Warbands: Bushido is trying to bring the feel of moving miniatures around a board to your mobile devices, and it seems to be well on its way to do so. The game has just gone live on Steam Early Access, and while the developers say there’s still a lot of work to be done before the game comes out on iOS, I’m glad to see it’s on the right path. As you can see in the Upcoming Games forum thread for the game, Warbands: Bushido is a turn-based miniatures board game with cards, and it looks really nice. The isometric view makes it feel like playing the real thing and the miniatures – of which there are over 100 – look fancy.
The game has a single-player story-driven campaign along the lines of games like Final Fantasy Tactics. It will come with a number of campaigns, each with its own characters and events. In addition to that, Warbands will have synchronous multiplayer for those who like to butt heads with others. The game looks pretty good in the trailer, and I’m looking forward to getting this one on my mobile devices.
