Ninjak, Shadowman and more team up in the Valiant Comics tabletop game
Valiant Entertainment has announced the upcoming launch of a Kickstarter campaign for a tabletop role-playing game featuring fan-favorite superheroes.
Valiant Entertainment announced its first Kickstarter tabletop game this week featuring Valiant: FIGHT for DEADSIDE. Valiant, while not as recognizable as Marvel and DC Comics, also immerses readers in sci-fi realms with heroes and villains galore. Valiant’s fight to achieve recognition from its most important competitors continues with each new release. This new attempt sees the comic book company entering the table space alongside Dungeons & Dragons, of which Wild beyond the witches’ light the book comes out on the 21st.
In recent years, Valiant has teased upcoming movies and games with its roster of comic book characters. Vin Diesel was cast for Bloodshot, the former marine superhero turned biotech, in a movie released last year. Valiant did and still does his best to compete with both DC and Marvel, but the unfortunate moment of his first theatrical release coincided with the blows of the coronavirus pandemic.
Now Valiant is moving his work in a different direction. The company announced Thursday that it is launching a Kickstarter campaign for its own table game. Valiant: FIGHT for DEADSIDE is intended to be a 1-4 player cooperative game, with designers Sen-Foong Lim from The Shining: Escape from the Overlook Hotel and Legend of Korra: Pro-Bending Arena, and Jon Cohn from Ghostbusters: blackout and Munchkin: TMNT. Fan favorite characters from the Valiant universe will be featured, including Shadowman, Ninjak, Punk Mambo, Dr. Mirage, and more. Players will play as their favorite heroes to prevent Master Darque’s army from invading. It remains to be seen what influence Valiant will have on the best tabletop RPGs, as the genre is so rich and well populated.
Additionally, the company has stated that the first 500 kickstarter subscribers will have free access to an exclusive one-day offer after the Campaign Enemies aired, giving those fans a first look at content in the game’s history. The link to register for the campaign has been provided to fans and will alert subscribers of the official launch of the campaign. In the same way, Goblin SlayerTabletop RPG will arrive in 2022, so the two should be quick competitors once Valiant’s campaign kicks off.
Unfortunately, Valiantis the moment with Bloodshot left his cinematic universe uneasy, as the film did not perform as hoped. If Valiant’s board game can attract new fans and bring together those already interested in ownership, then maybe one day it could stand a chance against Marvel and DC Comics. Until then, Valiant has his plate full, as other beloved franchises enter the table realm by his side, like Microsoft’s energetic cartoon action platformer in Cuphead: Quick Throwing Dice.
