Level 99 Games is bringing a popular Japanese board game to North America. Created by BakaFire Party, Sakura Arms is a two-player dueling card game. The game is described as easy-to-play and easy-to-learn where players will select two Megami (Japanese goddesses) each and build a deck that highlights their strengths and expose your opponent’s weaknesses. The game is designed to take roughly 20 minutes and sounds pretty great.
Designed by respected indie graphic artist known under the pseudonym BakaFire, Sakura Arms’ beautifully designed artwork complements an impressive gameplay experience that allows for escapism into alternate realities as one of eighteen Japanese goddesses, also known as a Megami. Perfect for the game night host, tabletop game enthusiasts, and classic Japanophiles alike, Sakura Arms’ will be translated into English for its debut in the North American market, allowing residents to enjoy the worldwide phenomenon with a full understanding of the characters, complexities, and strategies of the game. During a period where people are spending even more time at home surrounded by family than ever before, Sakura Arms’ availability comes at the perfect time for those looking to reduce exposure to screen time and engage in a social activity that is both easy to learn and challenging to master.
If you’re interested in checking out Sakura Arms, you’ll want to head on over to Kickstarter starting October 27 to back the game’s arrival in America in 2021. You can find a little more information over on the Level 99 website.
