Publisher Iceberg Interactive is further refining its catalog of upcoming games by adding Game Source Studio’s Mahokenshi tactical deck builder to its roster. A new gameplay trailer was revealed at the PC Gaming Show 2022, showcasing new visuals and announcing a 2023 release on PC via Steam.
Mahokenshi is a powerful combination of deck building and hex grid strategy. Players enjoy intense tactical freedom between map choices, different origins, positioning decisions, and turn-based strategy.
As Mahokenshi – a samurai mage – from one of the four Houses of the Sky Islands, players will have to protect the kingdom from encroaching corruption. They explore the celestial islands, build their decks of cards to defeat demons, and evolve their character to protect the land from the evil forces plaguing the land.
Watch the brand new Mahokenshi trailer below – it gives players a first look at gameplay and an introduction to the game structure and card system.
