Cryptozoic makes, among other things, a deck-building game based around the DC universe. If you liked the pseudo-anime “Batman Ninja” movie from last year, good news — an expansion is on the way that pulls the world of that movie into the game.
You are Batman….or Catwoman, Robin, Red Robin, Red Hood, or Nightwing….six heroes are playable. The mission you all must take on is to topple the five living castles where The Joker, The Penguin, Poison Ivy, Deathstroke, and Two-Face currently reside. It’s not over when you defeat them all…THEN they combine into one super-castle which will take all your resources and cooperation to defeat.
Each Super-Villain has colors on its four sides matching the main card types: Hero, Villain, Super Power, and Equipment. During your turn, if there is a card matching one of those types in the Line-Up, you must take the card and place it next to the corresponding side of the Super-Villain. When you defeat a Super-Villain, instead of placing it in your deck, you earn each card attached to it.
The new keyword “Ninjutsu” provides the Super Heroes some much-needed help as they take on the fearful might of the combined Super-Villains’ super castle!
The Batman Ninja Deck-Building Game contains:
- 21 Main Deck Cards
- 6 Oversized Super Heroes
- 5 Oversized Super-Villains
- Rules Card
- 1 Randomizer Card and 1 Divider (for Multiverse Box)
It’s 100% compatible with the vanilla DC Deck-Building Game as well as all previous expansions. The battle in feudal Japan begins again November 5.
