What They’re Saying:
- Florian Baldenhofer, International Category Manager for family and strategy games at Ravensburger: “Fans have been asking for a Star Wars-themed Villainous game for years. Our team spent more than a year diving into the characters and their stories in order to respectfully translate them into gameplay and we’re thrilled with the outcome.”
- Mike Mulvihill, Game Developer and Villainous Lead at Ravensburger: “Star Wars is one of my favorite properties and has been for decades. We’re particularly excited to bring the iconic Star Wars ships into the game. These ‘Vehicle’ cards introduce new actions to each Villain’s sector and can engage with each other.”
- Jake Breish, Art Director for the Villainous line: “Star Wars has such a unique, weathered design that is inherent to the property. Props in the film often have a distressed, battle-worn aesthetic. We wanted this Star Wars-themed Villainous game to capture that same feeling with these deliberate imperfections, which also ensures each mover is completely unique.”
