Steamforged Creating Devil May Cry Board Game

"Bridge may be icy. I don't know. Bridge may be chocolate."

Sorry to butcher a good Demitri Martin bit for that, but it's what I think of whenever I see titles like that. Anyway, Steamforged Games is coming out with another board game based on a popular video game franchise. This time around, it's Devil May Cry. The Kickstarter campaign for Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace, will be coming to Kickstarter sometime Q2 this year.

From the announcement:

Welcome Hunters!

Steamforged Games is delighted today to announce an exciting new partnership with Capcom to bring the genre-defining and action-filled Devil May Cry™ experience to the realm of board games. Building on the success of the award-winning Dark Souls™: The Board Game, the critically acclaimed Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game, as well as a highly successful campaign for Horizon Zero Dawn™: The Board Game, Steamforged Games will be launching Devil May Cry™: The Bloody Palace via Kickstarter campaign in Spring (Q2), 2019.

Devil May Cry™: The Bloody Palace is an easy to learn, fast-paced, and dynamic experience where style counts for everything. Take control of one of Devil May Cry™’s iconic demon hunters, Dante, Nero, Trish, or even the newest addition to the series, the mysterious V. Players will be trying to outscore each other by building the most impressive attack combos and achieving the highest style rank. Featuring all of the adrenalin-fueled intensity that fans new and old will remember, we couldn’t be more thrilled for players around the world to experience our next video game adaptation for the tabletop!

“As a long-time fan of Devil May Cry™ and given my background, I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the team working on this board game.” Says Mat Hart, Steamforged Games’ Creative Director. “From the beautiful sculpts through to the subtle yet dramatic depth of gameplay, we’ve captured the very theme and essence of all that is awesome about Devil May Cry™.

“We are delighted to be working with the folk at Steamforged Games to bring the demons of Devil May Cry to life on players tabletops” commented Brian Ayers, Senior Brand Manager, Capcom. “Following the recent success of the latest title in the series Devil May Cry™ 5, we believe that the brand is stronger than ever and can’t wait to see players enjoyment on playing the upcoming board game release next year”

Devil May Cry™: The Bloody Palace will be coming to Kickstarter with a downloadable rulebook as well as playthrough videos from our development team, so you can dive straight into the gameplay, and then get even more excited as we reveal game mechanics for the demon hunters, enemies, bosses, and more!
