A hot trend with gamers right now are deck building games, but many currently in the market lack the name recognition and firepower of beloved characters from the Marvel Universe; until now. Upper Deck Entertainment is pleased to share the company will be launching a Marvel-based deck building game currently being called “Legendary” in the near future.
Besides popular Marvel superheroes like Spider-Man, Iron Man and Wolverine, the game also features a never-before-seen game engine designed by Devin Low, the former Head Developer of “Magic: The Gathering®.” In “Legendary,” each player starts with a deck of basic cards and then improves that deck throughout the game by recruiting Marvel’s greatest heroes in an effort to take down evil Marvel super-villains like Sabertooth and Dr. Octopus. “Legendary” has all the cool combos of a trading card game, but all 500+ cards in the game come in one big box and you build your deck during the game.
Unlike other deck building games, in “Legendary,” the game actually fights back, with an evil mastermind like Magneto working on a dark scheme to crush all the players at once. Every time you play the game, a different evil mastermind will be pursuing a different dark scheme with different rules and it is the player’s job to thwart their evil efforts so good can prevail. Not only will players battle the evil masterminds, but also each other as there are several instances during game play where conflict arises within the team and it is up to the players to work through that.
What’s more, every piece of art used in “Legendary,” is original. Upper Deck Entertainment wanted to provide Marvel fans not only with a brand new gaming experience, but also treat them to compelling artwork that has never been seen before. Gamers are ready for a new type of experience and that is exactly what “Legendary,” delivers.
More details will be announced on this exciting new Marvel property from Upper Deck in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, take a look at the main elements that will make “Legendary” a must-have title for gamers and retailers alike:
