Just last week we posted the newest trailer and release date for Card Monsters, a card battler from developer Mu77 that’s been in the works for quite some time and is hoping to revolutionize the genre on mobile by paring down battles to 3 minutes or less. Well, as promised, Card Monsters: 3 Minute Duels (Free) indeed hit the App Store globally today. Besides its quick matches, Card Monsters also boasts a simplified deck building system where you’ll choose just 8 monster types and 8 item types out of a total pool of 450 cards. The monster cards can be leveled up giving them an upgraded status, new skills, and even new card art. In addition, all the monster cards can be augmented by equipping them with items, hopefully offering a nice variety of tactics and strategies for every player.
Alongside this global launch of Card Monsters is also new Guild features and after being in beta testing for such a long time I’m hoping the global release will provide a huge influx of new players. If you’re interested in card battlers but have always felt intimidated by the ones that are available, or felt like you don’t have the time to devote to them, Card Monsters might be the answer for you. It’s free to download and try so give it a shot, and check out the discussion thread in our forums for more information and impressions from other players.
