Ubisoft’s popular Might & Magic franchise is finally coming to the DS this August in Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes.

Developed by Canadian indie studio Capybara Games (so this must be their “super-secret” DS game), Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes takes the series in a bit of a different direction as a puzzle RPG with a new “manga-style” art design. Looking at the first provided screenshots (gallery below), the game’s turn-based puzzle battles appear to be structured almost like a match-3 puzzle game, though no description is provided about how the battles actually play out.

Through five different quests, you will alternate between traditional RPG exploration and whatever these puzzle battles are on a mission to save the world of Ashan from demons. And in addition to the solo campaign the game will also feature a PvP two-player mode of some kind. Again, not many specifics to report on here.

“Our fans have always appreciated the depth and richness of the Might & Magic universe,” said Romain de Waubert de Genlis, senior producer at Ubisoft. “The teams at Ubisoft and Capybara were inspired to extend that universe in a unique way onto the DS, creating an engaging new game experience.”
