|Anima: Tactics | Published 20 April 2011|
For years, players have enjoyed the fast paced skirmishes and epic story lines of the Anima Tactics miniatures game, with its intuitive and dynamic mechanics for complete control over its character’s amazing abilities. With a system that allows for diverse parties of unique and powerful heroes, Anima Tactics brings players together to fight a secret war for the fate of a rich fantasy world.
Now, Fantasy Flight Games and Cipher Studios are pleased to announce an important change to Anima Tactics. Effective August 1st, 2011, Cipher Studios will handle all distribution of this popular miniatures game. Please note this change does not affect the Anima: Beyond Fantasy roleplaying game or the Anima card games, all of which will still be published by Fantasy Flight Games.
Why the change?
Since its first release, Fantasy Flight Games has been responsible for the distribution of Anima Tactics while Cipher Studios was responsible for its production and marketing. As both companies have grown tremendously in the intervening years, it made sense to transition distribution away from Fantasy Flight and to make Cipher Studios solely responsible for the Anima Tactics line.
This means that previously announced Anima Tactics releases will be distributed and sold by Fantasy Flight Games, but all future announcements and releases will come directly from Cipher Studios.
We at Fantasy Flight Games are among Cipher Studios’ biggest fans, and would like to thank our friends for allowing us to help make Anima Tactics a worldwide success. As we move forward with the Anima: Beyond Fantasy roleplaying game and our engaging selection of Anima card games, we eagerly look forward to Cipher’s ongoing contributions to the world of miniatures gaming, as well as to their rich fantasy world of Gaïa.
Anima: Tactics is a tactical miniatures game of skirmishes based on the world of Anima: Beyond Fantasy. Any number of players each build and control their own force of units, and engage each other in fierce combat.
@sepayne I am aware of this. However this is not an excuse when it comes to maintaining the Anima Tactics website they have. I have an account at cipherstudios. Darthvegeta800 there too.
Darth, FFG distributes the Anima items it receives from Cipher. They don't make or design them.
This is a good thing. Less they have to worry about so they can focus on their own stuff more.
Anima Tactics info and support by FFG has always been a bit dubious. New models available not announced, models depicted in the wrong folder. And I'm sceptic at how well they plan to support the rpg etc. Which is a shame as both the cardgame and RPG have a lot of potential if only it got a bit more support.
