The Fighting Fantasy series of branching narrative gamebooks is soon to hit its 35th anniversary, and in celebration, Nomad Games (Smash Up and Talisman) has announced that a new game from the series title Fighting Fantasy Legends will be coming to mobile devices and Steam this year.
Nomad Games has revealed that a partnership has been struck with the series’ authors Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone to bring Fighting Fantasy to a card-based RPG, which will feature books such as City of Thieves, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, and Citadel of Chaos.
