WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

UVS Games is the intersection of IP-driven fandom and social tabletop gaming. Who hasn't wondered which of their favorite characters would triumph if their universes ever collided? Our mission is to bring people together, help them share their fandom together, and answer the question: Who would win?

Our flagship property is the UniVersus Collectible Card Game (CCG), a character-driven, multi-IP fighting card game. It’s the only CCG that allows you to play as your favorite character from your most-loved franchises.

UniVersus, originally known as Universal Fighting System, was first released in 2006. It’s a
well-established, proven CCG - and one of the oldest continuously published collectible, tabletop games. Throughout its history, UniVersus has partnered with leading IPs from the worlds of fighting games, anime and more.

Across our 17+ year history, fans have fallen in love with the game’s rich mechanics, the various worlds we explore together and most of all the true friendships and bonds that are made along the way.

At UVS Games, we love what we do. We’re industry veterans, professional gamers, and most of all, fans. We can’t wait to meet you at your neighborhood local game store!
