WizKids & 4K Media Announce Yu-Gi-Oh Tabletop Games

Facebooktwitterredditmail

WizKids has announced that they are teaming up with 4K Media to produce a series of games using their HeroClix miniatures and Quarriors dice-building systems.  The first set will be a clix game with approximately 50 miniatures divided into a 2 player starter set and booster expansion packs.  Anyone familiar with WizKids previous clix games probably won’t see anything too surprising from this release, but it does give fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh collectible card game a new outlet to duel with the monsters and characters from the popular animated series.  Players can expect to see the first set later this year with subsequent expansions coming throughout 2014.  Although the press release mentions a dice-building game in the style of Wizkids’ popular Quarriors franchise, a release date has not been mentioned.

This is obviously exciting new for fans of Yu-Gi-Oh.  The franchise has retained a solid following since the show first debuted in the US in 2001.  For fans of HeroClix, this opens up the interesting option of having Aragorn, Spider-Man or even the Master Chief battle against iconic Yu-Gi-Oh creatures like Blue Eyes White Dragon, Time Wizard and Dark Magician Girl.  That might not seem like it makes any sense, but it’s no less feasible than Cthulhu fighting Klingons.



Avatar ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
According to his peers, Ryan plays far too many board games, an awful lot of role-playing games, and occasionally makes time for video games. If asked his opinion, he would just laugh and wish for more hours in the day to create characters and place meeples. On the rare occasion he isn't rolling dice, he's reading comics or watching movies. He eats and sleeps between initiative steps
