New Disney Lorcana card game is coming for Pokemon and Magic: The Gathering

Disney Lorcana is a new trading card game that teams up different Disney characters in a Magic: The Gathering-style battle, and it’s set to launch toward the end of 2023.

Along with being “rooted in the magic of Disney characters and storytelling”, the press release notes that this game is accessible for newcomers while still providing “thoughtful” gameplay where veterans of the best card games are concerned. Disney Lorcana will also feature “more original Disney artwork than any other single product ever created” according to the vice president of Disney product design.

Although nothing has been revealed about Lorcana’s mechanics just yet, the setup sounds more than a little reminiscent of MTG – especially with the inclusion of several elemental colors in the game’s logo. Taking place in a world called ‘the Great Illuminary’ where every Disney song and story is stored, players become sorcerers known as Illumineers that can

As reported by Nintendo Everythinga Nintendo Switch version of the game has been listed on the website with a November 8 release date. Listings for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox One versions can also be found, implying that Quest for Balance will be a console game released across most platforms.

PS Plus Premium, Deluxe Officially Adds No New Games in August

PS Plus Premium PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Updates: We wrote in our original article on PS Plus Premium (and PS Plus Deluxe) that it’s possible Sony may have some surprises in store for its highest membership tier, but the catalog of All PS Plus Games for PS Plus Extra has refreshed today – and there are no additional games for those podding out for PS Plus Premium. That means there are zero extra PS3, PSP, PS2, or PS1 games.

As we mentioned below, Sony may see the value in PS Plus Premium as cloud streaming, but it’s clear from the comments and our own observations that many members are subscribed for the classic games. For the refreshed service to not offer any additional perks in only its second month is extremely poor. No one would accept this if PS Plus Essential effectively took a month off, which is what has happened here.
