Magic The Gathering Announces New ‘ManaStrike’ Game (VIDEO)
Wizards of the Coast announced its first online gaming experience for Magic The Gathering! In collaboration with South Korean studio Netmarble Monster, the two are bringing fan-favorite cards to life with a mobile trading card game. Combining 3D animated attacks with classic TCG gameplay, ManaStrike is “easy to play but hard to master.” Check out a sneak peek below:
“Players begin with a detailed tutorial, which guides them through the game’s early stages,” according to a press release. “After choosing a pre-made deck of cards from one of Magic’s five iconic colors – White, Blue, Black, Red or Green – players will fight against live opponents, where quick tactics and fast play reign supreme on the battlefield. As they progress, players will collect new cards and enhance their units (inspired by Magic: The Gathering’s deep library of creatures) to suit their individual playstyles and strategies.”
With a reputable name within the realm of mobile gaming as Netmarble, Wizards of the Coast vice president of business development, Eugene Evans, is eager to launch the game to fans around the world.
We’re thrilled to partner with Netmarble to bring Magic: ManaStrike to mobile gaming fans around the world. We were drawn by Netmarble’s reputation as a global leader in mobile games and its known passion for putting a unique twist on the genre. As a new Magic-inspired experience, Magic: ManaStrike is an action-packed way to discover the Magic multiverse, and we can’t wait to welcome new players to the community.”
Magic the Gathering: ManaStrike makes its official debut at the G-Star tradeshow in Busan, South Korea from November 14th to the 17th. An official release date has not been disclosed yet.
