What You Need to Know:
- Aspyr Media and Digital Continue announced today that Next Up Hero is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and Linux in early 2018.
- Next Up Hero is an arcade action-adventure driven by Community Continue, in which players take turns fighting -- and dying -- in community game sessions, working to conquer impossibly hard monsters and bosses together, one hero at a time.
- Choose from nine heroes with an assortment of weapons and abilities to suit your playstyle, from swords and rocket launchers to laser turrets, bongo drums, and boomerangs. When you die, you’ll leave behind an Echo of your hero on the battlefield. The next in the line of heroes will be able to resurrect your Echo as an AI battle companion. Take turns continuing friends’ games, fighting and dying until you have an entire army of Echoes by your side, and enough strength to finally defeat those jerk monsters. Everyone dies. Heroes continue. Next Up Hero is the first original game from developer Digital Continue, founded by industry veteran Joe Tringali, the co-founder of 5TH Cell, creators of Scribblenauts, Lock’s Quest and Drawn to Life.
