Explosive Rhythm-Runner, Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story, Announced for Switch & PC
Today, publisher Riot Forge and developer Choice Provisions formally announced their new rhythm-runner experience, Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story.
As you’ve probably already guessed, the game is an offshoot project that utilizes elements and characters from the popular League of Legends universe. Specifically, the upcoming title boasts the appearance of the bomb-loving champion, dubbed Ziggs, from Riot Games’ much-loved competitive MOBA.
Hextech Mayhem is scheduled to be arriving for Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG) on Nov. 16. and will retail for $9.99 (or your regional equivalent).
Feel free to check out the brand new announcement trailer down below:
From the looks of things, Hextech Mayhem appears to be a fun and charming mascot platformer that blends the moment-to-moment gameplay of Super Mario Run (remember that!?) with the rhythm-based mechanics of Crypt of the Necrodancer. Oh, and it features explosions. Lots and lots of explosions.
