Magic the Gathering mobile game Mana Strike launches worldwide

If we told you that a Magic the Gathering mobile game just recently launched, we’re certain that you would immediately assume that we’re talking about yet another card game.

But not this time. Magic: Manastrike is a mobile game that takes the vast lore of Magic the Gathering and places it in the hands of a fast-paced, PVP strategy game. So while you won’t be playing with cards in the same way you did with Magic the Gathering, you’ll still be faced with some familiar faces.

As for the story of Magic: Manastrike, it’s fairly simple, even if you don’t know everything about Magic.

After losing a war with the Planeswalkers, Magic: The Gathering’s most powerful villain, Nicol Bolas, creates a parallel universe to find the Planeswalkers’ weaknesses. Players enter a contract with Nicol Bolas to provide combat data by controlling Planeswalkers and units in his universe.

Netmarble, the ones behind the creation of Manastrike, have worked closely with the Magic the Gathering team in order to ensure old Magic fans are able to relate and still desire playing a game that is both different, but fun from what they played in the past. Manastrike isn’t a completely new genre however, as there are strategic elements, but real-time may be off-putting to some fans.

As for the game itself, it is fast-paced and easy to learn. Fans can experience dynamic real-time battles with anyone from around the world in three-minute matches. During battle, players will be able to summon units, cast spells, and command powerful Planeswalkers with simple tap and drag gameplay and iconic Magic: The Gathering cards re-envisioned through high-quality 3D. By collecting new cards from Magic’s five unique Mana colors – White, Blue, Black, Red and Green, players will learn to understand each colour’s traits, and create unique strategies that lead the way to victory.

Will you be picking up Magic: Manastrike? It is now available worldwide on the App Store and Google Play – go check it out, now!
