Talisman, the classic game of adventure, is getting a new version soon from USAopoly. They're bringing in some of Disney's most beloved characters in Talisman: Kingdom Hearts. USAopoly has posted up a preview video and article so you can see what to expect in this newest edition.
The streets of Gotham are notoriously dangerous, with all manner of thugs, thieves, gangsters, and the occasional super-villain hanging out in every dark alley. But there's one man who's made it his goal to clean up this crime-infested town: Batman. Take on the role of the caped crusader in Talisman: Batman Super-Villains Edition, available now from USAopoly.
The next version of Talisman is up. As you know, USAOpoly has the license to make new versions of the classic game. They've announced that their next version will be based on the Dark Knight, himself, the world's greatest detective, Batman.
It wasn't that long ago that we got the announcement that USAOpoly was going to be making reskinned versions of the Talisman board game. Well, they're delivering in style with the first one. Talisman is getting a Kingdom Hearts variant. All the Keyblades and Disney characters you could stand.
USAOpoly, masters of branded, licensed versions of games, and Games Workshop, the biggest hobby miniatures company, are joining forces. USAOpoly will start making licensed versions of the venerable game, Talisman. If you've enjoyed the game, but felt it could use a bit of a reskin and some updated artwork, this is the announcement for you.

From the announcement:
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Firelands, a new expansion for Talisman Revised 4th Edition. The land of Talisman will face a dire new threat in the legendary Ifrit, once forced to create the Crown of Command. Now, the Ifrit rise again, intent on burning every field to ash and enslaving the surface dwellers. Your quest for the Crown of Command is about to become more frantic and dangerous than ever before.
Talisman fans have been anxiously awaiting The Dragon expansion since we announced it in June. Now, as its release approaches, we look at how you can incorporate The Dragon and its growing draconic menace into games utilizing the two existing Talisman Region expansions The Highland and The Dungeon. Talisman developer, John Goodenough, offers an overview of the three Region expansions.
Discover how the new draconic threat spreads throughout realm, and learn what challenges await should your character attempt to scale the Dragon King’s tower. Rules for Talisman: The Dragon are now available online on the Talisman support page. The Dragon is an epic level expansion that confronts characters with fearsome foes and a growing draconic threat throughout the game. Dragon tokens pace the increasing danger, and three new decks of dragon cards shed light on the three draconic lords as the players encounter them. With just a few new mechanics, The Dragon alters the face of Talisman, providing players with added depth and richness for the play experience. Additionally, the new Inner Region overlay in The Dragon presents players with new choices and challenges as they move toward the end of the game.
