Japanime Games is celebrating the release of Heart of Crown at Gen Con in Indianapolis, IN during their company Princess Party at The Rock Bottom Brewery August 5th.
Heart of Crown has a lot to offer fans of deck building games or Japenese Pop-culture. The artwork is unique and lively, and leaves room for surreal locations and people without looking too "toony". The game itself, and it's mechanisms, offer unique twists that distinguish it from it's closest comparisons in the same genre - from both Dominion and Tanto Cuore. It's achiles heel has always been it's incredibly limited audience due to lack of localization, but hopefully it's fans, both old and forthcoming, will benefit from it's English release and proper Gen Con exposure.
