Hyper Universe – Nexon launches action side-scroll hero brawler on Steam

[Steam page] Nexon today announced the launch of its new hero brawler, Hyper Universe, now available via Nexon Launcher and Steam ! Featuring an outrageous cast of characters, Hyper Universe pits two teams of four against each other, challenging players to duke it out in fast-paced, side-scrolling action. Emphasizing individual skill and coordinated team-play, the game unleashes traditional fighting elements in a vertical, side-scrolling battlefield. This can be considered a global launch, since only a small number of countries are restricted.

With today’s launch, Hyper Universe boasts a roster of 41 total playable Hyper characters and nearly 90 pieces of equipment and consumables to implement the best builds for any combat situation. Since the paid Early Access period which started last year, there have been many updates, bug fixes, and game improvements made based on community feedback. Hyper Universe is the debut game developed by South Korean studio Cwavesoft.

Mission requirements range from winning matches to ranking first in various individual match performance stats, and some missions can be repeated multiple times after scheduled refreshes;
