KessCo Enters Licensing Partnership with Crunchyroll and SPY x FAMILY for Upcoming Tabletop Game

KessCo has announced a thrilling licensing partnership with Crunchyroll and the immensely popular SPY x FAMILY franchise. The alliance is set to materialize in the form of a tabletop game, “SPY x FAMILY: Mission for Peanuts,” which is slated for a Fall 2023 release. The game will be available at Barnes & Noble and other leading retail outlets.

Alex Kessler, CEO of KessCo, expressed the company’s enthusiasm about this collaborative venture, saying, “Bringing SPY x FAMILY: Mission for Peanuts to life is incredibly exciting for us. Our goal is to merge our passion for tabletop gaming with our love for anime, and SPY x FAMILY is the ideal property for this venture.”

Since its inception in 2016, KessCo has made significant strides in the toy industry, with the creation of successful intellectual properties that have left an indelible mark on the field. As KessCo continues to grow, it is extending its licensing endeavors across its product line, and the SPY x FAMILY deal represents one of its most eagerly awaited anime licensing deals.

SPY x FAMILY is a comedic and heartwarming spy series that delicately balances family values and thrilling, world-saving adventures. The series is currently streaming on Crunchyroll in more than 200 countries and territories.

KessCo is offering fans a chance to be a part of the SPY x FAMILY: Mission for Peanuts journey by providing regular updates through its social channels. For an exclusive preview of the game, attendees of GenCon 2023 can try out the game demo and purchase an advance copy at Booth #1949.

SPY x FAMILY: Mission for Peanuts is a gripping game of deduction and deception. Designed for 3-5 players, the game invites players to take on various roles and employ strategic acumen to outsmart opponents and construct the best 2-card team for each mission. If a player successfully brings the Forger family together, they win the round instantly. However, the spy card’s presence adds a thrilling twist, as getting caught with it results in elimination.
