Just as Might and Magic is one of the more revered PC role-playing game franchises of all, so is it’s off-shoot Heroes of Might and Magic was considered one of the finer turn-based strategy game franchises for PC. The mix of resource and town management, coupled with deep unit customization made the series an instant classic.
Both series floundered a little after Ubisoft gained the rights, but such concern was mitigated when Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes HD debuted on XBLA and PSN. Now it’ll be remade for iOS and Android.
Eurogamer reports that the smartphone versions will feature touch-screen controls, but the HD visuals could end up being the biggest draw. Puzzle RPG mechanics on a 2048×1536 resolution iPad? Yes, please.
Conversion will be handled by Tag Games, known for Doctor Who: Mazes of Time on mobiles. As of now, the release date is “in the near future”. Check out the announcement trailer below.
