EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nexon and NAT Games announced that Heroes of Incredible Tales (HIT), the HD hack-and-slash RPG powered by Unreal Engine 4 and topping Korean charts, will be launching worldwide this summer. HIT is the debut mobile title from the new studio NAT Games founded by Yong-Hyun Park, the renowned lead designer behind popular massively multiplayer online role-playing games Lineage II and TERA. Downloaded more than 5 million times in Korea, HIT has remained in the top 10 grossing apps on the Apple App Store and Google Play since its November launch. Players can preregister for HIT to receive unique in-game rewards including gems, weapons, and accessories, and be notified when the game launches at: hitmobile.nexon.com.
“HIT is a revolutionary gameplay experience that’s as fun to play as it is visually stunning. Built on Unreal 4, we are able to push today’s powerful mobile devices to deliver truly immersive, visceral gameplay,” said Lawrence Koh, General Manager at Nexon M. “Yong-Hyun Park creates incredible RPG experiences that resonate with players globally. We are very excited to bring his epic slasher to mobile devices worldwide later this year.”
HIT’s fluid and action-packed battles star four distinct classes of heroes whose armor, skills and attacks are unique and highly customizable. Players vanquish evil, with loot drops and leveling adding nuance to their hero’s combat style. With simple but lightning-fast attacks, HIT provides instantly gratifying battles. Strategic players will chain together long combos of melee, ranged and evasive maneuvers for greater rewards. HIT’s expansive game modes currently include 200 increasingly challenging levels, a six-player free-for-all PvP arena, massive cooperative raids and dungeons with more content planned beyond launch.
“We’ve created HIT because it’s exactly the type of game that my team and I love to play, mixing intense and rewarding action with deep customization and an abundance of loot,” said Yong-Hyun Park, CEO of NAT Games. “It’s been absolutely amazing to see Korea embrace this game and with Nexon’s global reach, the rest of the world will soon be hacking and slashing their way through this dynamic and detailed world.”
