Disney Lorcana to be “game-changer for the trading card game market”, says Ravensburger
In 2023, Ravensburger will publish Disney Lorcana, Disney’s first collectible trading card game.
The game will feature Disney characters in both original and reimagined art styles, and will boast “more original Disney artwork than any other single product ever created.”
“Disney Lorcana is the result of the powerful alchemy of Disney magic, Ravensburger game excellence, and several years of dedicated work and investment,” said Filip Francke, Ravensburger North America CEO and Global Head of Games.
“This potent combination has poised Disney Lorcana to be a game-changer in the billion-dollar-plus trading card game market.”
John Balen, Vice President of Product Design at Disney, added: “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.”
Set in the fantastical world of Lorcana, the game sees players take on the mantle of a powerful sorcerer and band together Disney characters from Lorcana’s The Great Illuminary, a treasury of all Disney songs and stories ever made.
“The Disney Lorcana team is an incredible and passionate group with over a century of combined experience creating trading card games,” said Ryan Miller, Disney Lorcana Co-Designer and Brand Manager at Ravensburger.
“Great care has gone into delivering an unforgettable world and gameplay experience that will be equally fun for Disney superfans, trading card game beginners, and the most enthusiastic and advanced players.”
Disney Lorcana will be released globally in autumn 2023 and will be supported by four new card set releases each year.
