Steve Jackson Games has announced plans to release a Mars Attacks TCG sometime next year. The game, called Munchkin Apocalypse: Mars Attacks, drops players into the end of the world and challenges them to acquire loot and level up. According to Jackson’s press release, “Its humorous text and cartoon art make it only the latest hit game in the best-selling Munchkin line.”
“We’ve always been huge fans of Mars Attacks and it’s been a thrill to see it return in such a big way,” said Andrew Hackard, Munchkin Brand Manager for Steve Jackson Games. “The brand’s outrageous sci-fi action and off-beat, dark humor will play very well within the World of Munchkin and we can’t wait to show fans what we’ve got in store!” Steve Jackson adds “We are going to be completely faithful to the original Mars Attacks concepts. We are going to blow things up without reason or mercy or even very good aim. We will continue until the squashy Earthmen force us back to make a last stand on our dying desert home. It’s them or us.”
Munchkin Apocalypse is an ongoing series from Steve Jackson Games. The Mars Attack cards will be available in 15-card booster packs and will use art from the original 1962 card series. It hits stores next summer.
