So…that’s it huh? Heroes Rise: Open Season was the “last heroes Rise game” apparently, so this is all we’re getting with the wonderful world these FIVE games have given us.
And the ending to this one was something else.
Getting the obvious out of the way, the revelation as to who the New MC’s parents were was awesome…as a huge Prodigal fan myself, I’m decently happy with being her little brother. The interactions you get later are really cute actually, which leads into the fact that Prodicessor is pretty cool, nuff said.
Then there’s the ending, bringing back the Infinity Nullifer thing was a cool twist, and there was something REALLY fun about teaming up with your old mc and making descisions for both you and them at the same time. Truly a fitting way to do the final battle.
But I’m not here to talk about that. I’m talking about the secret ending, the inevitable “Versus” tie in I was expecting since the first mention of aliens. In the author’s note at the end it even mentions that to find out what happens to the “eight” who are teleported off we should support a Versus 3.
As someone who’s never played Versus, I dunno how to feel about this. It almost feels like a cash grab and an advertisement within the game…but in a weird way it interests me as well. I want to see a crossover of sorts and I want it to go over well.
And assuming this is a straight up crossover, does that mean we’ll have to carry over Heroes Rise and Versus data to the third book? That doesn’t seem right since you can’t save your data at the end…but it feels like an outright set up for something bigger…
What do you all think?
We might be able to drop Spoiler tabs since this is ALL spoilers but I wanted to play it safe.
