After discovering the first piece of stunning art from Hero we were on a quest to find out more about the axed Midway project.
Hero was in development in 2008. Given the timeframe it was likely a current generation game with a concept that sounds similar to the TV show series "Heroes." Hero is centered around characters with different special powers.
Artist Tae young Choi painted this picture of a character with a tail who has super strength. In the background, laser beams from a satellite on the fritz are slicing through everything in their path.
This character has the power to control water. Choi wanted to make the water form a dragon, an idea rejected by his boss.
This man with a sword, perhaps the same sword carrying hero from Martiniere’s art, has the power to jump really high.
One part of Hero takes place in Chicago, an interesting local choice since Midway has a studio there. Concept art shows Chicago’s loop and a subway scene.
An office fight reveals a hero with some kind of shield or force field power.
This awe inspiring piece of art is from a battle scenes in Hero. A character who appears to control electricity and the jumping hero face off on the wingtip of Air Force One.
… that would have been quite a fight to play, but sadly Hero is canceled.
