Grand Cru adds fantasy to card games
Finnish Grand Cru has teamed up with online and mobile games studio Nexon to launch fantasy card battle role-playing game (RPG) Battlejack.
Set in the world of Midgard, Battlejack blends together fantasy, steampunk and fairytale magic. Players will have to defeat the evil forces of Chaos through story-driven levels, in which battles will play out in turn-based, blackjack-inspired card battles.
The game will be available on mobile devices worldwide this summer.
“Battlejack is a fast-paced card battle experience with high-risk, high-reward tactics rooted in the simple, yet highly strategic game of blackjack that is universally understood by people around the world,” says Markus Pasula, CEO, Grand Cru. “Whether players are fans of RPGs or classic card games, mobile gamers across the globe will feel right at home when they pick up Battlejack for the first time.”
Nexon, founded in South Korea, develops online games for PC and mobile and currently services nearly 100 titles in almost 200 countries. The company is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
Nexon’s general manager Lawrence Koh compliments Grand Cru for “crafting fresh, fun and engaging worlds on mobile”.
“With Battlejack they’ve created a journey with an incredible twist to a timeless classic that will be enjoyed for years,” he notes.
