[Game register] Shaking up the MOBA genre with a unique 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.
In Hyper Universe, players will take control of one 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. 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 to save the universe.
