'Magic: The Gathering - Puzzle Quest' game coming to mobile
Are you a fan of the Magic: The Gathering trading card game? I still remember collecting those cards and battling it out with my friends during lunch. Those who were (or are) also part of the Magic club will love to hear today’s news. Wizards of the Coast has partnered with D3 Go! to release a new game. The moniker is a bit confusing, but here it goes. The new app will go by the name of “Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest”.
Well, those are a bunch of symbols, aren’t they? As you should have guessed, this will be part of the Puzzle Quest franchise, so it won’t be as complex as the actual Magic: The Gathering game. All you have to do is keep matching three identical symbols and get as many points as possible. Users can complete quests, daily events and even join tournaments. And though the game is not exactly the same as Magic: The Gathering, it does have some card elements, including the ability to collect creatures, spells and artifacts, which can later be used in battles.
“Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest is the ideal marriage of the deep lore and strategic elements of Wizards of the Coasts’ iconic series, along with the gripping match-three gameplay of one of the most popular puzzle game series in history. From the competitive tournaments to the intense in-game battles, Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest perfectly encapsulates the strongest elements of both franchises to create something compellingly new, yet perfectly intuitive to Magic fans and puzzle gamers alike.” -Peter Andrew, vice president of publishing at D3 Go!
‘Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest’ (seriously, what’s with the name?!) will be available for both iOS and Android. As it goes with most recent mobile games, this one will be free to download, but there will be in-app purchases for those who want to advance quicker.
We are not sure about the actual launch date, but it’s said the game will be showcased at PAX Prime 2015, which takes off this Friday. Are any of you looking to play this game? I haven’t touched anything related to Magic: The Gathering in a long time! I will definitely give it a shot.
