M&M: Clash of Heroes Looks Gorgeous in HD

PSN and Xbox Live Arcade ports of Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes were outed yesterday (and made official today in press release, which I’ve pasted below the trailer for those interested), and this is what the game looks like all purtied up in HD. The redrawn artwork is just beautiful — so vibrant and fluidly animated.
