Ravensburger, renowned for its award-winning board games and puzzles, has announced the latest expansion to the Disney Lorcana Trading Card Game (TCG), titled Into the Inklands. Set to release in February 2024, this third installment of the Disney Lorcana TCG series introduces innovative gameplay elements and a host of beloved Disney characters.
Introducing Location Cards and New Strategies to Disney Lorcana
Into the Inklands marks a significant evolution in the Disney Lorcana TCG gameplay with the debut of location cards. These cards feature iconic settings from Disney stories, such as Motonui from Moana and the Jolly Roger from Peter Pan. Location cards offer players special abilities and interactions, opening up new strategic possibilities. Some locations provide bonuses when characters visit them, while others offer benefits just by being in play.
The expansion includes more than 200 new cards, enriching the Disney Lorcana TCG universe. Players, or “Illumineers,” will find their character glimmers visiting popular Disney story locations for the first time. The set also introduces mini-stories across cards, allowing players to discover deeper connections and narratives through quotes and descriptive text.
Welcoming More New and New Versions of Our Favorite Disney Characters
Into the Inklands brings a wave of nostalgia and excitement with the introduction of characters like Pluto, Perdita from 101 Dalmatians, Scrooge McDuck from DuckTales, Kit Cloudkicker from TaleSpin, and Jim Hawkins from Treasure Planet. These additions promise to delight fans and add a fresh dimension to the game.
The storyline of Into the Inklands follows the Illumineers as they navigate the realm of Lorcana. After unleashing a flood of mixed ink in Rise of the Floodborn, they are now tasked with retrieving scattered lore. However, an ominous shadow storm looms, adding urgency and mystery to their quest.
Availability and Pricing… Non-Scalper Prices
Into the Inklands will be available first at local game stores on February 23, 2024, and then at mass market retailers on March 8, 2024. The set will include two Starter Decks, booster packs, and a range of play accessories like Card Sleeves, Deck Boxes, Card Portfolios, and Playmats. All cards from this set are compatible with previous releases, The First Chapter and Rise of the Floodborn.
Launched in August 2023, the Disney Lorcana TCG is set in the enchanting realm of Lorcana. Players, as Illumineers, use magic ink to summon Disney characters, known as glimmers, in various forms.
