Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions launches on Switch in April

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions, the newest Warhammer-flavored take on the CCG genre, is release for the Nintendo Switch later this month.


Tabletop card games have always been popular among video game fans who like to stay entertained when away from home, so it made perfect sense when developers started creating computer-based collectible card games. Now there are loads of CCGs on the market, and everyone from Bethesda to Valve wants in on the action. The same is certainly true for the crews at PlayFusion and Games Workshop, who have been hard at work with CCG Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions. Now, the teams have announced that the Warhammer Champions CCG will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch later this month.

According to a press release for the announcement, the Nintendo Switch version of Warhammer Champions will feature several Switch-exclusive features, notably including cross-platform play as well as the option to play using the device's touch screen:

"Harness the custom crafted decks from one of the four Grand Alliances and challenge friend or foe across the world and across platforms," the release reads. "The Nintendo Switch version supports full crossplay with Steam and Mobile devices. Players can also take Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions on the go, with joy-con and touch screen support, or at home!"

The release also notes that the Switch version includes "a brand-new huge single-player adventure" titled Realm Trials as well as "a whole new way to battle with the new mode, Arena of Echoes." Bits of these new features can be spotted in the freshly unveiled Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions Nintendo Switch reveal trailer featured above.
