WizKids has announced that they’re going to be adding DOTA 2 to the HeroClix line. Though more interesting, I think, is the Team Fortress 2 ‘NextChess’ game they’ve also announced.

From the announcement:

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.

The announcement follows NECA/WizKids’ publication of the much-anticipated Half Life 2 Zero-Point Energy Field Manipulator (a.k.a. “Gravity Gun”) replica and release of the Limited Edition Portal 2 Gun Replica, which launched with overwhelming response last fall.

    I agree with the post: the chess variant is interesting. Chess is the ultimate strategy game but it has limited opening moves and the strategies can get a bit stale over time, especially against the same opponent.

    A new variant is welcome and I hope they really think it through. Could be the greatest game ever.
