TERA and Lineage II Lead Designer Brings AAA Single- and
Multiplayer Gameplay Experience to Mobile in the Studio’s Debut Title
EMERYVILLE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nexon and NAT Games announced that Heroes of Incredible Tales (HIT),
the HD hack-and-slash RPG powered by Unreal Engine 4, is now available
worldwide on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for
Android devices. HIT is the debut mobile title from NAT Games,
founded by Yong-Hyun Park, the renowned lead designer behind popular
massively multiplayer online role playing games Lineage II and TERA.
With an expansive single player campaign, cooperative and competitive
online multiplayer and a variety of game modes, HIT offers a
wealth of content for all types of players. Reaching the number one Top
Grossing Google Play position in Korea, HIT broke records to
become the fastest growing game with over 5 million downloads to date.
“HIT weaves together elements from beloved action RPG and hack-and-slash
titles to create a mobile experience that feels both intuitive and
boldly innovative,” said Lawrence Koh, General Manager at Nexon M.
“Yong-Hyun Park and the NAT Games team have come out swinging with their
debut game, maximizing the potential of the game’s powerful engine to
put HIT in a rare group of AAA, console-caliber mobile titles.”
Fast action is at HIT’s core where players must keep enemies at
bay by utilizing high-speed combos, aerials, throws, counters, dodges,
ultimate specials, juggles and more. The expansive skill tree provides
the ability to customize the style of combat and evolve powers to take
on the toughest of foes. A variety of gear including weapons, armor, and
other rare loot that can be collected in sets encourages exploration and
experimentation in search of the ultimate combo of gear. HIT offers
four playable characters from the outset, each with unique strengths,
abilities and play styles. The two-handed greatsword-wielding Hugo mows
through enemies, while Anika pairs her deadly scythe with agile
acrobatics. Lucas wields fearsome dual swords while Kiki uses her
magical staff to control the elements and bend nature to her will.
“With HIT, we set out to raise the bar of core gaming standards
and redefine player expectations on these powerful mobile devices,” said
Yong-Hyun Park, CEO of NAT Games. “With the game’s visceral HD graphics,
living 3D environments and fast and fun combat, we’re confident that
console and PC players around the world will feel right at home when
they get their hands on HIT.”
Along with an engrossing fantastical storyline in the Adventure mode, HIT
is packed with additional single player modes including Tower Trials
horde mode and the Daily Dungeon challenge. HIT is true to its
MMORPG roots, offering players an abundance of real-time multiplayer
content for both cooperative and competitive play with head-to-head
combat in The Arena, 3v3 PvP arenas, cooperative Raid Mode and all out
mayhem in Guild War.
HIT utilizes Samsung’s cutting-edge Vulkan technology, which
offers unprecedented graphical fidelity and color depth for a mobile
title. On modern mobile devices, HIT’s graphical effects include
particles, smoke, fire, reflections, and explosions rendered at a smooth
and consistent frame rate for an experience on par with console and PCs.
The trailer and other HIT videos can be viewed on YouTube.
