The 2015 digital board game is getting a physical edition! Armello’s physical editions are coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 13, 2018. These special versions of the strategy game will also come with physical soundtracks.

Developer SOEDESCO released a new gameplay trailer for the Armello physical release:

In case you’ve forgotten about what Armello is all about, the developers also have a synopsis for the game:

Armello is a grim fairytale that comes to life as a digital turn-based strategy board game. The swashbuckling adventure combines deep tactical card play, rich tabletop strategy, and a character role-playing system.

Armello features a gorgeous world which procedurally generates a new map each and every game, complete with a dynamic quest system. No two games are ever the same. The player quests, schemes, explores, casts spells and faces off against monsters and other players. There’s only one ultimate end goal in mind: storming the palace and becoming King or Queen of Armello.

Features

  • Experience the true tabletop feel, complete with physics-based dice
  • Exploit the day & night cycle to play cards or take actions, even when it’s not your turn
  • Backstab friend and foe in single player and multiplayer battles
  • Roleplay each of Armello’s 8 playable heroes
  • Quest across procedurally generated maps that change every game
  • Collect 120+ beautifully animated in-game cards

We also reviewed Armello back in 2015! Here’s a snippet:

The kingdom is in peril, under attack from Rot, which has managed to corrupt the king. You’re one of four forest folk that have decided to put themselves forward to replace the dying monarch. Ruling is no easy task, however, so the next ruler needs to prove themselves more worthy of the title than the other three hopefuls. You’re able to fight the king directly, ascend beyond his level or even mercifully heal him in a bid to swipe his position, which one you pick will dictate your experience with Armello.

Armello’s special edition releases March 13 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
