EA Play today announced ‘MySims SkyHeroes’, a new flying action-adventure game and the next installment from the MySims franchise is in development for Wii, Nintendo DS, but for the first time in the series’ history, the game will also be made for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. MySims is a spin-off from the main Sims series of games and received mixed reviews upon its release.
In MySims SkyHeroes, players take to the sky to lead the resistance against the evil Morcubus and his drone army and to stop his plans to take over the skyways. Starting as an unknown pilot, players fight to become a celebrated hero as they defeat dangerous enemies in aerial combat, test their reflexes in fast-paced speed challenges, and take on massive enemy bosses that demand all their skills as a pilot to survive.
The potential for customization as players progress through the game is clear for all to see and EA Play have allowed players to build, customize and tune their aircraft to give them an edge in combat – upgrade wings for swifter maneuvers, switch out the engine for a speed boost, or change the paint job to camouflage the plane and avoid enemy fire.
