Trading card game Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions is now available on the Nintendo Switch.

Age of Sigmar is a modern take on collectible card games, featuring cross-play between digital and physical versions. Players can scan their physical cards into their collection and claim them to use on the battlefield. The Nintendo Switch version also supports cross-play with Steam and mobile devices. Whether at home or on the go, Warhammer fans will can enjoy Age of Sigmar in a variety of ways.

The Nintendo Switch version also boasts a brand-new single-player campaign called Realm Trials, pitting players against legendary battles to conquer the Mortal Realms. Players can also experience a new battle mode, Arena of Echoes. Drafting decks from two given alliances, players can craft their own from a random selection of cards and battle through a series of League rounds to gain entry to the prize Gauntlet. Losing will drop players through the ranks, eventually ending their run.

“The response for the physical and digital game has already been incredible, and we just can’t wait to watch that grow to new heights,” said PlayFusion CEO and co-founder Mark Gerhard. “With the upcoming release of our Set 3 cards in Savagery, and a whole heap of new features like Arena of Echoes and Realm Trials, there’s always going to be something new to try. And now, there will be a much bigger community to try with.”

Realm Trials and Arena of Echoes join a series of campaigns, multiple game modes including Ranked and Casual play, as well as seasonal leaderboards and challenges.
