After smashing things over on Apple Arcade, Sunblink bring their card-battling MOBA-lite to PC and consoles. The question is – Are YOU HEROish?

Having found some serious acclaim over on Apple Arcade, it’s time for HEROish to make waves on PC and console, today on Xbox Series X|S and PS5, with a Nintendo Switch edition due to drop come January 2nd 2023. 

A MOBA-lite card battler with charming champions and a decent amount of depth, if you’re up for some white-knuckle tension and real-time battling, all mixed with accessible card-based combat, HEROish is one to consider. 

We’ve been working on a full review of HEROish for a little while, giving it a 4/5 and praising it for delivering some fun campaigns, for some excellent variety in the objectices and for ensuring gamers get access to a creative selection of cards. 

It’s all set in a colourful fantasy land brought to vibrant life by humorous storytelling, enchanting orchestral music, and hand-crafted environments, as HEROish throws out some six eccentric hero-ish characters with big combat potential and even bigger personalities. That means you’ll be able to heal summoned troops as the goodly paladin Flynn, raise the dead with sorceress Lavinia’s necromantic spells, or ambush opponents with poison traps as Spiderbait, the cute-but-deadly anthropomorphic mouse.

There will be three story campaigns packed with drama, laughs, and thrilling cinematics to conquer, plus the opportunity to go head-to-head in fiercely competitive 1v1 and 2v2 multiplayer matches.

When you consider that launch today brings forth PvP crossplay between PC and consoles, as well as the biggest content update yet, there’s possibly no stopping what HEROish can achieve. 

“An incredible community of players came out for the launch of HEROish on Apple Arcade and really understood what we were adding to this genre,” said Julian Farrior, CEO and Founder of Sunblink. “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. Some of the most talented game developers I’ve ever known helped ensure HEROish is warm and welcoming to new players, and the community’s feedback since launch has helped us polish the solo and multiplayer gameplay to a mirror sheen.”

You’ll find HEROish on the Xbox Store for £16.74. Expect to pay roughly that on PC and PlayStation too. 

Game Description:

Play as one of six epic heroes, summon troops, sling spells, and destroy enemy towers to achieve victory in this exciting head-to-head castle defense game.
