The Disney Lorcana trading card game won’t be released until Fall 2023, but IGN gave a sneak peek of the game courtesy of Lolucana co-designer Ryan Miller, who left the cards to share exclusively. It’s “Maui — Demigod.”
Yes, the vaunted demigod voiced by Dwayne Johnson from the 2016 Disney animated musical Moana is coming to the world of Lolucana. The game includes both classic representations of Disney characters and brand new versions with never-before-seen twists on their looks and personalities, so you might remember Maui from this card, but He may have another card that looks and behaves in a very different way. This Maui the silver banner on his card is one of his six color coded cards of Lorcana his type Steel he ink marks him as his character each with a different strategy is focused on At first glance, Steel seems to have a lot of tough characters who are good at fighting.
I’ll save a more detailed explanation of the Lolucana game rules for a full preview coming soon, but suffice it to say that Maui’s card has great stats to match his incredible power. The goal of the game is to summon all sorts of Disney heroes and villains using ‘ink’ as a resource and compete to see who can accumulate his 20 ‘lore’ first. Your character can either go after enemy characters, use special abilities, or go on “quests” to collect lore.
It takes 8 ink to bring Maui into play, and you can only add 1 ink to the inkwell per turn, so basically he’s designed as a late-game bomb. He does a lot of damage with his 8 very high Health (Attack) and his 8 Willpower (Defense), can take many attacks, and has a very high 3 Lore (Card’s (represented by the diamond on the right) can be explored. ). Basically, every time he hits the board, he makes a big splash. That’s exactly what you’d expect from a bruiser sailing the open ocean.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned to IGN for more information on how Disney Lorcana works and what you think of the game at a later date. In the meantime, click through the slideshow gallery below to see other Lorcana cards revealed prior to release.
