Fully decked out
Twenty years ago a bizarre amalgamation of card game, board game, and video game first released on the Sega Saturn, and made waves with its strategic depth, addictive gameplay and unique concept. Subsequent titles have shuffled the formula since, but that core blend of number-crunching, dice-rolling and card collecting remained,...
Of dice and decks
Of all the games we got to try out at E3 this year, one stood out as having perhaps the least likely origin story: Culdcept Revolt. This 3DS title, published by Nintendo in Japan but brought Westward by NIS America, is the latest game in a series that started with a Japan-exclusive game for the Sega Saturn. Combining board game...
It's in the cards
Culdcept Revolt is coming to the Nintendo 3DS later this year, and NIS America is doing its level best to educate potential players on how the game actually works. A short time ago we covered the opening of the game's official site which ran down the basic rules, and now NIS America has released a video which gives you a full...
Board of games?
As Nintendo is so fond of telling us, the 3DS isn't dead yet. There are a host of new games coming to the best-selling handheld this year, one of which is Culdcept Revolt, a turn-based strategy title which plays like your typical board game, complete with dice throws and special tiles to land on. Given that Culdcept Revolt is a...
Let's see what the deal is

Its blend of fantasy and card play does certainly have the potential to be a sales success, even if a Western release seems to be a distant hope; we're going to tune in anyway to see the second Nintendo Direct dedicated to...
It's on the cards
In early May Nintendo hosted a Japanese Nintendo Direct for Culdcept Revolt, and interesting 3DS title heading for a July release in the country. It was an intriguing watch, and it's a big deal in Japan as it's the first entry in the series for a number of years. Nintendo is now lining up a second Direct dedicated to the game,...
Let's see what cards we're dealt
This is the very definition of a title that may be a big deal in Japan but seems unlikely to make it to the West, which adds a bit of extra intrigue. Culdcept is a strategy series driven by card collecting and deck management, a video game take on a popular real-world game genre. Culdcept Revolt will be the first...
We're seeing a lot more unity in global releases - albeit with localisation delays - than in past years, with a number of intriguing titles making their way out of Japan to the West. Nevertheless a number of titles are still mysteries to all but the most enthusiastic importers, and one such 3DS release is even getting its own Nintendo...
