Fantasy Flight Games has announced that the run of making the Legend of the Five Rings card game is coming to an end. This latest chapter in the game’s long saga will end with one last deluxe release in the coming months.
From the article:
In the fall of 2015, Fantasy Flight Games first announced that it had acquired the rights to Legend of the Five Rings, a long-standing card game that has invited thousands of players to play as samurai in the Emerald Empire of Rokugan. Two years later, the next iteration of Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game was announced, reimagining the classic collectible card game as a Living Card Game.
Over the subsequent years, Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game grew and unfolded, telling a gripping story and stimulating players’ imaginations with complex and interwoven gameplay. With five cycles of Dynasty Packs, seven Clan Packs, and three premium expansions (including the upcoming Under Fu Leng’s Shadow), we had the chance to build and explore this universe with all of you. However, as much as we have loved creating and developing this card game, the time has come to announce the completion of Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game with other games and stories to look forward to in the future.
With the release of Under Fu Leng’s Shadow, Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game will be complete. Introducing new cards for every Great Clan and the chance to battle the Shadowlands in cooperative or challenge deck variants, this final premium expansion marks a fitting capstone to this Living Card Game. What’s more, while Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game is drawing to a close, the vibrant and immersive world of Legend of the Five Rings will continue to be explored with other exciting games currently in development. Players will discover even more opportunities to interact with the story of Legend of the Five Rings through these other games. In the meantime, while it is too early to go into details on those games now, you can keep up with the world of Rokugan through Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying from EDGE and novels from Aconyte Books!
As Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game draws to a close, Organized Play for the game is also coming to an end. You can find further information on the end of Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game Organized Play here.
