dungeons and dragonsThe Dungeons & Dragons tabletop game will hit the digital platform as a mobile iOS game later this year. Playdek, a mobile video game publisher, and Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro and publisher of roleplaying games such as Dungeons & Dragons, recently entered a partnership which will allow Playdek to develop and publish various Wizards’ tabletop games for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

While the companies have yet to release the details of their new deal, Joel Goodman, CEO, Playdek did comment:  “We’ve always been big fans of Wizard’s games and it is an honor to work with their talented team to re-create this compelling entertainment in a mobile form. New and existing fans will soon be able to enjoy them anywhere and anytime.”

Playdek is known for bringing the tabletop gaming hobby into the digital space and is linking with Wizards of the Coast at a time when the lifestyle gamer’s global community is expressing a love for both digital and in-person play. Wizards of the Coast brings a range of gaming experiences under brand names such as Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, and Kaijudo to the tabletop gaming market.

While Wizards of the Coast has released iOS properties based on its Magic and Kaijudo titles, gamers have yet to see an official Dungeons & Dragons iOS property hit the App Store.
