The Popular Netflix series The Dragon Prince is getting the tabletop treatment thanks to the folks over at Brotherwise Games as a The Dragon Prince board game was announced today. The Dragon Prince: Battlecharged is a fast-paced, tactical miniatures game where players must work to change the future of the land of Xadia featured in the show.
The Dragon Prince: Battlecharged Announced
The announcement of the new game was made by Brotherwise, the creators of hit tabletop titles such as Boss Monster and Call to Adventure, and aims to capture the essence of the insanely popular animated Netflix series. The Dragon Prince: Battlecharged features 8 playable characters from the series, each with their own unique moves and play styles. Each of the featured characters will also have their own highly-detailed miniature, and there will be 6 different maps for players to battle their way across.
Although we don't know much about the mechanics of the game, it seems likely to be a competitive battle game featuring various attacks, spells, and bonuses based on the various cards that each hero and villain can use, at least going by the trailer anyway. The game is almost guaranteed to be a hit, like the show it's based on, which was released in 2018 and has been getting rave reviews ever since, both for its amazing writing and its representation of LGBT characters. The show's highly-anticipated fourth season has been delayed thanks to the ongoing pandemic, so hopefully, this game can tide people over while they wait.
Even More Tabletop Adventures.
The Dragon Prince: Battlecharged isn't the series' first brush with the tabletop community. A tabletop RPG known as Tales of Xadia has been in the works for some time now, with various pieces of playtest material available for the curious. Only time will tell if The Dragon Prince: Battlecharge will successfully translate whatever made the show so enjoyable into a board game.
You can sign up for information about the game at Brothewise Games' website. The Dragon Prince: Battlecharged should be available for pre-order at some time in June, with a full release expected in Fall 2021. Check out the trailer below.
