Upper Deck ramps up Huntik range

Multiplayer online game, organised play championship, a toy line and new TCGs set to boost the property in the UK.

In a 2D flash animated world, players of the new online game will be able to play games as individuals as well as competing against other players.

Successful missions will provide rewards on in-game currency, titans, inventory items and elevated status, with the ultimate goal of discovery and becoming an accomplished Seeker.

Upper Deck’s Huntik TCG, Secrets and Seekers, launched in March and will be expanded throughout the year with Legendary Saga in summer, Labyrinth of Doom and Omens & Legacies in autumn and extra items in time for Christmas.

The launches will be supported with organised play events with store, city and national championships, beginning at the end of the year throughout Europe.

Upper Deck has also developed a line of articulated action figures, launching in two waves in September and November 2009.

Big Bocca and Rainbow Spa have announced the production of a second season of 26 new episodes of the animation. The first series has ranked as the number three most watched programme on Jetix in the UK since its launch.

The property now has 41 licensees in total.
