'Ninety-Nine Nights' (X360) Heroes Detailed - 35 New Screens

Ninety-Nine Nights is a fantasy action game that mixes action game with strategy elements. You control a massive army that is challenged by hordes of enemies, in a multi-angle scenario, where you can assume the role of various characters and see the gameworld from totally different pints of view.

Aspharr "The Reluctant Blue Knight"

Aspharr is a 19-year old blue Temple Knight. He wields a Light Orb Spark and a long spear. He is Inphyy’s brave older stepbrother and a childhood friend of Ectvarr, the Maiden of Light. He cares deeply for his younger sister.

Despite his tender age, Aspharr is a thoughtful young man with a cool head. He dislikes conflict, prefers not to give orders to others, and is deeply conflicted over the Human sacrifices being made in the name of the war over the orbs. Aspharr has trouble defining justice as a mere factor of Human political motives.

Dwingvatt "The Vengeful Goblin Warrior"

Dwingvatt is a Goblin who resides in Fort Wyandeek. He wields an Orb Spark of wind elements. Born with pale, Human-like skin, Dwingvatt resents the fact that he looks different from other Goblins. He holds his older brother, Dwinga (who always helped him through hard times) in the highest esteem and believed that his brother was a model Goblin.

This was until the ill-fated day that the Goblins suffered a surprise attack by the Temple Knights, and Dwinga was killed at the hands of a certain female knight. Dwingvatt, driven by vengeance and armed with dual curved swords, left in search of the red-armored woman so that he could settle the scores of fate.

As he tries to avenge Dwinga’s death, Dwingvatt’s actions reflect his determination to be strong and become a venerable Goblin like his brother. Can you help Dwingvatt seek out the female knight and bring fate full circle?

Inphyy "The Angel in Crimson Armor"

Inphyy is a 17-year-old female member of the Temple Knights. She brandishes a crimson broad sword and wields a Light Orb Spark.

Her lineage is “blessed with the divine protection of the Light” and her father was a soldier of honor in the Dividing War. Inphyy is unwavering in her faith in the Temple Knights, her belief in justice, and her loyalty to the Maiden of Light.

Inphyy’s stubbornness is a thin veneer that hides an inner fragility – her immense adoration of her elder stepbrother, Aspharr, and her fiery insistence on justice is a way of hiding these feelings.

Myifee "The Man with Hidden Nobility"

Myifee is a 32-year-old mercenary who wields a Fire Orb Spark. When people see his sly smirk, they usually get the wrong impression. He is, in fact, a proud warrior who always gives his utmost, be it on the battlefield, in romance, or at the bar.

Born into a family of politically astute lawyers and politicians, Myifee grew up with an understanding of one’s public and private faces. Although he was once a Temple Knight, he abandoned them to become an independent soldier after it became clear that the royal army was willing to leave the masses undefended.

Although some of h is decisions appear imprudent, Myifee is, more than anything, a man who refuses to turn a blind eye. In the present war, he volunteered to assist the swordswoman Epharr as a bodyguard. Scratch the surface of this apparent cynic and you will find a likeable man of passion and honor.
