Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - The Game Now Available

One of the most iconic Batman comics, Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns has been read by millions of comic book fans. Now, you can head down into that classic story with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - The Game, now available from Cryptozoic.

From the announcement:

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns — The Game is a solo board game experience in which you don the cape and cowl and journey through Frank Miller’s iconic comic book series. Instead of traditional leveling up, this is a game of attrition. As Batman, you must come out of retirement and do everything you can to beat back a relentless tide of ruthless mutants, cops, and press looking to bring you down. Get ready to face villains like Two-Face, The Joker, and the leader of the Mutant Gang… as well as your powerful former ally, Superman!

The game is played over the course of four epic “Books,” with the results of each carrying over to the next. Each Book features unique rules, allies, abilities, and epic boss battles. You can also play each Book standalone, with setup instructions for easy, normal, and hard modes. There’s even a VS Mode that lets one player take control of Batman’s enemies.

The game is offered in a regular edition and a Deluxe Edition featuring 17 miniature figures designed in the distinct Frank Miller art style of the comic!
