Heroki, a premium title from developer-publisher Sega, has been in development for five long years. And now, at long last, it seems iOS device owners are finally set to see the application reach the App Store. Its price, however, might be a little higher than what you usually pay for iOS releases.
This is because Sega is gunning for a slice of the high-end iOS game market with Heroki. The game, according to the app’s “debut trailer,” is due to retail on the App Store for $7.99. This might not be the most expensive iOS release we’ve seen, but the move does mean Heroki is going to be on the pricey side once it finally reaches our iPhones and iPads.
In the past, Sega has released bits of news concerning Heroki, which has indeed seen a surprisingly long development. Back in February 2012, a teaser trailer for the app hit YouTube. Then, soon after, another article of ours shared more details concerning the app. At the time, Aldrin Calimlim explained:
Unlike your typical platformer where walking, running, and jumping are the requisite movements, Heroki devotes a great deal of its gameplay to making its main and eponymous character fly. Although the aforementioned earthbound movements are called for in some parts of the game, it’s the exhilarating act of flight that really keeps things moving in Heroki. As you can see below in the preview footage recently released by Picomy, flying makes for greater explorations of the varied game environments and more ingenious confrontations between the heroic Heroki and his enemies.
Now, Heroki’s most recent trailer has surfaced online, and offers gamers a more rounded glimpse at how the application is going to look once it launches on iOS. See what you think:

Impressive, right? We can’t wait to go hands-on with Heroki. Here’s hoping it launches on iOS soon.
