Netmarble Corp. released a new update to Magic: ManaStrike, Netmarble’s first-ever game for the Wizards of the Coast franchise Magic: The Gathering. Today’s update introduces Ixalan Season II, including new Magic Pass Rewards and two new unit cards.
Two new colorless unit cards have been made available for players to use in the game – Livewire Lash and Gadget Swarm. Livewire Lash enables melee attacks against enemy ground and air units, dealing additional damage based on an enemy’s max HP. Gadget Swarm summons three Hedron Scouts and three Clockwork Beetles. Hedron Scouts engage in melee attacks on enemy ground units and Clockwork Beetles delivers ranged attacks on enemy air and ground units.
New Magic Pass Rewards include a Planeswalker selector, Skin selector, Level Boost Voucher, Emojis and Player icons. Similar to last season, the Planeswalker Selector, which allows a player to choose one of three Planeswalkers released during the soft launch, will be available as a Magic Pass reward.
Magic: ManaStrike explores the depth of Magic: The Gathering’s vast multiverse in a whole new genre with a fast-paced PVP strategy game. 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.
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 color’s traits, and create unique strategies that lead the way to victory.
Magic: ManaStrike is available to download on the App Store and Google Play and is globally launched, and supports 13 languages including English, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Indonesian, Thai, Russian and Portuguese.
