Roseville, MN – March 16, 2021 Asmodee USA announced their exclusive English language distribution agreement for the My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game from Jasco Games. By combining their powers in a fight against boredom, this partnership will allow fans of the popular anime series and UniVersus™ CCG to experience the narrative in a new way.
In the My Hero Academia CCG, players build powerful decks around their favorite heroes, like All Might, Izuku Midoriya and Katsuki Bakugo, and battle against other fan favorite characters from Class 1-A. The My Hero Academia CCG utilizes Jasco Games’ popular and proven UniVersus system. New players are being kept in mind, ensuring any fan of CCGs or the My Hero Academia show will enjoy the game. Asmodee USA and Jasco Games will also support the game with organized play to bolster the community around the CCG. Additional information on organized play will be available in the future.
“At Jasco Games, we’re committed to creating high quality, memorable games and are excited to partner with an industry leader that shares our values,” said Jason Hawronsky, CEO & Founder of Jasco Games. “Together with Asmodee, we look forward to bringing the high-energy My Hero Academia CCG to a wide audience.”
“The My Hero Academia CCG is an exciting opportunity for Asmodee and our customers,” remarked Andre Kieren, Head of USA Distribution. “We couldn’t be happier to partner with Jasco Games to bring this exciting license and game to retailers and their communities.”
The My Hero Academia CCG will launch in Summer 2021. Asmodee USA will work with select distributors to ensure the game is available to as wide an audience as possible. Stores will have access to several products for Wave 1 of the game, including: the 2-Player Rival Deck to start players off in the game; booster boxes containing 24 packs (10 random cards per pack), Deck-Loadable Content packs with set Character Cards and their Attacks, and playmats featuring iconic characters from the anime.
