The Summoners War: Legacy comic series is the latest expansion to the Summoners War IP, along with upcoming mobile game Summoners War: Chronicles and recently released Summoners War: Lost Centuria. The variety of expansions is a testament to the game’s success and longevity which proves to be a major tentpole for Com2uS’ gaming portfolio.
Summoners War: Legacy takes place 35 years before the universe-shattering conflict at the original mobile game’s center. The comic series features fan-favorite monsters, explores the fate of Durand’s parents, and expands on the mystical land of Alea and its colorful characters including Abuus, Rai, and Tomas. This riveting addition to Summoners War canon brings a rich lore to the franchise and draws new connections to the upcoming and existing Summoners War games that fans know and love.
Summoners War: Legacy #3 (Diamond Code APR210339) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, June 23.
