Ravensburger has unveiled a collaboration with Disney offering up on its first ever trading card game featuring characters from the Mouse House.
Due for release in the autumn of next year, Disney Lorcana will feature a whole host of beloved Disney characters both in their recognisable styles and in new reimagined art styles. The two companies believe that Disney fans will be wooed by seeing their characters in new environments and in new ways, whole trading card gamers will be drawn by the gameplay that Ravensburger is known for.
According to the announcement: “The game is set in the rich and fantastical world of Lorcana, a combination of the words Lore and Arcana. Players will take on the mantle of Illumineer, a powerful sorcerer, and band together Disney characters from Lorcana’s “The Great Illuminary,” a treasury of all Disney songs and stories ever made.”
Ravensburger North America CEO and global head of games Filip Francke said: “Lorcana is the result of the powerful alchemy of Disney magic, Ravensburger game excellence, and several years of dedicated work and investment,.. “This potent combination has poised Disney Lorcana to be a game-changer in the billion-dollar-plus trading card game market.”
VP of product design at Disney John Balen said: “The breadth and scope of Disney characters represented in this game will be unprecedented, and it will contain more original Disney artwork than any other single product ever created. “Our dedicated Disney product design team has enjoyed collaborating with Ravensburger and our Walt Disney Animation Studios partners to create a unique Disney experience for fans of all ages to take home.”
