Veterans will find ample variety and strategic depth to utilize when crafting their own decks, and beginners can rely on tools such as ‘deck codes’—preconstructed deck lists they can reference to build a new deck—and an in-game ‘hint’ system that suggests the next move to help them take their first steps on the journey to becoming a Shadowverse master!

In Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle, players take the role of a transfer student to Tensei Academy, where they are quickly introduced to the Shadowverse card game by their classmate, Hiro Ryugasaki. The new friends team up with Shadowverse club president (and only member) Rei on a quest to master the popular card battle game and protect the club from the threat of disbandment by winning the national championship. Throughout their adventures, players will be able to explore unique locations around the school and surrounding town, where events and encounters await in the least expected places. Team up with new friends, battle to become the national champions, and save the Shadowverse club from getting shut down!
