Announcing Primal Legends: The First Strategy CCG/Competitive Match-3 Hybrid
Coming Soon to iOS & Android
PARIS — June 2, 2016 — Kobojo is proud to announce the upcoming launch of its new strategy collectible card game, Primal Legends — arriving soon on the App Store and Google Play. Assemble your team of heroes and save the world of Theria from those who seek to destroy it in this exciting new twist on the Match-3 genre!
Theria was a peaceful place until the Stones of Power fell from the sky. Chaos spread across the world as the stones began to corrupt every animal they touched. Now it is up to the player to build an army of brave warriors to restore order to the world…
Blending classic Match-3 mechanics, deck building and turn-based strategy combat elements, Primal Legends has players battle their way across 150 levels and 8 game modes; discover more than 50 heroes; and fight online opponents through real-time PvP combat.
Players recruit heroes with unique abilities that can be unleashed on the battlefield with devastating results. However, not all heroes deal direct damage: Some heal or protect soldiers, while others increase their attack power or assassinate enemy heroes. As players win and unlock reward chests, they’ll be able to level-up their heroes, improve their abilities, and apply unique strategies and synergies. Cooperation with friends will be key, since it will allow players to complete their collection of champions and unlock their full potential.
Winning requires strategic thinking and tactical know-how: Players will have to find the right balance between matching minions against enemy forces and summoning heroes’ super powers.
“Primal Legends is the first truly competitive Match-3 game out there,” says Charlotte Lavergne, executive producer at Kobojo. “With tactical combat, Match-3 elements, and CCG-style deck building, we want to reinvent the genre for players who are anything but ‘casual.’ We can’t wait to see the awesome strategies people come up with — particularly in PvP!”
- Epic adventure: Persevere through the trials of Theria in over 150 levels.
- Incredible duels: Challenge players from around the world in real-time PvP modes.
- Deck building: Adapt your strategy and build the strongest army. Evolve your heroes to unleash their full potential!
- Innovative core gameplay: Easy to learn, but hard to master — using a blend of both classic Match-3 and collectible card game mechanics.
- Many heroes to discover: Meet the latest heroes and learn about their powers!

Primal Legends 101
Each Primal Legends battle begins with a straightforward concept: matching units on the board so that groups of three or more of the same color can attack the enemy by taking out their troops, chipping away at opponent Heroes or directly damaging your opponent! At the same time, matched units charge up powerful Hero characters that you can wield with devastating results. However, not all Heroes deal direct damage; some heal or protect soldiers, while others increase their attack power … or even assassinate enemy Heroes! It’s up to you to assemble the best possible team by discovering (and leveraging) the synergies between each Hero.
The careful application of basic troop attacks as well as the judicious use of Heroes is essential if you are to beat each of the game’s 200 levels. Objectives can be varied: dropping the enemy’s hit points to zero, aiming at specific targets in the enemy camp, and much more.
Cooperation with friends plays a big role in Primal Legends: Working with other players makes it easier to complete the collection of champions and thus unlock their full potential in-game. As battles are won (and reward chests are unlocked!), you can also level up your roster — developing advanced strategies that lead to more victories!
“Competitive PvP is the future of Match-3,” says Charlotte Lavergne, Executive Producer at Kobojo. “Getting there was certainly tricky — but with Primal Legends, we’re showing the world that it can be done. Our game features a high amount of strategic combat and hefty TCG-style deck building, which turns the whole Match-3 genre on its head! Whether casual, mid-core or hardcore, players of all stripes are sure to enjoy Primal Legends.”
