Can I Buy Disney Lorcana In My Country? What Language Will Lorcana Cards Be In?

Lorcana Release Countries Languages

Lorcana was released worldwide on August 18th, 2023. So far we know at least nine countries will get access to cards – with more countries and languages to come later.

As so many people are looking to start collecting and playing, we’ve rounded up as many of the facts as we can about the release. If your country and language aren’t available straight away don’t be put off.

Lorcana and Ravensburger have actively said they are looking to expand distribution. You can definitely expect more languages and countries to be included in the coming years after release.

What Languages Will Lorcana Use?

Lorcana was released in three languages to start with: English, French, and German. The team hasn’t confirmed, but it is likely that they will release the game in other languages. Japanese, Chinese (likely simplified Chinese), and Spanish are the most obvious as they cover the largest world populations.

Will All Of The Release Products Be Available In All Countries?

Initially, it was announced that the Gift Set and Illumineer’s Trove would only be available for English-language cards and countries because of these tweets. However, later tweets confirmed that at least the Gift Set is not US-exclusive or English-language exclusive.

It’s still unconfirmed whether the Illumineer’s Trove is English-exclusive or not. We don’t know anything about the accessories availability in different regions. There will be card sleeves, deck boxes, playmats, and portfolios available to start with at the least.

Who Are The Distributors For Lorcana?

In the USA Lorcana’s distributors are Southern Hobby, Alliance, and Peachstate Hobby Distribution.

In Canada Lorcana’s distributors are Lion Rampant, Randolph, and Universal. In the Netherlands, are the only distributor. In Spain, the first official distributor is Dispersa Juguetes.

In some European countries, Ravensburger seems to be handling Lorcana distribution directly. However, they’ve recently partnered with Asmodee for the UK. That arrangement might be the same for other European countries as Asmodee are a very big European distro.

It looks like the latest date for local stores to pre-order is June. That’s a pretty good leeway time to make sure there is enough product available but also quite a long way in advance for stores to know how much they’ll want.

Will Lorcana Be Available In Spanish? + Spain/Latin America?

On release, it won’t be possible to get either the Spanish language cards or the English language cards in Spain or Latin America (Central or South America) through normal distributors. However, it’s very common for individual card shops to import the English version of the cards for or shortly after release.

Recently, it was announced that Dispersa Games – a Spanish games distribution company – will be an authorized distributor for Disney Lorcana. That means that Disney Lorcana will be available in Spain at some point – though it looks like just the English printing right now.

It hasn’t been confirmed when exactly that will happen. Because it was only announced in June 2023 it could be that Lorcana boxes and packs won’t be available immediately on release. They will also be responsible for events and tournament prizing/Lorcana Play distribution.

Ravensburger has already said that they are “working hard to expand our global distribution”. That means it’s looking good that there will be distribution and printing in other Spanish-speaking countries.

Currently, there are no plans for a Portuguese-language version of Lorcana to be made available. The English version is also not going to be available in Portugal or Brazil on release officially unless the cards are imported and re-sold.

Will Lorcana Be Available In Japan?

On release, there won’t be a Japanese-language version of Lorcana available. However, there have been some promising tweets about the Marketing team “vacationing” in Japan. We think there will be a big Japanese release at some point, and it could rival Pokémon in popularity – which is a big thing to say.

Will Disney Lorcana Be For Sale In China?

There are no official plans to release Lorcana in China yet. It might be something that happens down the line. Pokémon has only just been released in China on a large scale recently so there is precedent for big card games in the region.
