s Metroid and Zelda…and a true 3D Mario game…

    • David Trail

      Indies are better than most main games these days. Ground Zeroes is a load of rubbish.

      • linkzero65

        quote”HAW DAR U GRAWND 0OZ IS BTTR THN WII CARP U” quote
        “FAK YOU BASTARD U NO KNOW A REAL GAME LIKE COD AND MGZ ”
        wow i should defenetly do this for a living! :p

        • David Trail

          MGS Ground Zeroes is way better than Mario. 75% on meta critic and only 2 hourz long!

          • matthew garcia

            I think u forget that alot of games that cost 60 bucks in the 9 0’s like teenage mutant ninja turtles u can get through in 45 minutes.

          • David Trail

            Ground Zeroes is 75%

          • matthew garcia

            I don’t care about metacritic scores I told u before. The coolest looking indie game I have seen is rime and that’s ps4 exclusive. Has the graphics of wind waker and shadow of the colossus all rolled into one. Looks amazing

          • David Trail

            MGS Ground Zeroes another mediocre multiplat on ps4 : )

          • matthew garcia

            Lol like I said I have all 3 current gen games. I’m enjoying metal gear solid at this very moment on ps4. I been playing titanfall for 3 days straight before this on xbox1 and was playing ray man on wii u before that

          • David Trail

            Do you have DKC TF or SM3DW?

          • matthew garcia

            Yes I do there great games to. Got infamous pre ordered can’t wait. Probably won’t get another wii u game til may when mario kart comes out. Pretty long time between game releases on wii u

          • David Trail

            Check out the indie titles, virtual console and it plays Wii games to.

            Shovel Knight looks really good.

          • matthew garcia

            Yeah ill check it out. Be good to pass a little time

          • David Trail

            If you need any tips on Wii U games ask me. I have played a lot. Zombi U is awesome!

          • linkzero65

            XD

    • David Trail

      SM3DW

      • Wighead

        It’s a really good game, but not a full scale 3d Mario game.

  • David Trail

    Game looks interesting.

  • Miguel Angel Barrueta Hernánde

    this looks great! a fantastic idea! the wiiu need more 5 player games!

    • David Trail

      Amen, hopefully they can expand on the idea and make some more serious titles like this as well. Imagine a Zelda RTS?

  • David Trail

    Nintendo should make Battalion Wars 3 for Wii U.

  • FutureFox

    Well….its a good start. I’ve been espousing a RTS since launch. Better to ease people into an idea with a fairly simple game like this.

  • wiimenonowiiu

    Ohhhyeaaaa im getting this game forsure

  • Ducked

    When will Nintendo announce their big game for the Wii U? That’s what I want to know.

    • Diaz

      They’ve announced a lot of “big” games for the Wii U. Are you talking about the new IP?

      • Ducked

        Yeah that.

        • Fred

          X might be a new IP we don’t know enough about it yet

        • Diaz

          As much I love Nintendo I’ve learned not to get too hyped up about things. The new IP could always end up some new party game or something

    • David Trail

      Sonic Boom?

    • Louie

      “Official Nintendo Magazine has teased that their April issue will
      feature a new, unannounced Wii U game, and, in pre-empting speculation
      running into overdrive, specifies that it is neither a new F-Zero or
      Star Fox title from the House of Mario.”

  • uPadWatcher

    “… which is the…” what, Ashley?

  • David Trail

    Imagine using the touch screen to control your army and seeing them move on the top screen. Why are most developers so unimaginative?

    • uPadWatcher

      Very good question. Electronic Arts are just one of the many developers today are not taking advantages of both the Wii U hardware and the Game Pad.

      • David Trail

        Why though? A football managing game would be really good on Wii U. A touch screen beats using a menu. Plus seeing the action on the bottom screen whilw watching the play on the top screen would be magnificent. Damn EA and their laziness!

