Last August, the Walt Disney Corporation announced its own TCG, Disney Lorcana. The game, which will be produced by Disney in association with tabletop publisher Ravensburger, is a family-friendly experience featuring classic character art from the studio’s rich cinematic history. Now, keen players and fans have gotten their first look at the House of Mouse’s take on a card game, including a look at its art style and its first wave of content.
Disney Lorcana Card Reveal
Those who attended the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany saw another card arriving lorcana disney. Aurora – Guardian of Dreams features the princess from Sleeping Beauty with illustrations by Nicholas Kole. Overall, the artwork and text appear to be consistent with the cards revealed at Disney’s D23 Expo last September. But Aurora has a unique ability. Protective Embrace, which allows you to apply Ward to other characters you control. This means that the opponent cannot select them except to challenge them. Depending on the context, there’s a chance that the term “challenge” is a less confrontational version of fighting or attacking an enemy card. This would be parsed as a character is not “destroyed” or “sent to a graveyard”, but rather banished according to the text of other cards.
An official press release revealed more details about lorcana disney. Press images of the first wave of in-game content have been released, titled The first chapter. The images show artwork from the booster packs, starter decks, and gift sets of the game.
