Unveiled late last year, Heroes Genesis is reportedly South Korea’s first mobile game developed using Unreal Engine 4 to go public. Almost a year on, developer Studio G9 announced the action game will be headed to Japan next year, with a launch in its native South Korea still scheduled late this year. A new video was showcased, but apparently Studio G9 is unable produce one of decent quality.
There are currently 16 heroes for players to recruit and form their 3-man combat team. With one controlled manually, the other 2 are controlled by the game’s AI, though commands can still be manually given. Players can switch which hero to be manually controlled at any time during battles. Similar to most mobile RPG titles, heroes can be equipped with various gears and upgraded in power.
A new gameplay feature detailed this time is the “Hero Machine” system. When players gather enough energy through combat, they will be able to summon a Hero Machine, which causes massive damage and turns the tide of battle. Sort of like a berserk mode I think. Studio G9 also teased a PVP mode which only features Hero Machines, but more details will only be announced in the future.
