PlayFusion, the house that gave us Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions, have announced that their new and wildly popular tactical card game Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions, will be getting a Nintendo Switch release on April 16th. The Nintendo Switch version will maximize the Switch’s capabilities with its unique portable options and the ability to wage online combat from anywhere with a good wifi signal. Most importantly, it’ll allow for the exclusive ability of crossplay between mobile and PC users of the game. This news comes as Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions has been making the rounds in the mobile and PC gaming space and enjoying success among players.
I happened to play the physical game of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions at PAX Unplugged last December in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For more information on that, click here and read my impressions for the physical table-top game.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions will come with a few interesting exclusives for the Nintendo Switch, including a brand-new single-player adventure, known as the Realm Trials. The trials will offer a fantastic way for players to become accustomed to the interesting degree of combat in Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions. There will be dozens of hours worth of content as players will fight in legendary battle across various fields to conquer The Mortal Realms.
The same established combat will be available from the physical and mobile games but there will also be a new way to battle in another brand new mode, the Arena of Echoes. The Arena of Echoes is described as a gauntlet. Players will draft decks from two given alliances then craft their own deck from a random selection of cards. The players will battle through a series of rounds to gain entry to the prize gauntlet. To win means loot and prizes. To lose means losing your rank.
With a large range of game modes, including various campaigns, online play, casual, and ranks matches, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Champions on the Nintendo Switch looks to make a huge impact on the console. Presently, there are no tactical card games on the Nintendo Switch, making the appearance of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions most profound.
For those longing to have Hearthstone on-the-go, this is the closest you’ll be able to get. It will be interesting to see how Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions unfolds with its community on the Nintendo Switch and to see if this paves the way for other games like it to make an appearance on Nintendo’s hybrid console. Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions launches on April 16, 2019.
