Take up arms against the legions of shades and other villainous creatures that have invaded the realm

Experience exciting card-based battles that offer a significant twist in the traditional collectible card gameplay with Shadowverse. In this game, The Morning Star has slammed the gates to the shadowy realm wide open, allowing legions of shades and other creatures to slink their way into the now-darkened world. Take up arms against these creatures and fight to save the realm from their taint.

For most parts, Shadowverse’s gameplay is similar to most of the MMOCCGs out there. There are different card types, such as Followers and Spells, that you can play using “play points”. Some of these cards also have special abilities that can be triggered if the ability requirement is fulfilled.

There’s an interesting card type in this game though and it is called Amulet. It’s played like a Follower card since it will occupy a spot in the playing field (5 cards in play, max), but provide a boost much like a Spell card would. Since the Amulet card can’t be directly attacked by any Follower, you actually need a specific Spell card or a Follower with specific ability to remove a played Amulet card.

There are also various characters that you can play as in Shadowverse, each of them featuring their own set of (mostly passive) skills. For instance, the Runecrafter, Isabelle, is able to use Spell cards to “power-up” other cards with the Spellboost ability, while the Swordcraft, Erika, has Commanders and Lieutenant cards in her deck that can boost up the attack and defense values of other lowly ranked Follower cards.

Each character is played quite differently so you can pick the ones with a playstyle that you prefer. Of course, if you’re not sure, you can simply play them all. All the base characters, along with their individual story-based campaigns, are available for free but you can buy new heroes via the in-game shop using the game currency, Rupies, or the premium currency, crystals.

The deck-building and card-crafting aspects in Shadowverse are rather straightforward as well. Each deck contains up to 40 cards in total and you can build decks with cards that are allowed for a specific character. Cards are usually obtained from card packs that you buy or as rewards from completed matches, but you can liquefy the ones you don’t need into Vials, which can in turn be used to craft new cards.


That being said, one of the most significant features that added an extra depth to the tradition collectible card gameplay is the Evolution process. In this game, you can evolve your Followers mid-battle 2 or 3 times, depending whether you go first or second respectively. The evolution process buffs up your Follower and sometimes unlock a new ability. It also allows you to use a recently played card to immediately attack your opponent’s Followers. This process not only adds in a fair amount of unpredictability to the match; it also allows players to pitch a comeback if they are able to use their Evolutions wisely.

Aside from campaigns that you can play via the Solo Mode option, you can also play a practice match against an AI or go straight to tackling other players in the game’s Multiplayer mode. Of course, if you’re looking for something more challenging, you might want to drop by the Arena and try the Take Two game mode instead.

With a unique gameplay, a nice lineup of heroes to play as, immersive storylines as well as excellent anime graphics and sound to boot, Shadowverse is a solid MMOCCG that players, especially fans of both anime and collectible card games, would enjoy. Try it for free today! Shadowverse Summary
