Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle is coming to the Nintendo Switch this summer
Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle is coming to the Nintendo Switch this summer from XSEED Games and Cygames. The game, based on the anime adaptation of Cygames’ hit strategic multiplayer mobile/PC card battle game, Shadowverse, is a reimagining designed for the Nintendo Switch console. It brings the deep deck-building mechanics with a fresh narrative that is great for new and experienced players. As players play through the game, they’ll collect new cards and be able to build more powerful decks. Players can play solo or can player multiplayer matches online. It will also have a Battle Pass system with cosmetic leader skin rewards and other in-game bonuses. The Switch version 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! [via XSEED Games]
Shadowverse: Champions Battle will be available digitally and at retail stores, and all versions will come with a special promo code granting 2 alternate art cards (3 cards of each), 10 seer’s globes, and cosmetic items redeemable in the mobile or PC version of Shadowverse. The game will release in summer 2021. More information about the retail and digital versions of the title, including physical pre-orders, will be announced at a later date. The title has been rated “T for Teen” on the Nintendo Switch™ by theESRB.
