“Black Jack”, “Dororo”, “Ambassador Magma”, “The Pheonix”, “Astro Boy”…
2018 celebrates the 90th birth anniversary of Osamu Tezuka, a literature genius who is attributed as the father of manga. For his works to touch new generations to come, a new game has been developed to introduce the characters of Tezuka. New creators have redesigned his characters in a modern era to reintroduce them to a younger generation, meanwhile still retaining Tezuka's original charm.

Game System

Astro Boy: Edge of Time is a card battle game where Osamu Tezuka's characters appear. Whoever reduces their opponents HP to 0 will be victorious. Each players has a deck built with 30 cards, which can be placed on the battle field using “Quantum”. There are two types of positions the cards can take.
“Enforcers” make up the attacking cards, leading the battle and are used to deplete your opponents HP.
“Guardians” build up the line of defense, acting as the support in the field. They are unable to attack, but as long as they are standing, the opponent won't be able to attack the player's HP directly.
It is necessary to create strategies by utilizing the various skills of each card, while also considering the fighting environment and your opponent's potential attacks.

Story Mode

Dark forces beyond understanding have consumed nearly all that exists. Ripped to shreds, left for dead, those that find
themselves still alive find hope in an unseen power that transports them safely to “The Sprawl”, a city that exists outside thenormal flow of space and time.
Humans and robots alike coexist in this new world, building themselves a new peaceful existence. Until Goa, the King of Darkness arrives…
Heroes, including Astro Boy and Ambassador Magma, gathered to fight against Goa with all their might. However, in the middle of the battle, a new type of hero appeared called “Summoner”, gifted with the ability to create hard light construct clones of those they meet and bring them into battle.
The price of battle was great, Ambassador Magma no longer moves, and is currently in a deep sleep at the core of the city. But worse yet, Astro Boy is now missing.
With the hearts of the people crushed after the invasion of Goa, a human falls into “The Sprawl”, triggering the world to move in a new direction. That human is you…

Tournament Mode

Astro Boy: Edge of Time is launching on Steam with a brand new mode added to the game: Tournament Mode. This will allow players to experience all the cards in the Astro Boy: Edge of Time universe during thrilling battles against other opponents online.

What is tournament mode?
Tournament mode is a game mode which allows players to play 5 online matches using a special tournament-made deck.
Participating in these online matches can earn players rewards based on how many times they attain victory.
The deck used for tournament mode is unrelated to the decks and cards already owned by the player, but rather a deck created upon entering tournament mode by selecting desired cards from an offered selection. This allows players to play with cards that they don't own yet. Once creating the deck, the player will go head to head with other players for 5 games.
Since tournament mode allows players to battle with a special deck, they can enjoy a variety of different strategies when
