Kingdom Hearts fans have even more to look forward to in 2019, as a board game adaptation was recently confirmed. Offering different gameplay than a core title like Kingdom Hearts 3, Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition will feature the strategy and complexity of Talisman: The Magical Quest Game from Games Workshop, but with a fun Kingdom Hearts twist.

Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition plays the same way as Talisman itself, where 2-6 players journey through different map regions and complete various quests, with approximately 1-2 hours of total playtime per game. Unlike your traditional Talisman game though, Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition includes playable characters including King Mickey, Goofy, Sora, Riku, and Kairi.

The official press release from USAopoly notes that players will need guides these characters and “acquire the needed Strength and Magic to seal the Door to Darkness and keep Heartless from consuming the communal worlds.” The game has been reimagined from top to bottom with Kingdom Hearts in mind.

Offering three Kingdom Hearts locations including Traverse City, players can expect currency in the form of Munny, unique six-sided dice to roll, Gummy Paths, and other nods to Kingdom Hearts lore. There’s no release date for Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition as of the time of this writing.

USAopoly recommends keeping an eye on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram channels for more details on the board game in the near future.
