IDW Games have announced that they will be working with VIZ Media to produce a board game based on Death Note, the popular manga and anime series. The game will be titled Death Note: Confrontation.

The 2-player card game will be a test of wits as one player aims to outsmart the other. One player will take on the role of Light, a gifted student, who wields the Death Note, which will bring death to anyone whose name is written in it.

However, as Light tries to rid the world of evil using his new-found power, he will be closely pursued by L, the world's greatest detective. Each player will use their specific notebook to track the other's movements.

As L, players must track the criminal targets, to systematically locate the supernatural murderer known only as 'Kira'. As Light, players take on the role of Kira, eliminating targets to gain victory points.

Death Note: Confrontation is being designed by husband and wife duo, Jordan and Mandy Goddard, who have previously worked together on games like self-published Collapse and Renegade Games Studio's Lotus.

Jerry Bennington, VP of New Product Development commented:

Being able to bring the story of Death Note to the tabletop is great and we are looking forward to people playing this spine-tingling game. Jordan and Mandy have done a great job capturing the feel of this story and it will be fun to see people be able to play it out and see who wins.Jerry Bennington

Death Note: Confrontation is due to hit game stores in June 2018 for $29.99.
