'HeroClix' iPad Game
Published: 05/15/2012 01:19am
HeroClix TabApp, a new game integrating WizKids miniatures with the iPad, will launch in October. The iPad will be used as a digital game board, with minis placed onto the device recognized by a software developed by WizKids sister company Icarus Studio. Exclusive content and game maps are unlocked based on the miniature selected. A swipe of the tablet will allow players to move along the virtual board and take part in high-action battles.
The iPad game will be available free through the iTunes app store; minis will be sold through the normal WizKids network.
No licenses were named, but the game will "bring popular characters commonly featured in NECA's product lines to the game," according to the announcement.
