Card battle RPG Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle will launch for Switch on August 10 in North America and August 13 in Europe, publishers XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe announced.
Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle first launched for Switch in November 2020 in Japan.
Here is an overview of the game, via XSEED Games:
Based on the anime adaptation of Cygames’ hit strategic multiplayer mobile and PC card battle game Shadowverse, Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle brings the deep deck building mechanics to a new platform and delivers them with a fresh narrative experience perfect for both new and experienced players. 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.
Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle is a reimagined version of the strategic multiplayer mobile and PC card battle game for the consumer platform. As players progress the game, they can collect new cards to build more powerful decks. 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.
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 (and only member) 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. Team up with new friends, battle to become the national champions, and save the Shadowverse Club for future generations!
