Ravensburger turns to the Marvel Universe for latest Villainous board game release

Ravensburger’s popular Villainous game is taking on the Marvel Comic Universe with the launch of Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power, featuring five of Marvel’s most popular – and most evil – villains.

The new title – scheduled for launch this August – will feature new game mechanics, allowing players to accomplish new dastardly deeds in order to fulfil their dark destinies. Players will be able to take on the role of five Marvel malefactors, including Thanos, Hela, and Ultron.

The final two villains of the line-up will be announced in the coming months.

“We are thrilled to introduce fans of the Marvel Universe to the Villainous experience,” said Florian Baldenhofer, executive vice president of Ravensburger North America.

“Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power continues our legacy of innovative and engaging entertainment that will appeal to both passionate fans and casual gamers.”

Ravensburger’s popular Villainous brand first caught the attention of the tabletop community in 2018 with the launch of Disney Villainous: The Worst Takes it All. The line of strategy games have since gone on to sell more than 800,000 copies worldwide.

The game even took home the Toy Association’s prestigious 2019 Toy of the Year Award, while its sequel title Disney’s Villainous: Evil Comes Prepared is currently a finalist for the upcoming 2020 Toy of the Year Award.

Designed by Prospero Hall, Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power will be available from August this year. The title is suitable for two to four players aged 12 and upwards.
