From the makers of Maple Story, Nexon is bringing their side-scrolling action MOBA, Hyper Universe, to Xbox One this summer
Nexon America, the company behind Maple Story, is expanding beyond PC and mobile and bringing their fast-paced side-scrolling MOBA, Hyper Universe, to Xbox One this summer! Hyper Universe is set to release exclusively on the Xbox One family of devices on August 7, 2018. Fans can pre-order the Ultimate Hypers Pack for $19.99 starting today in the Xbox Store. The Ultimate Hypers Pack is valued at over $120 of content that includes instant access to all 39 Hypers at launch and all future Hypers, as well as six Xbox-exclusive Hyper skins. Fans who pre-order the Ultimate Hypers Pack by August 6 will also receive Celine’s Aurora’s Arrow skin at launch.
Personally, this game reminds me a bit of Awesomenauts but with a more distinct variety of characters. I was really intrigued how the one hero looked like an American comic book character, the other looked like a medieval game sprite, and another looked straight out of an anime. If it can be like Fortnite, meaning a well made and fun game that is actually free-to-play and not pay-to-win, I think this could be a hit. Considering it’s the company that made Maple Story, I have pretty high hopes for them. Check out what Nexon America’s President as to say and what else the game has to offer below. Also, some pre-order news.
“Bringing one of the most unique MOBA experiences on the market to the Xbox console represents a huge opportunity for us,” said Jungsoo Lee, President of Nexon America. “The fast-paced action of MOBA video games forces players to think strategically, and we know console gamers will love it.”
