It has been 5 years since the original Hero Emblems took the App Store by storm back in January 2015, but what’s even more perplexing is that a sequel was announced only a year after that – which was FOUR whole years ago. Unfortunately, it is still nowhere to be seen even to this day.

To its credit, developer HeatPot Games still pops up every now and then to keep us updated on how Hero Emblems 2 is going or at least assure us that the project has not been dropped. We received a gameplay trailer in late 2017, then in February of the following year another video was revealed showcasing the shop interface, and finally, in January last year we got a glimpse at a boss fight and some cutscenes via another footage.

Since then, however, things have been really quiet – that is, until the past weekend when HeatPot emerged again to give another new video regarding Hero Emblems 2. You can check out this new video right below:

Unfortunately, according to the developer, the game is still not ready yet. But while that’s admittedly a bit disappointing, we are still happy to know that the making of Hero Emblems 2 is still going strong. Given how great the first game was, we are willing to wait for a worthy sequel – no matter how long that might take.

Hero Emblems
There is still no word on the release date of Hero Emblem 2 just yet, but we highly recommend the first game

If you have not heard of Hero Emblem, it was a premium match-3 RPG for mobile, which is not something you see very often. Rather than being a typical match-3 game with some RPG mechanics slapped on top, it felt more like a fully-fledged RPG and is still an absolutely outstanding game after all this time. If you have yet to give it a try, we highly recommend that you do right now while waiting for the sequel. And of course, we will be sure to keep you updated as soon as there is any new information from the developer, so don’t forget to stay tuned!
