PlayFusion and Games Workshop have announced that the super-popular and hugely successful trading card game Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions is headed to Nintendo Switch.

For those not in the know, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions is a collectable card game that blends physical and digital card collections; essentially, players can scan physical cards into their collections to claim them and then take them on to conquer the battlefield. The game has now sold more than 20 million physical cards and more than 1 million digital matches have been played.

Players can take the custom-crafted decks from one of the four Grand Alliances and challenge friends across the world, with cross-platform play being supported across all playable devices. Mark Gerhard, CEO and Co-Founder of PlayFusion, has said the following in a press release today:

“The team are utterly thrilled with the opportunity to bring Warhammer Champions to new audiences and new platforms. The response for the physical and digital game has already been incredible, and we just can't wait to watch that grow to new heights. With the release of our Set 2 cards in Onslaught, and a whole heap of new features we have planned, there's always going to be something new to try. And now, there will be a much bigger community to try with!”


Today's announcement also reveals that the game is coming to Steam in February; the Nintendo Switch version is expected later in "Q1" 2019.
