PlayFusion and Games Workshop today announced that the trading card game Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions will launch on Nintendo Switch on April 16, 2019.
About the game
A platform-first for the beloved TCG genre, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions is a modern take on collectible card games, featuring true cross-play between digital and physical versions. Players can scan physical cards into their collection to claim and take them onto the battlefield.
Harness the custom crafted decks from one of the four Grand Alliances and challenge friend or foe across the world and across platforms! The Nintendo Switch version supports full crossplay with Steam and Mobile devices. Players can also take Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions on the go, with joy-con and touch screen support, or at home.
Launching with the Nintendo Switch version is a brand-new huge single-player adventure, Realm Trials. With dozens of hours of content players will fight legendary battles to conquer the Mortal Realms! On top of this, players can also experience a whole new way to battle with the new mode, Arena of Echoes.
Drafting decks from 2 given alliances, players will craft their own from a random selection of cards and battle through a series of League rounds to gain entry to the prize Gauntlet. Be careful not to lose, else you drop through the ranks and end your run!
Realm Trials and Arena of Echoes join a robust series of narrative campaigns, multiple game modes including Ranked and Casual play, as well as seasonal leaderboards and challenges.
