Dungeons & Dragons strategy game to add characters from the classic 1980s D&D cartoon

A classic Dungeons & Dragons character from the 1980s cartoon comes to Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms, the officially licensed D&D strategy game. Developer Codename Entertainment is preparing to release the game’s 100th champion, and to celebrate, they’re bringing the Dungeon Master from the 1983 D&D cartoon to the game.

Idle Champions is a free D&D strategy game available for Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, PC, iOS and Android. The game brings together characters from different novels, campaigns and shows in one big D&D crossover. The developers are working with D&D content creators to bring popular characters to the game, including contributions from content creators such as Mark Meer, Anna Prosser, B. Dave Walters, and others.

Now the newest champion to join the party is Dungeon Master from the classic 1983 D&D cartoon. Players can unlock him in the run event, which starts on April 27th and ends on May 9th. In addition to the Dungeon Master Champion, the content drop also includes Uni the unicorn from the cartoon. The developers say it’s been a blast bringing these classic characters into the game.

“This was our 100th champion, and we had a lot of classic D&D characters to choose from,” said Chris Dupuis, Idle Champions Live Services Manager. “However, once we finally landed on Dungeon Master, everything clicked — I knew we had something special about brewing.”

Dungeon Masters gameplay characteristics are inspired by its role in the cartoon. The developers say he has a habit of disappearing, similar to the classic show. When he’s gone, Uni takes his place on the battlefield.

And two other characters from the cartoon will also appear in Idle Champions. Two classic villains, Venger and Tiamat, will show up to try and hinder your progress. Venger is the main villain in the TV show, and Tiamat is a five-headed dragon who also competes against the group of friends in the cartoon.

The television series Dungeons & Dragons originally aired on CBS from 1983 to 1985. The show followed a group of friends transported into the world of Dungeons & Dragons who had to find their way home with the help of the Dungeon Master. It’s still considered a classic today, and ranked #64 on IGN’s list of the 100 Greatest Animated Series of All Time.

In addition to the new characters that will be released on April 27th, this date also marks the release of the first localization round of Idle Champions, with in-game support for French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Latin American Spanish and Simplified Chinese.
