USAopoly serves up licensing delight with Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition

Board gamers buckle-up because USAopoly has just served up a triple-helping of licensing prowess at this year’s GenCon with the unveiling of Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition.

The new tabletop title combines the popular Disney and Square Enix collaboration with Games Workshop’s iconic Talisman tabletop mechanic to offer fans a “vibrant gaming experience,” of itself. What’s more, the title will be hitting retail soon.

Inspired by the original Kingdom Hearts video game (a work of collaboration between Disney and Square Enix), Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition features iconic characters and memorable locations in its two to six player adventure.

The game transports players to The Destiny Islands, which have been attacked by the Heartless. Players must venture through three different rings — The Realm Between, The Realm of Light, and The End of the World– acquiring the needed Strength and Magic to seal the Door to Darkness and keep Heartless from consuming the other worlds.

Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition includes a colourful game board featuring Never Land, Traverse Towers, Atlantica, Agrabah, Wonderland, Olympus Coliseum, and other known Kingdom Hearts locations. It also stars 11 playable characters including Sora, King Mickey, Goofy, Donald Duck and Aqua.

More than 250 Cards and Objects feature iconic storylines and characters from the critically acclaimed property, while Follower Cards include fan-favourites like Simba, Genie, Bambi, Dumbo, Tinker Bell and Mushu, as they help players complete their quests.

Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition will be available in local retailers in North America and Europe this autumn.

Prior to the game’s official release, Talisman: Kingdom Hearts Edition was first fully playable at GenCon 2019 (Aug. 1-4).
