IDW Games, in partnership with CMON Limited, is announcing today the launch of a BackerKit preorder campaign for Arcadia Quest: Usagi Yojimbo Hero Pack, an expansion to the popular adventure board game that incorporates characters from Stan Sakai’s beloved comic book, Usagi Yojimbo! The campaign will run from today through August 14th.
Wandering the world on a musha shugyõ (warrior’s pilgrimage) has brought Miyamoto Usagi across many bizarre situations, but none so strange as the dangers regularly encountered in the fabled city of Arcadia! Reunited with his companions, the rhino bounty hunter Gen and vixen thief Kitsune, Usagi must rescue the city from the vile Lord Fang and his monstrous forces.
“Wonderfully fun character designs in a wildly exciting adventure — I can’t wait to play it!” says Sakai.
The Usagi Yojimbo Hero Pack includes a Miniature Model and Character Card for each of the Usagi Yojimbo characters: Miyamoto Usagi, Murakami Gennosuke, and Kitsune. In Arcadia Quest gameplay, this assemblage of anthropomorphic Heroes forms a Guild, employed by a single player to compete against both monsters and opposing players for ultimate victory!
The iconic Usagi Yojimbo characters are designed in the chibi-style, perfectly matching the aesthetic of the Arcadia Quest game.
“CMON is honored to bring Stan Sakai’s iconic Usagi Yojimbo into the world of Arcadia Quest in our first-ever licensed character pack for the game,” says CMON’s Geoff Skinner, VP of Licensing. “Working closely with Stan and IDW was a dream, and we can’t wait to hear about all of Yojimbo’s Arcadian adventures from tabletops of fans!”
