Anything Goes in Nexon’s First MOBA, Hyper Universe

First Hands-On Opportunities Available This Weekend at PAX South

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#HyperUniverse–Shaking up the MOBA genre with a unique new twist, Nexon America today
announced it will bring Hyper Universe to North America, Latin
America, Europe and Oceania in 2017. Combining the gameplay of a
side-scrolling action platformer with the highly strategic,
team-oriented gameplay found in a MOBA, Hyper Universe reimagines
a popular genre to deliver action-oriented mayhem. Jump into the
stylized fray in the first trailer for Hyper Universe:

Attendees of PAX South in San Antonio, TX this weekend will have the
chance to be among the first to experience the intense side-scrolling
MOBA, in booth 11854.

In Hyper Universe, players will take control of one of a
multitude of battle-ready “Hypers” and use their insane abilities to
defeat the opposing team and bring about victory. Taking many shapes and
sizes, the Hypers range from a mage who rains down giant snowmen on his
enemies, to a mongoose riding astride an armored rhinoceros, to a
tentacled Admiral with the power of the kraken at his call, and more!
The distinctive playable characters, inspired by legendary icons in
popular culture, fall into a diverse set of both new and traditional
MOBA roles to create a frenetic battlefield filled with a wealth of
crazy techniques and exhibitions of skill.

Played using a two-handed keyboard control scheme, Hyper Universe
challenges players with five turrets to dominate and defend across
multi-level, side-scrolling maps, as they dash and jump across the game
to save the universe.
