Asmodee Digital Expands Their Upcoming Slate of Games with ‘Onitama’ and Reveals New Trailers For Essen Spiel

If you saw our post about Asmodee Digital’s big Gen Con Announcement in August, then you are probably already aware that Asmodee Digital has a massive number of digital board game releases planned for 2017 and 2018.

Today they’ve used Essen Spiel 2017 to update this list and reveal new details and trailers for highly-anticipated titles like Catan Stories, Catan VR and Scythe, as well as announce an awesome new addition…Onitama!

Listed as “upcoming releases” on the Gen Con info, Smash Up and Ticket to Ride: First Journey have now been released.

Notably absent from this list (compared to the Gen Con list) is Gloom, from Atlas Games, which seems to have been removed. Perhaps this project has been pushed out or it’ll be a surprise release like Harald: A Game of Influence was.

Needless to say, this is an impressive catalog of games that I will be thrilled to have on my digital bookshelf.

I am super-stoked about the addition of Onitama, as I love my two-player strategy games.

Below is all of the exciting the info that we were sent by Asmodee Digital:

To be released in 2017

Catan Stories (Catan GmbH / Catan Studio)

An all-new text adventure game based on the scenario expansion Legend of the Sea Robbers for the highly-acclaimed Catan board game.

Platforms: iOS and Android

Carcassonne (Hans im Glück)
Multi-awarded tile-matching game made digital, including solo, pass-and-play and online multiplayer modes. TheCodingMonkeys retains the iOS rights to this app, so no new version for iOS gamers.

Abalone (Asmodee Edition)

A beautiful, strategic marble game, awarded as a Mensa Select Winner, now being readied for multiplayer online play.

Mille Bornes (TF1 Games)
Famous French card game where players compete to drive 1000 km, dealing with road hazards along the way. An absolute classic, my daughter is excited about this one, since the previously released app (from another publisher) no longer supports online multiplayer.

Platforms: Steam, iOS and Android


Catan VR (Catan GmbH / Catan Studio)

True to the classic, but optimized for virtual reality, Catan VR allows tabletop fans and new players alike to experience the best-selling board game in a fresh, fully-immersive format. The first images available in 360°
