Next Up Hero is a 2D isometric action dungeon crawler video game developed by Digital Continue and published by Aspyr. Riven by Community Continue and inspired by lost childhoods spent at the arcade in which best friends took turns beating unfairly difficult games, Next Up Hero was created so that beating a level is a shared victory, and more fun than playing on your own. It was released on PC through Steam for early access on January 11, 2018. It will also be released on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018.
Fight as the legendary Heroes against evil monsters called the Ceaseless Dirge. Every time you die, you leave behind an Echo who can be raised by the next player. The more heroes who die, the stronger we all become until we win together. Are you a Hero? Good. You’re up next.
Choose from several legendary Heroes with an assortment of weapons and abilities to suit your playstyle, from swords and rocket launchers to laser turrets, bongo drums, and boomerangs. When enough heroes have achieved enough feats of greatness, the Champion Trial will be unlocked, the most punishing ventures created by Digital Continue’s own level designers that require community communication and teamwork if you hope to even stand a chance.
