Mobile board game maker Marmalade Game Studio is bringing JUMANJI: The Curse Returns to the Nintendo Switch on June 13th. The game is a board game with card battle mini game mechanics.
Get ready – the jungle’s coming to challenge you! With every roll of the dice, dangerous wildlife escapes into the town and can only be stopped by you reaching the center of the board. Be careful, if the jungle overpowers you and your team – everyone loses!
GATHER YOUR TEAM
You’ll need a full team of 4 players to defeat the jungle. If you’re missing a player or two, AI companions will join and fill empty spots. Become Alan, Sarah, Peter and Judy, or the brand-new characters, Coach Holly and Lucas Garcia.
CHOOSE YOUR TOKEN
Choose your magical Jumanji Token: Elephant, Rhino, Crocodile or Monkey.
FACE THE DANGERS
Survive encounters with creatures and plants from the deepest depths of the Jumanji jungle. You’ll face giant Mosquitos, Lions, Rhinos, Crocodiles, and even Carnivorous Plants. You’ll also need to dodge attacks from the legendary hunter, Van Pelt!
PLAY IN DIFFERENT MODES
Play in Online Multiplayer or join one friend and two AI characters in Local-Play Mode, or join a complete AI team in Single Player Mode.
EXPERIENCE THE BOARD GAME + CARD-BASED STRATEGY
Dive headfirst into a mash-up of the classic board game and fast paced card-based strategy. Face jungle wildlife with an ever-shuffling deck and send every danger back into the game. Improve your deck between rounds for a different experience every time.
EXPLORE BRANTFORD & WINTER RESORT
Play your way around a map of iconic locations in Brantford, from the Parrish Mansion to the Sir Sav-a-Lot supermarket.
Travel beyond Brantford! Jungle drums are sending shockwaves through the icy valley of a Winter Resort Map. Gather a team, face a new danger, and explore a festive Winter wonderland!
• Play as AJ the snowboarder and novice skier Yuki Sato!
• Add the Mountain Bear and Snow Leopard tokens to your collection
It’s high-altitude fun. As long as the jungle drums don’t cause an avalanche.
