Clash Mini: everything we know about Supercell’s next automatic chess game
Clash Mini is a brand new action strategy game from the world of Clash Of Clans created by the huge Finnish developer Supercell. It’s an automatic chess strategy game with adorable new visuals using characters from the familiar Clash universe.
For the very first time, mobile gaming giant Supercell has unveiled three new games set in the Clash universe. Clash Mini, Clash Quest, and Clash Heroes are all coming. Unveiled as part of the trio of new Clash titles today, the game is already quite advanced in development, but does not yet have a launch date.
The team revealed in an exclusive YouTube video that the games will feature a mix of characters and styles familiar to Clash fans, with new game modes. Here’s what we know so far about Clash Mini.
Developed by Supercell Shanghai, a team Supercell recently recruited, and Clash Mini and Clash Heroes are the first two titles developed by the company’s Chinese studio.
Clash Mini has been reportedly in development for some time. It takes the form of a board game within the Clash universe, played by characters! He takes battles out of villages, castles and fields and onto the virtual table.
The game consists of fighting with minifigures, hence the title Clash Mini of the project.
Each of the two players will place their miniatures at the same time, which will then fight automatically. In this way, it is a simplified version of the automatic chess format. In the same way that Clash Royale made MOBA-style games accessible to everyone, the team aims to do the same for the auto-chess genre here.
It follows the usual automatic chess setup of deploying troops in strategic positions before watching them fight with the opposing player.
âWe have decided to focus 100% on the strategic parts rather than on the real-time controls,â says Supercell.Graphic
As Supercell’s entry into the popular auto-chess and esports arena, it features a cute aesthetic compared to regular Clash games. âImagine your favorite Clash characters, sitting at a mini table and dueling with miniature versions of those around them,â says the developer.
The cute design reflects Supercell’s desire to make a casual strategy game that’s both easy and accessible. âA laid back strategy game that anyone can play,â is how Supercell puts it, although he announces, âThe cuteness of the minis could also be very deceptive. Some of them are a real challenge. “
Clash Mini release date
Supercell Shanghai’s first talking heads video describes it as an “early development streak.” We’ll assume that a soft-launch version later in 2021 is a distinct possibility.
Clash Royale is one of our favorite games, and we also desperately need someone like Supercell to bring some magic to the auto chess genre. Supercell never releases bad games – it’s famous for a rigorous development process that sees interesting but flawed projects killed in the early stages, with only the best reaching the app stores. We can’t wait to get our hands on this Clash Mini experience already.
