MFV, Inc and WizKids Games have revealed plans today to bring classic tabletop miniature game Mage Knight online and potentially back to comic and hobby shops everywhere!
Mage Knight Revenge is a tactical battles game that continues the storyline from the popular tabletop game, incorporating key game mechanics. The game is set to launch initially on web and mobile, with expansions on other platforms to follow. To assist with their development needs, they've just launched a Kickstarter campaign as well.
“We want to bring Mage Knight back on a new platform,” said Milton Soong, Chief Executive Officer at MFV. “Our goal is to create a fun, polished video game and miniatures line that pleases both existing Mage Knight fans as well as new players—Kickstarter is a great way to gauge interest and receive valuable feedback from the community on the project.”
Backing is currently just under $2,000 out of a $700,000 goal. Supporters will receive perks such as beta access, special titles, and increasing rewards all the way up to a special tour of MFV's studios, depending how much the donation is.
“Mage Knight™ was one of the first games WizKids developed, initially launching in 2000 with overwhelming response,” said Justin Ziran, President at WizKids.
“We’re not only committed to bringing it back digitally enhanced, but we’ll be backing the Mage Knight Revenge Kickstarter as well; reintroducing the Mage Knight tabletop game upon goal completion.”
So, not only will players and fans have this mysterious world available online, but they can once more obtain out-of-print minis in shops around the nation!
