Marvel Entertainment and game developer Nexon have announced a new mobile game titled Marvel Battle Lines, a digital collectible card game focused on player vs. player battles.
Battle Lines is played by collecting digital "cards," and assembling them into decks, which are then pitted against other players' decks. The cards feature Marvel heroes and villains with character art and information. Additionally, Marvel Battle Lines will feature single player modes with games based on prominent Marvel stories.
“Marvel’s incredible universe has reached hundreds of millions of fans around the world and it’s an honor to be collaborating with their team on a truly unique game that draws on the nostalgia of collecting trading cards and taps into the fun of battling with friends,” said Lawrence Koh, General Manager at Nexon, in a statement. “Marvel Battle Lines is incredibly engaging, fast and accessible, and will give players a chance to hone their skills and collect their favorite Super Heroes and Super Villains based on how they like to play games - whether that’s through the original single-player storyline and activities or competing in the PvP mode.”
“We are working very closely with Nexon to deliver a card battle game that is authentic to our characters and true to the platform,” added Jay Ong, Senior Vice President of Games, Marvel Entertainment. “Marvel Battle Lines features an original story and all-new gameplay that Marvel fans and mobile players alike will enjoy for hours on end.”
Marvel Battle Lines will be released on iOS and Android later this year.
