The trading card game (and also anime gaming genre) genre has really seen a resurgence as of late with major hits like Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft making waves, along with the classic Magic the Gathering that will always continue to see growth no matter how old. We can’t forget Pokemon TCG as well as Yu-Gi-Oh, but at the moment there’s a lot of talk around one TCG PC title and that’s Shadowverse.

Taking what you know and love from games we’ve mentioned and tacking on a more anime feel to not only the character lineup but overall presentation, Shadowverse is the talk of the town and comes with a lot great features that newcomers to the TCG universe will enjoy. Rewarding you with 50 packs straight out of the gates, Shadowverse throws you into a unique fantasy world equipped with its own storyline to keep you engaged for hours on end. With a variety of cool classes to choose from such as Urias and his Bloodcraft, to the more heal driven Eris and her Havencraft, there’s a plethora of ways to play the game and outplay your opponent on the rank ladder. While the game has a competitive scene for you to take part in, Shadowverse can be enjoyed casually as well and allows you to come up with creative decks to avoid damage and secure victory.

Shadowverse is a highly polished mobile collectible card game by the developers of Rage of Bahamut and Granblue Fantasy, borrowing some assets and featuring a similar Japanese art style. The game features class-based card battling similar to Hearthstone, but taking it a step further with highly distinct playstyles and resources available to each class. Build decks around seven different classes, including Forestcraft and its inexpensive followers that unleash stronger allies; Dragoncraft which relies on cards that generate play points to unleash expensive cards early on; Shadowcraft that generates and spends shadows to unleash powerful abilities; and other classes each with highly specific styles and card types available. Evolve cards on the board to increase their destructive and defensive power, and trigger additional abilities. Collect and craft over 400 cards with gorgeous anime-style fantasy art and distinct abilities. Use your custom-built decks in the game’s voice-acted campaign or in its many multiplayer modes.
