“We think their unique take on collectibles gamification will be a hit with our current fan-base too and the product offers a game type environment that isn't simply simulation based."

VirtTrade also recently signed a three-year collaboration with Valiant Comics (Shadowman, Quantum and Woody) to develop an extensive digital collectibles app based on the company's characters and titles.
