After being first introduced at the D23 Expo in September, Disney Lorcana, the brand-new trading card game featuring faces from throughout Disney history, is set to launch The First Chapter this August.
Per IGN, Disney Lorcana The First Chapter will be released to local game stores August 18, with a full retail launch following on September 1. The inaugural set will feature over 200 unique cards, which will be available in boosters, starter decks, a gift set featuring Hades and Mulan, and a special package called the Illumineer’s Trove. Gen Con 2023 attendees will be the first to be able to purchase Lorcana products during the event August 3-6.
Booster packs will contain 12 randomized cards each, including one foil card and two cards of either rare, super rare, or legendary rarity. The special Illumineer’s Trove will contain eight booster packs, two themed deck boxes, a guide on how to play the game, and a special box for storage.
Starter decks will contain a specific set of 60 cards each featuring two of the six “inks”–playable colors a la Magic: The Gathering’s mana–and an extra booster pack. One deck will pair the Amber and Amethyst inks, another will be Emerald and Ruby, and the third will be Steel and Sapphire.
Disney Lorcana is a brand-new tabletop trading card game where players become Illumineers and use special inks to summon notable Disney characters including Maleficent, Cinderella, and more. A special preview set released during the D23 Expo included Robin Hood, Elsa, Stitch, and a premium Mickey Mouse card.
