Atomic Mass Games Takes Over Fantasy Flight’s Miniature Games Including X-Wing, Armada, and Legion

Star Wars

Asmodee is reshuffling some things within the company with a reorganization of their miniature game development. Atomic Mass Games will now handle the future development of all of Asmodee’s miniature games as a “specialty studio” focused on that space.

This means that numerous games are shifting over to the game developer who has found success with their Marvel: Crisis Protocol Game.

Star Wars: X-Wing, Star Wars: Armada, and Star Wars: Legion are all moving from Fantasy Flight to Atomic Mass.

Simone Elliott, who has shepherded Fantasy Flight’s relationship with Lucasfilm Licensing since 2015, will
lead Atomic Mass Games during this time of expansion as Head of Studio. Will Shick assumes primary creative oversight as Head of Product Development. Joining them will be key members of the teams involved in the creation and evolution of Fantasy Flight’s current Star Wars miniatures games, Star Wars
X-Wing, Star Wars Legion, and Star Wars Armada.

Asmodee and Artovision Partner for Art Collectibles

Asmodee

Artovision and Asmodee Entertainment have entered into a licensing partnership to bring several of Asmodee’s fan-favourite properties to life through Artovision’s range of multi-dimensional art collectibles. Properties featured in the deal will include the omnipresent modern classic boardgame CATAN along with Fantasy Flight Games Arkham Horror, Twilight Imperium, KeyForge, and Legend of the Five Rings brands, known for their extensive library of high-quality
illustrations.

The cooperation will see artwork from these beloved properties produced as shadowbox and desktop artwork by the team at Artovision, bringing some of the brands’ most iconic pieces of art to life with a three-dimensional depth never seen before. Artovision’s shadowbox artwork combines four layers of full-colour art, each printed on optical grade
cast acrylic, and assembled within a durable high-quality finished frame to create astonishing visual depth. Artovision’s desktop artwork, meanwhile, combines two highquality printed art layers in a freestanding optical grade acrylic block, perfect for brightening up desktops, bookshelves, TV cabinets or home entertainment system surrounds.

Klaus Teuber’s CATAN is a highly visual and engaging game, known for the compelling art style of its box covers, board and other game components.

Twilight Imperium is a genre-defining strategy game set against the backdrop of a sweeping, epic space opera with awe-inspiring, epic art to match. The cyber-noir setting of Android sees megacorporations battling for dominance in an AI-enhanced future and is, like Twilight Imperium, KeyForge and Legend of the Five Rings, a product of Asmodee’s renowned Fantasy Flight Games studio. KeyForge is the world’s first Unique Deck Game, known for its deep, immersive melting-pot universe where anything is possible, with stunning card art central to its appeal. The world of Rokugan, home to Legend of the Five Rings, offers an epic fantasy vista and provides the backdrop for a range of beloved tabletop games. The chosen properties stand out as some of the most beautifully illustrated brands to be found anywhere in world, traits which make them a perfect fit for Artovision’s innovate, ultra high-quality shadowbox and desktop artworks.

The first products of this collaboration are due to launch in fall 2020. CATAN, Android, Twilight Imperium, KeyForge, and Legend of the Five Rings will each be the subject of two fantastic shadowbox designs and two more desktop artwork pieces.
