X-Men: Battle of the Atom card game heading to iOS & Android this fall, trailer inside

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.
