Ubi Soft has signed an agreement with 3DO to adapt Heroes of Might and Magic III for the Dreamcast. The agreement gives Ubi Soft the worldwide rights to the Dreamcast version of the title.

The Heroes of Might and Magic series of games are medieval strategy titles with turn-based battle sequences. The series has existed on the PC since 1995 and has managed to capture popularity among gamers.

"We're delighted that Ubi Soft is bringing one of our premier titles to the Dreamcast," said Trip Hawkins, chairman and CEO of The 3DO Company. "We have a long-standing relationship with Ubi Soft, and we're pleased that they will be extending the award-winning Heroes of Might and Magic series to a wider audience."

For Heroes of Might and Magic III, Ubi Soft is planning on making use of the Dreamcast modem for online multiplayer gaming. The game is being slated for a second quarter of 2000 release.

The PC version of Heroes of Might and Magic III was reviewed by GameSpot earlier this year. Reviewer Greg Kasavin scored it a 9.1, calling it "one of the most brilliant strategy-game designs ever conceived."
