Cardfight!! Vanguard is a relative newcomer to the card game scene, having been released in 2014. But that hasn’t slowed down its progress at all. The whole franchise is incredibly popular, having swollen from a minor entry into the card game scene into a titanic entity with multiple video games, anime spinoffs and merchandising. And now, FuRyu is working on a port of the iconic card game for the Switch and PS4.
As part of the production of the game, FuRyu has drafted some A-list talent to help design and produce the game. This includes some original songs by popular band, Argonavis. Band members Maeda Seiji and Ito Masahiro were on hand to show off some of their skills, and to demonstrate some of the music that will feature in the new game.
And being that this is a Cardfight!! Vanguard title, fans can expect plenty of card game action. The full ruleset from the tabletop version is being implemented, so expect an experience friendly to both new and veteran players of Cardfight!! Vanguard. Fans of the anime segments of the brand will also get to see some characters they no doubt love, so that’s pretty cool too.
In terms of story, Akira Itō, Satoshi Nakamura and Bushiroad are collaborating to write the storyline for the game, much in the same way they teamed up to create the original card game. The story is entirely unique to the video game, and there will also be characters exclusive to the game as well.
