Snail Games have revealed a new game which will occur within the Taichi Panda universe called Taichi Panda Heroes, and that closed beta sign-ups are now readily available for interested gamers to try getting into. Unlike most games that add ‘Heroes’ to their name and end up being a MOBA, Taichi Panda Heroes is not a MOBA, but a sequel to the original game.
Taichi Panda Heroes is actually the official sequel to Taichi Panda, and can actually bring the franchise right into a more MMORPG realm with a lot of the brand new mechanics that’ll be arriving with it. One thing that the original game did not have was an open world. That will be changing with this particular new game. So players will not be locked right down to being in-town when not inside a dungeon.
Another change with this game is that players won’t just have one character, and can possess a team of heroes. When Taichi Panda Heroes launches, you will see 19 heroes open to start, with more being put in the future through updates. When you wish to use a different hero than your current one, you can easily swap it. It appears as though you’ll simply be controlling one at a time though during combat. We’re saying ‘looks like’ since there is not a lot of details just yet on how many of these additional features works, only that they’ll be coming using the game.
There may also be PvP and raid dungeons coming with Taichi Panda Heroes, but what exactly all that will entail hasn’t been announced yet. The closed beta sign-ups are live and available over around the Taichi Panda Heroes micro-site. We’ll post an update once we find out more details, or go hands-on with this sequel.
