Ubisoft has just announced that it’s set to bring an “HD Edition” of Heroes of Might & Magic III to iOS and other platforms next month.
Subtitled The Restoration of Erathia, Heroes of Might & Magic III is a turn-based strategy game originally released for Windows in 1999.
“Fifteen years later,” Ubisoft proclaims, “rediscover the epic tale of Queen Catherine Ironfist, as she re-embarks on her critically acclaimed quest to unite her ravaged homeland and re-conquer the kingdom of Erathia.”
As its “HD” label suggests, the upcoming new edition of Heroes of Might & Magic III features remastered graphics. Here’s but a sample of the updated visuals in the game:
