Funko Unveils New Marvel Battleworld: Mystery of the Thanostones Tabletop Game
Coming this summer!
Clear off some tablespace, because Marvel Battleworld: Mystery of the Thanostones is coming!
The brand new Funko tabletop gaming system, based on the Marvel Universe, combines micro collectible characters, cards and gaming, allowing kids to battle against Thanos in gameplay unleashed through a Battle Ball.
Each Battle Ball contains a surprise of two Marvel collectible characters, Hero Cards, Battle Cards, and a pair of dice, all for a highly accessible price point. Players can collect Marvel micro heroes ranging from icons like Iron Man, Captain Marvel and Groot, as well as characters like Valkyrie, Gamora and Throg.
Additionally, accompanying the game new Marvel Battleworld animated shorts are coming to Disney XD, Marvel HQ, and YouTube. Created by Funko Animation Studios, in collaboration with Marvel, this series will introduce children to a new plan by villain Thanos to trap Marvel heroes in Battleworld.
“We are thrilled that Marvel has chosen to expand the Funko collaboration to engage their younger fans with a new category of products and animation collaboration,” said Brian Mariotti, Chief Executive Officer of Funko. “Funko enters the toy aisle for the first time with a product offering of tremendous value. In addition to two micro-collectible characters inside the Battle Ball, the child can battle independently or team up with friends to defeat Thanos through gameplay. This kind of product assortment is both what kids want and what retailers are keen to offer parents.”
“Battleworld offers kids a completely new way to play and interact with the Marvel brand and universe of characters they know and love,” said Paul Gitter, SVP, Marvel Licensing. “The innovative tabletop gaming plus action-packed storytelling gives kids an immersive experience that’s fresh for the Marvel Brand.”
