USAopoly (The Op) has just announced their newest title in the Talisman line: Talisman: Batman™ Super-Villains Edition.
I first saw a peek at the game at Toy Fair and it looks like a fun twist on the traditional Talisman mechanics. In the game, you play as iconic Batman villains incarcerated in Arkham Asylum. You need to sneak and fight your way through two floors and manage to break into the central tower for your chance to battle the Batman and successfully release the rest of the inmates.
From what I saw at Toy Fair the spots on the board are comic panels that look kinda like security camera footage of sections of the asylum. The game will include 12 custom sculpted Super-Villain figures and 1 Batman figure.
According to The Op:
“The anti-heroic objective in this take on the classic fantasy tabletop game focuses on building the Health, Strength, and Cunning of the Caped Crusader’s enemies. The game suits 2-6 players ages 13 and up, and can be played cooperatively or against other foes, before one winner can earn the reputation of King or Queen of the criminal underworld. Witnesses also report a custom illustrated game board featuring artwork from the best-selling DC comic series “New 52” era, 13 plastic character figures, more than 100 Encounter cards, six-sided dice, and stat boards to monitor each character, easing traditional role-playing game elements into the hands of collectors eager to get in on Batman’s titular Talisman debut.”
Talisman: Batman Super-Villains Edition will be hitting stores this June. For more info head on over to theop.games/talisman-batman-super-villains-edition
