Publisher Gamecock has revealed plans to bring the Firefly Studios developed Dungeon Hero to the Xbox 360 and PC. Dungeon Hero (referred to simply as Hero on the official website) is a dungeon crawler of a different sort. Rather than depicting dungeons as lifeless underground caves filled with monsters and treasure, Dungeon Hero paints them as living, breathing underground cities. In addition to the traditional ranged, magic, and melee combat, Dungeon Hero also employs "Close Combat" which the official site describes as "a totally new, brutal mode of fighting." The game also promises co-operative play, now a staple in most dungeon crawlers. If Dungeon Hero sounds like your kind of game, then we hope your patient: it's not scheduled to release until 2009.
