Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer. The game brings the mechanics of deck-building to this new platform while also offering a fresh narrative that can be enjoyed by both newbies and experienced players.

So what’s the game all about? First things first, a digital collectible card game titled Shadowverse was released for mobile in June 2016. By October of the same year, a version for the PC was launched. This same game later spawned an anime released in 2020, and that's where Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle is based from.

Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle is an RPG card game where players collect new cards to have more powerful decks as they progress. Players can enjoy the game through solo play but those who want to test their deck-building skills can go online and take on multiplayer matches.

The game is also set to feature a Battle Pass system that offers cosmetic leader skin rewards as well as other in-game bonuses, which can be unlocked by finishing different missions. The Switch version even adds deluxe battle animations to give players a more immersive experience.

In terms of gameplay, players take on the role of a transfer student at Tensei Academy. Players then get to know their classmate Hiro Ryugasaki and get introduced to the Shadowverse card game. Both the player and Hiro team up with Shadowverse club president Rei, who is the only member of the club. The three will work on mastering this card battle game to bring the club back to its former glory.

In their journey to win the national championship, players get the chance to explore some rather interesting locations not only around the school but even in the surrounding town. Several events and encounters can also happen at any time.

For now, no other details have been released about the retail and digital versions of the game. If anything, the only information revealed is that the title is rated “T for Teen.”
