WizKids has put out some great games lately, and also some great toys, like the Portal 2 Gun replica. Now they are taking other Valve properties and bringing them to life in new ways. Soon Dota 2 will be getting the HeroClix treatment, and Team Fortress 2 will get it’s own unique spin on….Chess?
From game world to real world, game creator and leading entertainment conglomerate, NECA/WizKids, under a merchandise licensee agreement with game developer and publisher Valve, today unveiled plans to launch an upcoming Dota 2 HeroClix collection and new game platform entitled ‘NextChess’, featuring Team Fortress 2 (TF2), both based on the best-selling game franchises. Both titles are set to launch this summer.
I’m always interested in seeing video games brought to the table top and vice versa. You can see them at the New York Toy Fair next week if you are lucky enough to get there. Check out the Press Release for more details.
