XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe announce that it will release Cygames’ card battle RPG “Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle” for Switch in North America and Europe in summer 2021.
Based on the anime adaptation of Cygames’ strategic mobile and PC card battle game Shadowverse, “Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle” first launched for Switch in November 2020 in Japan.
In “Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle,” players take the role of a transfer student to Tensei Academy, where they are quickly introduced to the Shadowverse card game by their classmate, Hiro Ryugasaki. The new friends team up with Shadowverse club president Rei on a quest to master the popular card battle game and restore the club to its former glory by winning the national championship.
Throughout their adventures, players will be able to explore unique locations around the school and surrounding town, where events and encounters await in the least expected places.
The game can be experienced solo, or players can head online for multiplayer matches to test complex new strategies against others. It will also feature a Battle Pass system with cosmetic leader skin rewards and other in-game bonuses unlockable by completing missions such as winning online matches. The Switch release also adds deluxe battle animations for a more immersive experience.
The game will be available digitally and at retail, and all versions come with a special promo code granting two alternate art cards (three cards each), 10 seer’s globes, and cosmetic items redeemable in the mobile or PC version of Shadowverse.
