Hex Heroes: Wii U combat footage

Posted on 1 month ago by in Wii U | 4 Comments | 0 Likes

Hex Heroes has been in development for a while, and while the developers have noted that they have had trouble developing both the combat and the Wii U version, they now have footage showing off both running well. In the same post, they also note that they will discuss more about a potential Switch version after this week’s presentation.


The developers of Hex Heroes, which is still currently slated to be released for the Wii U, have commented on the Nintendo Switch and the possibility of Hex Heroes appearing on it.

While initially expected for release in 2015, Hex Heroes is still under development after its successful 2014 Kickstarter campaign. The game utilizes the gamepad and 5-player potential of the Wii U heavily, and as such porting it to other systems would be a tricky scenario. It seems that the developers of the game are hopeful at the prospects of a Switch port though, as in the most recent backer update they go over the details of what a Switch port of Hex Heroes would look like, how the controls would work and ask for backers input on whether they’d like to see a Switch port of the game if possible.

Based on the trailer, it doesn’t appear that one Switch can perfectly mimic the Wii U’s ability to display different visuals on the TV vs. the gamepad. Two Switches, on the other hand, could. One Switch for the commander, and one switch docked to the TV for four player split screen. This makes an assumption about the Switch being able to support up to four players, though – the trailer has only shown up to two (granted, they were on the portable screen, not the TV). At best, two Switches can offer the Wii U experience, and at worst, three Switches will be needed (for 5 players). Again, time will tell.

It’s worth noting that Hex Heroes is being built for ALL control schemes on the Wii U. We don’t want to bar players from joining in the fun just because they only have Wii remotes. This early decision will serve us well, if we can make the move to Switch, given that each mini-controller has roughly the same amount of buttons.

Work continues on Hex Heroes, Prismatic’s real-time-strategy party game which was funded a couple of years ago. Today, the team shared an update as to what’s been going on with the Wii U version.

Prismatic mentioned on Kickstarter that there have been some technical issues on Wii U. That mean the team needed to “revisit the very foundation of how the game is built.” You can read the full update on Kickstarter, but the good news is that progress is going relatively smoothly now. Prismatic hopes to soon have the Wii U version in line with the PC edition showed at GDC earlier this year.

Hex Heroes, a new Wii U title funded through Kickstarter last year, has finally received a new trailer – see it below. The actual game is slated for spring 2016.

Hex Heroes has managed to reach its funding target on Kickstarter with less than a day remaining in the campaign. Just a few minutes ago, total donations exceeded $80,000. Congratulations to the folks over at Prismatic Games!


Another three cameos have been confirmed for Hex Heroes, but this time around, they’re not from another Nintendo indie game. The folks over at Game Grumps will be playable, Prismatic Games has confirmed. Each of them will be voicing their own character.


Zoya is the latest cameo appearance in Hex Heroes, Prismatic Games’ upcoming Wii U exclusive. The character has appeared in both of Frozenbyte’s Trine games.

Hex Heroes will also contain cameos from Mutant Mudds, Shovel Knight, SteamWorld Dig, Guacamelee, and Paradise Lost.


Yet another cameo has been confirmed for Hex Heroes. Today, Prismatic Games announced a collaboration with Asthree Works to include Subject W from Paradise Lost.

Prismatic Games is also kicking off a pair of contests for Hex Heroes. You can find information about that on the Kickstarter page here.


We’ve already heard that Renegade Kid’s Max will be included as a character skin in Hex Heroes. Other cameos were previously teased, and it’s now been made known that the indie title will feature at least two more crossovers.

Juan from Guacamelee and Rusty from SteamWorld Dig will also be featured as cameos in Hex Heroes. And according to developer Prismatic games, “There are more surprises to come”.
