On the gaming front, Hellboy fans are getting their wish for 2018 with the arrival of a brand new board game from Mantic Games, but first the enterprise has to hit its Kickstarter goals.
The Hellboy board game will be “a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes”, according to Dark Horse. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, and can explore “gothic locations” and as well as “uncovering ancient artifacts”.
The Kickstarter campaign is planned for April 2018, and the game will feature “pre-assembled plastic miniatures” aimed to reproduce the look and feel of the comic series.
Dark Horse Comics’ Chief Business Development Officer Nick McWhorter says:
Dark Horse is excited to work with Mantic Games on a Hellboy board game. Mantic is not only a leader in the Miniatures Board Game category, but also have a thorough understanding of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. storylines and how to integrate them into a game. We’re confident they can deliver a board game that fans of Hellboy and miniatures games alike can appreciate!
Neil Marshall’s forthcoming Hellboy film is also currently in pre-production, starring David Harbour, Sasha Lane, Ian McShane, Penelope Mitchell, and Milla Jovovich.
