Astro Boy Edge of Time

Recently a teaser was unveiled that told us something new from Osamu Tezuka was in the works. Though I could have sworn the timer had another day left, that something was revealed today to be a new digital CCG called Astro Boy: Edge of Time. Here’s the catch – it involves crowdfunding! Yes, Astro Boy: Edge of Time is out on Kickstarter today, and is asking for $50,000 to meet its funding goals, with 29 days to go.

It is slated to release on PC as well as mobile platforms, and would feature single player and multiplayer experiences. As if that wasn’t enough to hype us, there are a lot of talented creators involved, including names as well known as Suda51. Best of all, there is already a downloadable demo to try it out and see what you’re backing. It will feature characters from a shared universe of Tezaku’s works. Here are some of the particulars.

Unique Positional Combat: players have access to two rows in combat: an offensive row where cards are able to attack the enemy, but cannot protect the player, and the defensive row where cards defend incoming attacks but are unable to initiate attacks.
Reimagined Characters: Fresh new redesigns of Tezuka’s most famous characters crafted by Japan’s most legendary illustrators.
Story Mode: Experience a whole new adventure with Astro and other famous Tezuka characters that intertwines a deep storyline with unique card-based combat.
Multiplayer: Battle other players in multiple ranked and unranked online modes and prove yourself as the best summoner in The Sprawl.
Ongoing Development: The experience is always growing! Regular updates for ASTRO BOY: EDGE OF TIME will add new cards, new story mode episodes, and new multiplayer modes, so there’s always something new around the corner.


So there’s a lot of cool stuff to check out about Astro Boy: Edge of Time. If you are interested in checking it out, hop on over to the official Kickstarter page.

    I think the kickstarter is a gauge to determine if there is enough interest in the game at all. Will have to try the demo.
