In the What If...? universe you might believe this to happen. In the Marvel Team-Up comics you always got the best of two heroes or groups. Well now we get the best of Superhero Trading Cards and Video Games? Yes True Believer, you heard me right.

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced further details of its forthcoming Marvel Trading Card Game for PSP and PC, and has confirmed a 31st May release for the title. A specially tailored version for the Nintendo DS will follow in July.

Based on the popular trading card game from Upper Deck Entertainment, the Marvel Trading Card Game allows players to collect over 800 cards based on their favorite Marvel characters and compete in cross-platform online play in a variety of different modes.


The Marvel Trading Card Game lets players assemble their own deck and take on different challenges to gain more cards based on legendary Marvel characters such as Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider and more. In the game’s single player story mode, players choose to play as hero or villain, and select a series of enemies to battle. In between each clash, the game’s scenario unfolds via detailed comic book scenes as player moves on to the next adversary.

The game uses Upper Deck Entertainment’s hugely popular Vs. System - a complex game engine much-loved by Trading Card fans, and offering a massive challenge to newcomers to the genre. The Vs. System showcases massive Super Hero battles within the established trading card game format. Each player begins the game with their own team of Marvel characters, and tries to defeat the cards of their opponent. The Vs. System is specifically designed to be played at all levels of competition and can be played in a variety of formats.

The Utilizing a sophisticated online network, the Marvel Trading Card Game lets players interact with an online community to compete across a variety of game modes and tournaments, trade cards with other players and even purchase new cards from the game’s online store. A special community website has already been established here, and offers links to tournaments and tips. Dedicated and localized European sites will also go live at launch, while the European games will also include a redemption code allowing players to add new cards to their game on visiting the sites.

The Marvel Trading Card Game also offers several different modes that use each player’s personal decks for an authentic tournament experience for four or more players. Local multiplayer is supported in the Nintendo DS and PSP versions of the game through each system’s wireless link capabilities, while PC users are using a LAN-based mode for multiplayer battles.

Online play will also allow users of the PSP and the PC versions to play the Marvel Trading Card Game via the Internet, while Nintendo DS players can use Nintendo’s Wi-Fi Connection to play online. Players on all platforms will be able to participate in regular sanctioned tournaments for valuable prizes, while every copy of the game will also come with a special Trading Card.
