This game is Kick-Ass, y’all.
No, really, it’s Kick-Ass, a board game based on the comic by Mark Millar and John Romita, coming to you in Q3 from CMON. Grab your spandex and weapons and hit the streets of New York as one of its vigilante crime-fighters. Take on the tough gangs all while still making sure you get to your day-job on time.
From the announcement:
This superhero business can be tricky! Sometimes, even the best laid plans can be upended by a natural disaster, an evil villain’s plot, or even simple timing. With CMON’s busy production schedule in 2018, we didn’t feel that we could do justice to a Kickstarter campaign for Kick Ass: The Board Game. The decision has been made for this cooperative adventure to go directly to retail.
Players will be able to assume the roles of characters from the comic book series by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. like Kick Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy. They’ll battle to save New York City from a supervillain’s plot, while balancing the tricky business of their messy personal lives.
Featuring brand new art inspired by its comic book origins, engaging game play, and highly detailed miniatures representing the characters from the stories, Kick Ass: The Board Game will inspire players to put on the mask and fight to save the city.
Look for Kick Ass: The Board Game in your FLGS in Q3 2018.
