Cryptozoic Announces Batman Ninja Set For DC Deck-Building Game

It's always interesting to see a classic character we all know and place them into different cultures and see how they might've been envisioned if they had originally be created in those cultures. In this case, what if Batman had been created in Japan, and was a ninja instead of a detective? Well, you can see how that'd work out on your game tables with DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 8: Batman Ninja, coming soon from Cryptozoic.

From the website:

Based on the Batman Ninja animated feature, this expansion for the DC Deck-Building Game takes place in feudal Japan and lets players become Batman, Catwoman, Robin, Red Robin, Red Hood, and Nightwing.

The Super-Villains (The Joker, The Penguin, Poison Ivy, Deathstroke, and Two-Face) are the daimyos who battle from within giant castles that come to life. When the fifth one has been defeated, the five castles merge to become one final titanic challenge. The card backs of the Super-Villains each form a portion of the giant merged castle, with The Joker’s head at the top.

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!
