Into the Badlands Blade Battle features never-before-seen, isometric tactical combat and fan-favorite characters from the hit AMC series, including Sunny, The Widow, M.K., Waldo and more.

“Together with AMC, we have built a mobile experience that captures the intensity and personality of the Into the Badlands world,” said Amit Khanduja, Chief Executive Officer, Reliance Entertainment-Digital. “Into The Badlands Blade Battle is packed with limitless hours of gameplay to entertain both fans of the series and mobile gamers. We have always strived to bring a diverse range of entertainment and big brands to mobile gamers as long-lasting experiences, and we are excited to introduce another flagship with Into the Badlands Blade Battle.”
“We wanted a game that captured the fast pace and dynamic artistry of the martial arts in Into the Badlands – beautiful action, for people who want a great fighting game on mobile. It’s easy to pick up and hard to put down,” said Mac McKean, EVP of Innovation and Product Development for AMC and SundanceTV.
Into the Badlands returns for its highly anticipated second season on Sunday, March 19 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Season 2 finds Sunny (Daniel Wu) and M.K. (Aramis Knight) separated and scattered to the wind, each imprisoned in unlikely places. While M.K. struggles to control his powers, Sunny is determined to fight his way back into the Badlands to find his family or die trying. On their journey, Clipper and Colt are assisted by mysterious, new allies whose motivations may be anything but pure. Meanwhile, The Widow (Emily Beecham) continues to consolidate power against the other Barons, while a dark and mysterious threat prepares to exact revenge on them all. Alliances are struck, friendships betrayed, and by season’s end, Sunny and M.K.’s lives will be forever altered with devastating consequences.
