IDW Games will be releasing a new board game based on the critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series later this month.
Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham Under Siege is a miniatures board game that sees Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Catwoman helping the Gotham police stop waves of criminals advancing through the streets of Gotham.
That’s not all, while holding off advancing waves of Gotham’s meanest criminals, the player will also have to uncover the devious plots of the city’s greatest villains.
The game lets up to four players take on the role of the Dark Knight and his trusted allies as they face off against a set of story cards each round. These story cards are inspired by the first season of the iconic animated series. It’s a continual balancing act trying to keep the streets of Gotham safe while still focusing on stopping some of Batman’s toughest and nastiest villains. If too many buildings are destroyed or civilians perish it’s game over for Bats and his team.
The game includes highly detailed miniatures of each of the heroes including Commissioner Gordon and uses 3D cardboard buildings for Batman and his heroic friends to scale. IDW has stated that they are planning future releases in the Batman: The Animated Series line which will probably include an expansion or two for Gotham Under Siege.
There couldn’t be a better time to be a fan of the animated series as not only are we getting the board game but there is also a limited edition Blu-ray release of the animated series coming out later this year. It’s a great time to be a fan of the Bat.
The Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham Under Siege board game is set to go on sale on the 29th of August 2018 and is already available for pre-order.
