Aspyr has announced a new game called Next Up Heroes, and in it death is something that is required to succeed. Players choose one of nine heroes to battle monsters but these monsters are powerful that the chosen hero will almost always die, which leads to a new hero taking up the mantle to fight. This new hero can call upon the echoes of fallen heroes, until it comes to a point where a mini army of echoes helps the surviving hero beat the odds.
Each hero has their own abilities and can be levelled up to unlock more powerful attacks, as well as steal monster abilities. Next Up Hero will be released this year on Steam, while PS4, Xbox One, and Switch releases are expected in early 2018.
