Disney Lorcana is a trading card game, or TCG for short, that features Disney characters that live in an all-new world with unique and magical gameplay.
Each trading card shows a Disney character in both original and reimagined art styles.
The new game is set in the rich and fantastical world of Lorcana, a joining of the words “lore” and “arcana”.
Players will take on the role of sorcerers, known as Illumineers, who can access Lorcana’s “The Great Illuminary”, a treasury of all Disney songs and stories ever made. They’ll be able to summon glimmers of characters to adventure with and to do battle on the table.
Lorcana has been developed for Disney by Ravensburger, the game company known for its popular board games such as Labyrinth, Dingbats, El Dorado and Escape. This is their first foray into collectible card games.
First Lorcana Cards Revealed
The first cards for Disney Lorcana were unveiled at Disney D23 earlier in September.
These seven cards feature Elsa, Maleficent (in dragon form), Captain Hook, Cruella De Vil, Stitch and Robin Hood as well as the original Disney character himself, Mickey Mouse. On his card, he wears the Brave Little Tailor costume reminiscent of the classic animated short film that he debuted in in 1938.
Each of the seven debut cards include the name of the character, its cost to bring into play, and its statistics for offense and defense.
Each card also includes a mechanic or special power, as well as a short message in italics drawn from Disney lore.
