Kingdom Under Fire was a series that was particularly special back on the original Xbox. As I have since found out, it holds up well today, with the developer porting the original game to the PC earlier this year. Now the sequel to that game, Kingdom Under Fire Heroes, is also getting a similar re-release.
Heroes is great. It has an infamously bad localisation, but that’s easy to put aside because it is also filled with challenging, engaging blend of strategy and Dynasty Warriors-like action combat. There are seven different heroes and factions to control, over 50 missions, and a random mission generator for “endless” missions beyond the narrative stuff. Additionally, the game will be in full HD, with support for modern ultra-wide monitors.
And of course there is the heavy metal soundtrack that the series is loved for. The game releases this summer (or winter for those of us in the southern hemisphere).
