Double Combo Games unveils a new board game project: The Secrets of Zorro

The masked avenger returns in an elegant and thrilling co-op board game!

(PRUnderground) March 17th, 2024

Double Combo Games, the creative team behind the acclaimed game Mage Noir, is proud to announce its next major project: a board game based on the timeless icon, Zorro.

Mage Noir, known for its exceptional visual quality and stunning illustrations created by ten artists, expanded to 52 countries through two successful Kickstarter campaigns. With this success, Mage Noir has grown with nine expansions, new game modes, and continues to attract new players every day.

Today, Double Combo Games partners with ZORRO Productions, based in California, USA, to bring back Zorro, the beloved masked avenger of all generations, in a cooperative board game. Designed to bring families together and captivate seasoned players, the game promises an immersive experience. Jeffrey Jeanson, who made significant contributions to the illustrations and visual aspects of Mage Noir, will oversee the artistic direction and illustration of this new project, ensuring the same level of care and elegance.

The game ‘The Secrets of Zorro’ comes at a time of renewal for Zorro, with two new television series planned for 2024 – a first series aptly titled ‘Zorro’ on Prime Video from January 2024, starring Miguel Bernardeau (from the ‘Elite’ series) in the titular role, and a second series later in the year, with Jean Dujardin, winner of Best Actor Academy Award, as Zorro.

The game will be available initially in English and French, with additional languages unlocked as stretch goals in the Kickstarter campaign. This crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, scheduled for May 2024, will give players the opportunity to join in finalizing the game, helping this young publisher expand its international reach.

Synopsis and Game Features

In ‘The Secrets of Zorro,’ players take on the roles of heirs to the legendary vigilante, working together to overthrow Governor Prizerio and thwart his tyrannical plans. The game blends strategy, hand management, secret information, and an immersive story. During the day, just like Don Diego, players will pose as compliant nobles, gathering information on the governor’s plans in various locations in the city. At night, masked, they will ambush the governor’s soldiers to return to the people what has been stolen from them. Players must be cunning and perfect their combat techniques to achieve victory.
