X-Men: Battle of the Atom is the “next-generation card game” coming to mobile courtesy of Marvel and GREE.

Polygon reports that the game will tie in to a similarly-named comic, and will see players teaming up to battle many villains, some of which will be entirely new to the X-Men canon.

There will be hundreds of cards to collect, and the game will have a regularly updated narrative to follow the time-twisting comic arc.

“X-Men: Battle of the Atom brings card battle to the next level,” said Sanku Shino, senior VP of marketing & developer relations at GREE. “It includes cutting-edge features like team-battle and eye-popping graphics by Marvel artists to allow fans new and old to experience the classic X-Men story arcs and characters in new and innovative ways.”

“We are delighted to be working with GREE to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of X-Men,” said Andreea Enache-Thune, senior VP of games and digital distribution at Marvel. “By teaming up with GREE, a leader in mobile gaming, we are confident that fans around the world will enjoy this exciting new way to experience and connect with X-Men.”

The game will hit iOS and Google Play in the fall. We’ll have more details as they come.

Thanks to Game Mob for the trailer.

    I thought there was a new trailer or something, but this was actually revealed a few weeks back at least. Thanks anyway for anyone that didn’t see it! I hope Polaris gets to be in it considering the people working on this claim it covers all 50 years of X-Men.

    The geek in me wants to play this just because I’m a huge X-Men fan, but the realist in me knows this is probably going to end up being just another boring iOS card game where your chances of winning aren’t defined by your skill and card choices, but by how much cash you’re willing to put into it.
