Beginning September 23, fans will be able to take HeroClix gameplay with them wherever they go with the "HeroClix TabApp." The app will combine the classic physical HeroClix gameplay with all-new digital gameplay on the iPad, which will make use of figure recognition technology to bring new Marvel HeroClix figures to life in the digital realm.
WizKids Games is launching two "HeroClix TabApp" figure packs based on two of Marvel’s most iconic teams, the Avengers and the X-Men. Each pack, set to retail for $14.99 USD, will contain three figures, cards for the tabletop HeroClix game and a code to unlock the figures in the app. The figures include HeroClix dials, and can either be used in classic tabletop HeroClix matches, or digitally on the HeroClix TabApp.
The Marvel Super Heroes pack, which debuts on September 23, will include Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America figures. The Wolverine and the X-Men pack will include Wolverine, Cyclops and Iceman figures, and is set for release on September 30. The figures will initially be available at Toys “R” Us stores.
