In a surprising announcement, and just in time for the titular character’s upcoming film, board game company Ravensburger has revealed their first big board game of the year: Wonder Woman: Challenge of the Amazons. Seemingly kept under wraps for two month, the game is the latest in Ravensburger’s partnership with development studio Prospero Hall, a pairing that has previously given us Villainous, Jaws, and Catlantis, but their first partnership with DC Comics, and will feature cover art by Jenny Frison, who did the variant covers for every Wonder Woman comic released during the three-year “Rebirth” era at DC.
The game appears to be a strategy co-op game, where players take on the roles of Diana and her fellow Amazons Diana, Phillipa, Nu’bia, and one time alternate Wonder Woman, Artemis, to fend off the machinations of Ares, Circe, or Cheetah. It will feature Ravensburger’s usual attention to detail and high production value, with plenty of little touches meant to evoke the Greco-Roman aesthetic of Themyscira, like the player pieces being rendered as Classical bronze statues. Players will also use items from all throughout the WW canon, including the Sword of Hephaestus and Diana’s Battle Tiara.
Currently set for pre-order, the game will release on March 1st at Target, your friendly local game store, or on Amazon.
