Dark Horse has announced a licensing partnership with Mantic Games allowing for the production of a Hellboy board game!
The new board game is described as a cooperative experience where players will face off against some of the most famous Hellboy Universe villains by taking control of up to four BPRD members including Hellboy, Abe Sapien, and Roger the Homunculus. Though it doesn’t have an official release date as of yet, it is slated to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018. It will feature pre-assembled plastic miniatures that are said to accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy Universe.
Hellboy has appeared in many graphic novels and comics, short story collections, two animated films, two live-action films, merchandise of all types, and there is also a new Hellboy live-action reboot in the works directed by Neil Marshall staring Stranger Things’ David Harbour as Hellboy, Sasha Lane, Ian McShane, Penelope Mitchell, and Resident Evil’s Mila Jovovich as the Blood Queen. Now we get to see the Hellboy Universe receive the board game treatment by Mantic Games, who have also done the Walking Dead board game!
“Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth…The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced cooperative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.” – Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO.
“Dark Horse is excited to work with Mantic Games on a Hellboy board game…Mantic is not only a leader in the Miniatures Board Game category, but also have a thorough understanding of Hellboy and the BPRD storylines and how to integrate them into a game. We’re confident they can deliver a board game that fans of Hellboy and miniatures games alike can appreciate!” – Nick McWhorter, Dark Horse Comics’ Chief Business Development Officer
