SAN FRANCISCO– May 13, 2009– Today Ubisoft® announced that it will launch a new title in the Might&Magic universe. Might&Magic Clash of Heroes, a puzzle RPG that was developed by Capybara Games, creators of award-winning handheld and mobile games, will be available on Nintendo DS™ and it will be released in August 2009.
Through five unique and epic quests, players will alternate exploration and turn-based puzzle battles in the game to save the world of Ashan from demonic chaos. Might&Magic Clash of Heroes also adopts a brand new manga-style art design that is perfectly suited to Nintendo DS. In a world populated by knights, elves, wizards, necromancers and demons, gamers can manage their own hero, customize their army and lead campaigns in the mythic Might&Magic world.
"Our fans have always appreciated the depth and richness of the Might&Magic universe," said Romain de Waubert de Genlis, senior producer at Ubisoft. "The teams at Ubisoft and Capybara were inspired to extend that universe in a unique way onto the DS, creating an engaging new game experience."
Created for Might&Magic fans, while also attracting new audiences, Might&Magic Clash of Heroes can be played in solo mode or shared with a friend in two-player peer-versus-peer mode.
