LOS ANGELES, February 1, 2005 - Hero Factory has entered into a license with Harmony Gold USA for a Robotech collectible card game.
Robotech exploded onto syndicated television in 1985 and introduced an entire generation of viewers to anime. Robotech has maintained a loyal fan base over the last 20 years through TV syndication, releases of toys, comic books, novels, role playing games, home videos and next-generation console games. In 2001, Harmony Gold launched their new website www.robotech.com which soon had the largest anime community on the internet with hundreds of millions of hits to date.
Hero Factory plans on producing collectible card game sets based on the classic Robotech television series and brand new art being produced by Harmony Gold. The plans are to release multiple starter decks and booster packs over the next few years.
James Takenaka, President of Hero Factory, “After releasing the Robotech trading cards we began developing a prototype of our collectible card game concept and moved toward discussions with Harmony Gold for the collectible card game license.”
Erick Reyes, Vice President of Hero Factory, "Our Company is very excited about working with Harmony Gold to create a unique gaming experience for the fans of Robotech.”
