I ran across this today - press release from April 20th regarding the new Talisman release. Talisman 2nd edition was one of my favorite boardgames when I was a kid so much so that I probably rather foolishly spent too much on Ebay about 5 years ago putting a complete set together with all expansions that now just sits around in my closet
. I can't wait for the new release, and then to top it off Capcom is bringing it to Xbox Live/PS3/PC as well!
Text below:20/April/2007 - Black Industries reveals more Talisman details!
Black Industries are pleased to announce the global street date for the new edition of Talisman is the 1st October 2007. The legendary magical quest game is back, and set to take the market by storm.
Black Industries can also confirm the recommended retail price for the game will be $50 US, £35 sterling and €45.
Mal Green, Head of Global Sales for Black Industries, said, “We are astounded at just how fantastic this new edition looks, and at such a great price point it will be affordable for everyone. The quality of this edition is unrivalled in the hobby board games market at present. Talisman will raise the bar.”
These announcements follow hot on the heels of a press release earlier in the month from Capcom® Entertainment, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, revealing plans for a digitally downloadable version of Talisman. Based very closely on the board game with a 3D representation of the board and animated productions, players scour dungeons, attack other creatures, cast effects-laden spells and use magical items and weapons to enhance their actions. Talisman will be available on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation 3 Network and PC this winter, to complement the highly anticipated launch of the board game.
Talisman is a cult fantasy board game for 2 – 6 people. Players control a myriad of characters from a heroic warrior to a powerful sorcerer. In this perilous adventure, play centres around the journey of these gallant heroes to find and claim the Crown of Command, a magical artefact with the power to destroy all rivals and make the bearer the true ruler of the kingdom. Only with strength, courage, and wisdom will players be able to survive the ultimate test and beat their opponents to victory.
