According to Polygon, a new Kingdom Hearts boardgame is in development!  A Kingdom Hearts version of the popular Tabletop game, Talisman, is coming sometime in 2019!


Designed by noted gamemaker, Elisa Teague, the Kingdom Hearts edition of Talisman promises to be an experience that brings the best of both worlds to your tabletop. Polygon reports:

Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition is in development at The OP (aka USAopoly), the company that publishes licensed versions of classic games like Monopoly, Clue, and Risk based on pop culture properties like Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and Marvel. Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition is based on Warhammer maker Games Workshop’s Talisman: The Magical Quest Game, the classic tabletop game that was first published more than 35 years ago and is now in its revised fourth edition.

The Kingdom Hearts-inspired version of Talisman will be playable for two to six players. As Sora, Kairi, Riku, King Mickey, and Goofy, players will need to “acquire the needed Strength and Magic to seal the Door to Darkness and keep Heartless from consuming the communal worlds,” according to an official press release.

Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition will feature a game board with three regions (including locations like Neverland and Traverse Town), custom six-sided dice, Munny-themed currency, and the requisite Disney-fueled nostalgia.

No word yet on release date, but we'll keep you posted! Thanks to Audo for letting us know about this!

Watch Nomura put canon story elements into this board game.
I don't know how he'll do it, but we all know that he will.

I thought I was gonna be the cool one for telling you guys....*Axel's voice* BUT I'M TOO LATE! *cries in ninja'd*

Anyway, I had no clue Talisman was still being made before hearing this. I have the original somewhere.

Funny how there's no Donald piece.

I guess my main confusion is how there can be 6 players with only 5 pieces...just kinda sounds like they forgot to include Donald in the press release unless there is some kinda "game master" in this? I literally don't know what Talisman is so I don't really know how it works.

But I want it either way.

She's not an "it"!

Should have replaced Kairi with Donald. Goofy being included without him is weird.
Donald is probably in. They say there are 6 pieces to use. They probably counted "King Mickey" as two pieces and forgot to add Donald.
