Funko has announced two new gaming experiences for fans: a board game called Funkoverse, and a new mobile game called Funko Pop! Blitz.
“It’s thrilling to finally share with fans the debut of Funkoverse, the first pop culture-infused board game from Funko Games,” said Brian Mariotti, CEO of Funko. “The games division underscores our commitment in creating the most innovative and relevant products out on the marketplace. Our employees take great pride in continually discovering new ways to reach the fan in everyone.”
The first wave of Funkoverse includes six collectible strategy board games based on some of your favorite pop culture staples: Harry Potter, Rick & Morty, DC Comics and The Golden Girls. These games incorporate Pop! into the game with new 3-inch figurines. The game features strategic gameplay and a fun, new experience for both beginners and seasoned board-gamers. Funkoverse will hit store shelves at most major retailers starting this October.
As for the mobile game, Funko has teamed up with Universal Games and Digital Platforms to create a new match-3 puzzle game with Funko Pop! Blitz. This mobile game will feature characters from many popular franchises, including Back to the Future, Jurassic World, How to Train Your Dragon, Universal Monsters and more.
Funko Pop! Blitz is coming soon to iOS and Android devices, and will be available to download for free and feature in-app purchases. For a limited time at the game’s launch, players will receive an in-game Marty McFly Funko Pop!, along with in-game gems and coins.
