UPPER DECK RELEASES DARK CITY, THE FIRST EXPANSION TO LEGENDARY™, A MARVEL DECK BUILDING GAME
THIS HIGHLY INTERACTIVE EXPANSION SET ENHANCES THE GAMEPLAY ON UPPER DECK’S NEW HIT DECK BUILDING GAME FEATURING POPULAR MARVEL CHARACTERS!
Carlsbad, CA (June 20, 2013) – Given the great success of Legendary™: A Marvel Deck Building Game, Upper Deck Entertainment is pleased to announce the release of Dark City, the game’s first expansion set. Dark City will add more variety to the gaming experience and will include 17 new heroes, six new villain groups, two new henchmen groups, five new masterminds, and new game twisting schemes!
The Dark City expansion set will now allow gamers to play with over 850 cards and four new pieces of art for each hero are sure to be a hit with gamers. Dark City still offers the highly popular Heroes against Mastermind theme from the core set and includes new game mechanics with a much darker tone. Dark City includes some of the most recognizable heroes and villains from the Marvel universe including Apocalypse, Mr. Sinister, The Punisher and Nightcrawler!
Marvel fans can find the Dark City expansion set in stores now! The expansion set features 350 new playing cards and has a suggested retail price of $39.99. Die-hard fans scored their Dark City expansion early through a special pre-release promotion at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio last week.
“Legendary™ was nominated for the ‘Best Traditional Card Game’ at the 39th annual Origins Awards, so we wanted to debut Dark City in conjunction with that,” said Jason Brenner, Upper Deck’s Marvel brand manager. “We saw a huge response to demos and tournaments we ran for Legendary and Dark City at the show. Fans loved the art and new levels of complexity the expansion set brings to the game.”
The Dark City expansion set promises more variety, compelling art and an intense gaming experience. Don’t miss your chance to become Legendary now that Dark City is available!
