About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'Mahokenshi' Publishing Picked Up By Iceberg, Shows Off New Visuals, Delayed Until 2023 - Screens & Trailer

by Judy on June 13, 2022 @ 8:07 p.m. PDT

Mahokenshi is a unique blend of adventure, deck-building and deep hex-grid strategy.

Create your deck, out-smart your enemy, battle challenging demons and adventure through the Celestial Islands to protect your home from the forces of corruption.

Mahokenshi is a potent combination of deck building and hex-grid strategy that intertwines the deep tactical play of card games, with the strategic turn-based thinking of board games. As Mahokenshi - a Samurai Mage from one of the Celestial Isles' four houses - players need to protect the Kingdom against an encroaching corruption. Through strategy, positioning and tactics, they will need to utilise over 300 lovingly illustrated cards to explore the world, vanquish powerful demons and banish the evil that plagues the land.

Brimming with challenge, Mahokenshi's new development approach invites players to feedback their experiences, participate in development discussions and explore a vibrant world filled with quests, cards and formidable foes, all to restore peace to the Celestial Isles one hex at a time.

Publisher Iceberg Interactive further sharpens its catalogue of upcoming games by adding Game Source Studio's tactical deck-builder Mahokenshi to its roster.

Previously announced for 2022, Mahokenshi will release in 2023 on PC (Steam).

Key Features:

  • Become a Powerful Samurai Mage: Travel the beautiful lands and build your card decks, wielding blade and magic to protect the floating Celestial Islands from powerful foes who seek to corrupt them. Evolve your character with every playthrough, and become the Mahokenshi the world needs.
  • Choose Your Samurai House: Will you hail from the sturdy House of Sapphire? The cunning House of Topaz? The fierce House of Ruby? Or the secretive House of Jade? Each house draws its strength from a different elemental spirit and helps you create different playstyles.
  • Tactics, Exploration, and Deckbuilding Combined: There are more than 300 lovingly illustrated cards to discover. Begin with a basic set of cards and choose how to build your deck as you defeat formidable foes, uncover treasures, and find remote locations. Evolve your playstyle and strategy as your deck grows and leverage the strengths of your samurai house to create powerful combos.
  • Immerse Yourself in theCelestial Islands: Explore the vibrant and beautifully designed 3D maps. Meet the different people of the Celestial Islands, save villages, track, and defeat deadly demons. See your battles brought to life with fully animated characters.
