If you’re a fan of tabletop games and either of Skybound’s two greatest franchises, then today’s your lucky day! We’ve just renewed our partnership with Mantic Games to bring you brand-spanking-new tabletop experiences based on The Walking Dead and Invincible! This news is especially exciting for Invincible fans, as it marks the first time Mark Grayson and his pals will be seen in a tabletop format. Check out full images of both games after the following official deets on their release from Skybound HQ…
Skybound Entertainment, the multiplatform entertainment company behind award winning comic books, video games, audio series, and more, is renewing its partnership with UK-based studio Mantic Games to bring two new tabletop experiences to fans of The Walking Dead and Invincible as part of the franchises’ 20-year anniversary rollout.
The two new card-and-dice games are set to launch in Q4 2023 in time for Season 2 of the highly anticipated Invincible series on Amazon Prime. Both games are designed to be easy to learn and packed with iconic art from Skybound’s flagship comic universes, clever mechanics, and exciting push-your-luck gameplay.
Dedicated fans will be able to play special pre-launch editions, including bonus cards, ahead of general retail release at this year’s San Diego Comi-Con (July 20 – 23, 2023, Skybound booth), and at Gen Con (August 3 – 6, 2023, Mantic Games booth).
Games will be available for purchase online to coincide with San Diego Comic-Con at store.skybound.com and manticgames.com.
The companies have previously collaborated over the course of five successful years to bring The Walking Dead to three-dimensional life in tabletop miniature games ‘The Walking Dead: All Out War,’ and ‘The Walking Dead: Here’s Negan!’
“When planning special edition 20th anniversary items for fans, we immediately thought of Mantic Games. The synergy between our two companies has elevated the tabletop gaming landscape, offering fans an extraordinary fusion of storytelling and gameplay,” said Garima Sharma, VP, Product and Strategy at Skybound.
Ronnie Renton, CEO, Mantic Games, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with our friends at Skybound, once again on The Walking Dead and for the first time on Invincible. Our first games as part of our renewed partnership will be launching later this year. They are designed to be great value, brilliant fun, and perfect for taking your favourite worlds and adventures on the go.”
