Hey there Ubisoft!
Although I'm not a hardcore gamer, I've been a fan of the Might & Magic scene for a while now. Especially the Heroes series. I remember playing homm 2&3 day and night during holidays etc.
Compared to these games, homm 4 was a bad game (imo, although I think a lot of people share that opinion). It lacked the atmosphere etc. When 3DO/New World Computing disappeared, I was sad to see the homm series vanishing with it.
Enter Ubisoft & all hope was renewed!
I really liked homm V (like many i somehow still consider homm3 as the best in line. Don't ask me why )
I also really appreciated that you guys introduced the series on the handheld consoles with Clash of Heroes.(I played the DS version)
I truly enjoyed that game with the clever battle mechanics. (And so I finally come to my question !! )
But I was wondering if there is any chance we'll be seeing a homm-game (meaning with the real homm gaming mechanics: free movements, upgrading towns, conquering mines & artifacts,...) on the 3DS/NGP? I believe this generation of portable consoles are powerful enough to run a game like that.
I know some of these mechanics were already introduced with Clash of Heroes (unit buildings, artifacts, etc), but I think you know what I mean. (maybe a less linear gameplay feeling would be the right way to put it)
I also know it's way too early in the lifespan of the 3DS or NGP (which isn't released yet) to come out with real statements, but I was simply curious if this idea was already brought up/considered within the might & magic headquarters.
I fully understand if no such plans are in the pipeline, but I think there's certainly a market for something like that.
I hope this message reaches someone of the MM-team as I'm curious for the answer.
