Welcome to Crossover Collusion, a series where we talk about the crossover games featured in the upcoming Millennium Blades Collusion Kickstarter. We’ll take a look at why we love these games, and how they’ve inspired the cards in their respective Millennium Blades sets!
Kamigami Battles is the latest original property from Japanime Games, and is a spiritual-successor-slash-reimplementation of their classic Kanzume Goddess. Kamigami is a fast-paced, highly interactive deckbuilding game that leans heavily on character powers to make each experience unique. Unlike most deckbuilders, the name of the game is direct combat–you win once you destroy all of your enemies!
Why We Love It
Kamigami has similar gameplay to the original Kanzume Goddess (upon which we’ve based our thoughts), but the new visuals they’ve put onto the game are truly stunning. It makes for a great light-weight combat deckbuilder, and the variable player-powers (in terms of different patron deities you can control) give you different strategies to pursue in each game. It’s the kind of game that after playing, you immediately want to grab another god and try a new strategy, just to see what you could have done differently.
Where to Get It
Kamigami Battles is currently in production, but you can get an early copy from Japanime’s site:
Translating it to Millennium Blades
The gods in Kamigami Battles allow you to sacrifice your own life points to produce incredibly powerful effects. We’ve captured this aspect in Millennium Blades by allowing a player to sacrifice their own cards in order to get high-tier effects.
Millennium Blades: Collusion is now on Kickstarter! Come and check it out to get these cards and more!
