The Legendary game from Upper Deck is a blast to play. But sometimes you can’t gather your friends (or spend the hour setting the game up) at a moments notice. On August 17th that changes with the release of Legendary DXP, a digital gaming platform for mobile devices.
While Legendary DXP is set in a fantasy realm instead of the Marvel universe like we hoped, Upper Deck claims the digital system will have the same gameplay you already know from the physical deck building game.
“Expanding Upper Deck’s award-winning table top games to the digital world opens the door to incredible new features and replayability that were never before possible,” said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck. “The first digital launch of Legendary DXP gives our fans around the world an exciting insight of things to come.”
There is a twist though – you can play five different matches: Solo, VS Friends, Quick Match, Custom Match, and The Gauntlet, which is an ongoing five-player tournament.
Welcome to the fantastical world of Alamyth where you can recruit all new legendary heroes and fight the terrifying forces of evil. Visit all new landscapes of Alamyth such as the Firelands and fight the likes of The Leprechaun Henchmen and the evil villain,Ernak The Lethal. Just beware, if the Mastermind, Terriskai: Terror Of The Skiescompletes his evil scheme, everyone loses.
With the launch of the game, it looks like we are getting a true port from the board game, which should make Legendary fans jump up and down and foam at the mouth until the GenCon release date arrives. I can understand that the Marvel, Predator, Aliens, Big Trouble in Little China licenses may not be available right now, but if this game takes off, I can see Upper Deck negotiating DLCs or other versions of the games in the next year.
I’m kind of interested in seeing if the Munchkin Land crew would be on board for The Gauntlet tournament.
What say you, Spoilerites? Are you grabbing this game on the App Store, Google Play and Steam when it releases?
