My Hero Academia: The Card Game Brings That Plus Ultra Spirit to Tabletop Gaming

Even Deku can comprehend how awesome this is. 


Shinobi 7, a tabletop game publisher that previously brought anime series like Tokyo Ghoul to hungry fans waiting for a licensed game, is back. This time around, it's got one of the biggest licenses around right now: My Hero Academia. The hilarious and heartfelt series that explores heroes and their unique "quirks" is getting a card game, and it's going to be filled with that Plus Ultra spirit you've come to know and expect from Midoriya, All Might, and the rest of the crew.

The game is for two to four players, and it requires all layers to recruit their own super-powered student to their own Hero Agency. You start off by selecting the best student you can with the best combinations of Quirks to complete different challenges. The goal is to become the most powerful agency around, as you navigate 60 students, 60 action cards, 40 mission cards, and 10 recruiter cards. The set comes with the official rule book as well.

There's no word on whether or not the game will also come with new expansions later on after its official release, or if it'll include any other goodies on down the line, but the card game is targeting a November release. That should give you plenty of time to get caught up with the latest happenings in the manga and anime, especially if you haven't started watching the latest season yet.
