It isn't canceled. There was an injunction between Interplay who owns the rights to Battle Chess and TopWare who tried to release Battle vs Chess the original title of Chess vs Mate. Interplay won the injunction not permitting Battle vs Chess to release in the United States. You can still download it from overseas sites. Just make sure it's in English if that is what you speak. Proceedings are suppose to start sometime 2012. It looks like they changed the name to Chess vs Mate to avoid not being able to to release the game at all in the US. My question is whats going to be better Chess Vs Mate (Battle Vs Chess) or Battle Chess you can goto Interplay's site to see Battle Chess. Both should be released sometime this year.
"You don't think this is going to be like real Wizard Chess do you?" "Yes Hermione, I think this is going to be EXACTLY like Wizard Chess."
People are so gullible. Just because amazon cancels a preorder doesnt mean the game itself is canceled. There is no official word yet from SouthPeak. People are like sheep....stupid, lol.

Battle Chess resurrected! Too bad it doesn't include the Chinese Chess version together with the International version.
Just chess with battle animations. Your pawns are not going to kill queens with some sort of attack you can pull off. It wouldn't be chess if you take someones knight with your pawn only to have the knight defeat you
This game has caught my attention but will wait for more until I make a purchase. Sometimes looks do not mean everything.
I do like chess not too good at it but its very fun i just wish they made it a $20 downloadable game, as theres not really too much u can do here. Still i might get it sometime soon
Battle Chess! I remember playing the very early versions of this back in the 90's. Was really cool at the time, hopefully they've added some new twists.
I hope they have different sets of pieces and not just the ones shown in the demo video. Not asking for them to go down the orks, elves, dwarves, etc pieces but something to add a bit of variety visually.
Awesome! I play a random game of Chess Titans 2 or 3 times a week so if I replace that with this game, it will probably spice things up. :D
Um its exactly the same as chest. This is just a remake of the old game Battle Chess.. The problem with that game was it had very bad AI. Hopefully they put more work in the AI for a good chess game and not just emphasis on the WOWIE graphics factor.
Im so gonna waste my money on this instead of assassins creed brotherhood or halo reach.... jokes ive never heard of this game ill just play chess on my laptops preinstalled games -_-
I'm unimpressed by video that fails to allow sufficient time for scrutiny before cutting away to the next sequence ... it implies there is something to hide.