  • cusman

    I couldn’t find the game on Kickstarter. Hopefully something reminds me to look again on the 25th.

    • Fred

      Yes it would be nice if there was another article on the 25th. This could be the first kickstarter I help fund

  • Fred

    This will be nice next to my other Wii U strategy game:
    CastleStorm.
    I’m looking forward to the kickstarter kickoff. Hopefully their funds goal isn’t too big

    • Mario Garth

      I love Castlestorm.

      • Fred

        Have you tried either DLC pack?

    • MerryBlind .

      I love CastleStorm too. The Wii U features are awesome.

      • Fred

        I love that when my wife and I play 2-player we each get our own screen. (TV for one gamepad for the other)

        • MerryBlind .

          I know right??? Nintendo should push that feature more! I’m still hoping we’ll get that in MarioKart 8, so that we can play 5 players locally!

          • Fred

            If they don’t do it on Mario Kart 8 then I’ll be very disappointed. Sonic Racing has that feature and it came out a long time ago. If they want Mario Kart 8 to be better it NEEDS to include that

          • MerryBlind .

            I haven’t played Sonic Racing, but I knew it had the feature. Nintendo have no excuses to not make this happen. Hell I’d say make MK8 the first game to use more than one GamePad, and allow for 6 players local multiplayer.

          • Fred

            I love your way of thinking. If they announce that Mario Kart 8 is the first to use 2 Gamepads and you can do 3 players without split screen and 6 player with split screen and 6 v 6 online with 2 consoles…I’m buying a second Gamepad and downloading Mario Kart 8!!! Done. Unfortunately, I think at this point if they were going to do that it would have been announced already, but perhaps I’m wrong.

          • MerryBlind .

            I know!! It would be so awesome!!! Since Mario Kart is one of those titles that every body will talk about, the clever use of the GamePad would have spread and more people would have bought both a Wii U and MK8!

            Now it’s ‘just’ going to sell ‘well’ ‘just because’ it’s Mario Kart. The GamePad stuff would have sold people on the console itself, not just Mario Kart.

            They could even sell a bundle with Mario Kart 8 and a red GamePad for 125$ or something, you know like they sell a Wiimote bundled with certain games, not sure how much the GamePad alone is worth.

          • Fred

            Are you saying a bundle with 2 Gamepads and Mario Kart 8? That would be REALLY COOL!

          • MerryBlind .

            No that would be too expensive. I meant Mario Kart 8 + Red GamePad Bundle, nothing else. Since the sole reason of purchasing a 2nd GamePad would be for Mario Kart for now.

          • Fred

            What if they had 2 Gamepads and 1 v 1 local multiplayer where nobody could screen cheat and peek at where the other guy is? That would be worth the second Gamepad.

    • Wighead

      Castlestorm is the perfect grab and play indie game and its cheaper than a lot of games out there.

      • Fred

        It is a really fun game. I’m glad we got the DLC. I already bought the first pack and I’m sure I’ll end up buying the second pack.

  • val berger

    This is actually what I’ve been asking for since about Jan 2013 when people started questioning the way Nintendo is not doing proper marketing for their system. Why wasn’t there something like this available at launch? Nowadays it might not really shine out, but back then it would have been a perfect example of what this system is actually capable of and why it really differs from its competition.

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    Kinda looks like Catan… Could be fun if you like Catan, personally I actually don’t like Settlers of Catan much so this game won’t be for me, although it’s a Wii U exclusive I might back it anyway.

  • Rinslowe

    Groovy

  • steveb944

    This looks pretty intriguing. Keep us updated with a link for when it starts up next week

  • MysteryT

    This actually looked pretty fun! :D

  • MujuraNoKamen

    This game has music by Grant Kirkhope! Me gusta.

  • http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B008SRISGU#reader_B008SRISGU Adam Howell

    Assuming there’s online play I’d buy it.

  • David Horowitz

    It’ll probably be another game that uses only 10gb out of 25gb on the disk.
