Original story (03/15): The Might & Magic fantasy RPG series is one of the longest running console and PC video game franchises. Today, Ubisoft announced it is bringing the series over to smartphones with the worldwide launch of Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians on May 31 for Android and iOS. The game was soft launched in limited markets about a year ago.
The first Might & Magic game launched for the Apple II way back in 1986 by New World Computing. More games were released in the series, even after the developer was acquired in 1996 by The 3DO Company. Later, 3DO shut down and the rights to the Might & Magic franchise were purchased by Ubisoft, who released a number of PC, console and mobile games since then.
Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians was developed by Ubisoft Barcelona Mobile specifically for Android and iOS. Players will have to assemble a team of characters to fight in tactical strategy RPG battles. Over 400 creatures will be available to either collect for your team, or to fight against in matches. Those creatures can also evolve over time to gain new powers and abilities, and you can battle other people worldwide in PvP matches.
The game also promised to have augmented reality features. You can take pictures of yourself with your team’s creatures side-by-side with this AR mode, along with a way to watch matches in some kind of AR view. The game will also have special live events, and you can join in-game Guilds to go on special co-op adventures with friends. If you go to the official Might & Magic website, you can pre-register to get an alert when Elemental Guardians goes live, and get an in-game reward as well.
