Cobra Kai: Card Fighter Takes A Stand Today On iOS And Android
Relive the hit Netflix series and battle online to be All Valley champion
Beverly Hills, California – 19 March 2021 – Cobra Kai: Card Fighter, the strategic turn-based fighting game based on the hit Netflix series Cobra Kai and published by Boss Team Games (Evil Dead: The Game) and developed by Gamaga (Banana Kong) in agreement with Diversion3 Entertainment and Sony Pictures Consumer Products, today strikes hard on to the App Store and Google Play.
It’s time to rekindle the rivalry between Johnny Lawrence’s Cobra Kai dojo and Daniel LaRusso’s Miyagi-Do 30 years after the events of The Karate Kid. Assemble a dojo of 16 characters from the series, includingfamiliar faces such as Miguel Diaz and Robby Keene, reliving storylines from the hit streaming series. This official mobile game was created in conjunction with the series’ creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg.
Players fight for glory by utilizing a simple combat system that becomes more strategic and fast-paced as rare Wild Cards and special combos are introduced to create advantages and secure an upper-hand in battle. Predict what your opponent will do based on their deck and fighting skills and show no mercy.
Prospective black belts can take the fight online against other players, where glory awaits in a competitive, synchronous multiplayer mode against other fighters from around the world. Just remember, there are no bad students, only bad teachers, so build powerful decks for each character’s specialties, and get a body bag for your opponents all over the globe!
Build up students from cream puffs to champions by leveling them up, expanding Cobra Kai or Miyagi-Do to recruit new fighters, and compete in the All Valley Karate Tournament. Future content expansion plans will add stories from the third season of Cobra Kai and beyond, alongside new competitive tournaments, with additional characters and cards available via a special “Sensei Pass” at launch.
“Working on a Cobra Kai game is a privilege, and we knew we had to sharpen our skills to make a game that told the story of the series but also was a fun, competitive fighting game in its own right,” said Tim Hesse, Executive Producer, Boss Team Games. “You’ll enjoy seeing the story of Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do, but you’re going to keep coming back to fight people online and build up your dojo.”
