I remember thinking when I first started playing that it reminded me of some Asian RPGs I had played before (although I assumed they were Japanese), but that never crosses my mind now. In fact it seems pretty Western to me, but maybe it has changed since it first came around?
Just to clarify, I meant the RPG style. The story and characters were patterned after Western fantasies already. I believe it was specifically made for the Western audience. But the game play of using hex spaces, fixed damaged, fixed XP, number of turns, option to choose what each figure can level up to, each character has his/her own name, and such were distinctively the same from those old Chinese RPGs. I have to say that even the use of cartoonish or cute anime-like avatars and anime-style drawings remained the same. Graphics-wise, not much were changed, same size, maybe a little better but not too much difference. You'd probably won't notice the age if you play one of those 20 year old titles after this game. The only thing new here that I can remember is the presence of multiple campaigns and multiplayer capability.
That makes sense. Those were the elements that made me think of some Asian RPGs I had started but never got into, particularly the anime-graphics, the hexes, and the XP. I think it was the "Western" Fantasy theme that made Wesnoth palatable to me.

Re: Like Heroscape Video Game - MW Tactics

I'd like to echo everyone's laments that Heroscape couldn't have taken this turn...
:O What consoles would this game be for? When is it coming out?

Dang, that sure is pretty sweet looking.

Being an old battle tech fan that does have some appeal just the way it is.

Sort of like the old Mech Commander games, but just with hexes.

It says summer 2012 in an interview.
I'd guess that means September.
