Milwaukie, Ore. (June 9, 2020)—Mantic Games is pleased to announce it is working with Dark Horse Comics and visionary comic creator Mike Mignola to help raise money for charity with the release of Giant Robot Hellboy–a new playable character for Hellboy: The Board Game. What’s more, players of Hellboy: The Board Game will soon be able to create their own missions with the release of the B.P.R.D. Archives expansion.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, Mike Mignola has been entertaining fans with new illustrations nearly each day. These range from characters from the Mignolaverse to icons in popular culture. However, one of the most eye-catching was Giant Robot Hellboy–a massive mechanical version of Hellboy.
”When we saw that illustration, we just knew we had to make a model of it,” explains Ronnie Renton, CEO of Mantic Games. “Plus, we really wanted to do something to compliment the fantastic work Mike Mignola has done to raise money for World Central Kitchen during this difficult time.”
Each limited-edition Giant Robot Hellboy will be handmade in resin by the team at Mantic Games. It will be a new playable character that can be used to play Hellboy: The Board Game in solo mode. After all, a huge robot isn’t likely to need a great deal of help dispatching the forces of evil!
For each Giant Robot Hellboy sold, 10% of the proceeds will be donated to World Central Kitchen–the same charity Mike Mignola has been raising money for with his charity auctions during the COVID-19 outbreak. World Central Kitchen has served more than 10 million meals to students, families in need, seniors, and frontline healthcare heroes in North America and Spain during the pandemic.
The limited-edition Giant Robot Hellboy is available to pre-order now from www.manticgames.com. The miniature will be available to order throughout June and is expected to start shipping in late July, depending upon demand.
But that’s not the only Hellboy: The Board Game news. Later this month Mantic Games will be releasing the B.P.R.D. Archives expansion. This allows players to create their own missions for Hellboy: The Board Game by selecting their own Case File cards, adding new minions, and choosing what terrifying boss the team will face in the dramatic final confrontation. The B.P.R.D. Archives, along with Baba Yaga and Hecate boss expansions, will be launching in stores this June.
Hellboy: The Board Game is a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic B.R.P.D. members––Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and Johann Kraus––before exploring gothic locations, uncovering ancient artefacts, and battling one of Hellboy’s most notorious foes, Rasputin! After launching in April 2019, the game is now available in multiple languages (French, Italian, Brazilian, and Russian) and is on its third re-print after selling out worldwide.
