Upper Deck Entertainment Released Details for Updated ‘Vs System’ Release

Upper Deck has released details on the first new Marvel  VS. System card game release, which will arrive in July, according to hobby news website


Upper Deck confirmed the return of the game after a trial sale at Gen Con last year to gauge interest, and announced plans to launch the game at Gen Con 2015.  The big box will include approximately 400 cards, enough for players to construct a large variety of decks.  The game rules will be streamlined by original game designer Danny Mandel to remove the legacy issues from the previous game incarnation.  Upper Deck also touted the game’s low barrier of entry for new players, since the new game updates level the playing field by removing elements that favor seasoned players.  MSRP is $49.99.

Upper Deck also teased plans to include other licenses outside of Marvel as possible future expansions for the game, including Alien, Predator, The Crow, and Firefly among others.
