  • Good day to all you UniVersus fans out there!

    My name is Tim Frie and I’m the lead game designer here at Jasco Games. The design team always has a lot of fun working on new cards, but this set in particular has been a blast. Focusing on the bad guys is not a thing we get to do often! We’re nearly ready to begin previewing the next expansion of the My Hero Academia CCG, but before we do, I wanted to give everyone some tidbits of what to expect over the coming weeks. 

    Things you can expect to see in League of Villains:

    • Villains, of course!
    • A cycle of powerful actions for blocking!
    • 2 throwback reprints.
    • 4 never-before-playable characters to build your deck around.
    • An attack that searches your deck.
    • Multiple Rare attacks with a Check of 1.
    • The return of the “3 damage matters” archetype.
    • The first 2-Difficulty attack printed for My Hero Academia.
    • Revisiting counters as part of a character card.
    • A brand new Keyword Ability!
