Dungeonbowl announced as successor to Blood Bowl

Cynaide has announced a follow up to fantasy sports sim Blood Bowl, leaving behind some of the trappings of American football in favour of, well, traps.

As well as being placed inside a dungeon, Dungeonbowl differs from Blood Bowl in a couple of ways. Teams are composed of three races rather than one, and teams need only make one touchdown to win the match.

Oh, and the ball is inside on of six treasure chests randomly set with explosive traps, and the arenas are filled with teleporter pads. You know. Otherwise, the same turn-based ruleset applies.

No release date or platforms have been announced so far. Dungeonbowl and Blood Bowl are both based on a Games Workshop franchise, a spin-off of Warhammer. Blood Bowl released in 2009 on DS, PC, PlayStation 3, PSP and Xbox 360.

Thanks, Blue.
