WizKids has announced its giant-mech-battle betting game Atlantic Robot League, which will launch this September.

In Atlantic Robot League, players bet on and then manipulate battles between gigantic fighting robots that will do battle across arenas covering multiple city blocks.  First, the players secretly place bets on which robot team they think will accomplish various feats in the upcoming battle, including which team will have the most survivors, which will knock out the most robots, or even which specific robots will survive. 

After the bets are placed, teams of three robots each duke it out in the arena.  During the battle, the players can influence the results by controlling the actions of the robots or by playing “Scheme” cards.  The robots keep fighting until only five remain, at which point the bets are revealed and points awarded.

After three rounds of betting and fighting, the player who has the most points is the winner.

Atlantic Robot League was designed by Camden Clutter and features artwork by Gabo.  The game includes 16 tiles, 14 cards, 1 arena board, 5 dry erase markers, and 41 tokens.  It is intended for 2 to 5 players, ages 12 and up, and plays in around 20 minutes.  MSRP is $34.99.
