USAopoly — which now goes by the handle "The OP" — announced that it had signed a deal with Games Workshop to release licensed versions of the Talisman board game.
Now one of those versions has been announced, with Talisman: Kingdom Hearts due out before the end of 2019 in both North America and Europe. Here's a bit about the game and its setting from The OP's press release:Quote:Following the release of award-nominated video game Kingdom Hearts III, the celebration continues as Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition reveals Sora, Kairi, Riku, King Mickey, Goofy, and other comrades as figures at the helm of impressive new stories and combat methods. Inspired by Kingdom Hearts lore, the 2- to 6-player game's objective compels players to acquire the needed Strength and Magic to seal the Door to Darkness and keep Heartless from consuming the communal worlds.
An artful game board with three regions, custom marbleized six-sided dice, tokens, and cards maintain the beloved aspects and exploratory spirit of "The Magical Quest Game" while offering lighthearted Disney nostalgia. Memorable locations such as Neverland and Traverse City, Munny-themed currency, Gummi Paths and more will comprise a brand new journey to the delight of sentimental fans.
Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition is at the forefront of The OP's recently announced partnership with Games Workshop, and enthusiasts can expect more dynamic titles to come from the collaboration!
