Following the recent leak and then publication of the Lorcana rules, a press release direct from Lorcana has given us a bunch of new information. From that, we’ve found new card images as well as five hidden card names and artists!
The Ravensburger Press site there has a news release about the game with a lot of new images of the accessories. It also has some press images of the three Starter Decks and their contents – plus long-awaited cards!
Update: We originally posted German-language images but the English-language ones just dropped.
Scroll down to find five new hidden cards we’ve found from product details, as well as some confirmation on the illustrators of previously shown cards.
Moana, Aladdin + Simba Holofoils
This deck contains the same Mickey Mouse Sorcerer card that was revealed in the rules sheet, but also a new Moana Of Motunui. We’d seen the art about for a while but now we have closer shots of the card – though in German.
The card is a Rare and it looks like there is foiling – as the Starter Deck packaging suggests. She’s a 5 cost (with inkwell) Amber card with Storyborn, Hero, and Princess classifications. She has three lore, one strength, and a whopping six willpower.
Her ability is: “WE CAN FIX IT Whenever this character quests, you may ready your other Princess characters. They can’t quest for the rest of this turn.”
That’s a seriously powerful ability that can be used to get other Princess characters to attack twice, or quest and attack once each per turn – or just protect characters.
The flavor text is the film quote: “I am Moana of Motunui. You will board my boat, sail across the sea, and restore the heart of Te Fiti.“
Aladdin’s starter deck card is here, as well as the previously shown Cruella.
This is Aladdin Heroic Outlaw. He’s a Ruby Floodborn Hero in Super Rare and more foil decoration. Yet another great piece of art from Nicholas Kole. The card is a huge 7 cost with inkwell and five strength. The image could be cut off but it looks like it might not have willpower?
The ability reads as “Shift 5 (You may pay 5 to play this on top of one of your characters named Aladdin.)
DARING EXPLOIT: During your turn, whenever this character banishes another character in a challenge, you gain 2 Lore and each opponent loses 2 lore.”
Yet another card that’s been teased for ages – Simba Returned King. Sure to be popular with the 90s kids. Simba is a Rare Steel card in a holofoil decoration. He is a Storyborn Hero King and yet again Nicholas Kole is killing it with the art.
He is a seven cost, four toughness card though we can’t see the willpower or lore. His ability is “Challenger +4 (While challenging, this character gets +4 .)
POUNCE: During your turn, this character gains Evasive. (They can challenge characters with Evasive.)“
He’s the second Challenger keyword card we’ve seen after fellow Steel character Captain Hook Forceful Duelist. He’s one of five cards now that have or can get access to Evasive.
With the press release came a bunch of shots of the new deck boxes, play mats and sleeves. On the back of these boxes, the card names and artist is revealed! Take a look at the cards we’ve found: –
- Mickey Mouse True Friend – Dave Beauchene – Card sleeves
- Elsa Spirit Of Winter – Matthew Robert Davies – Card sleeves
- The Queen Wicked and Vain – Matthew Robert Davies – Card portfolio
- Stitch Carefree Surfer – Marcel Berg – Card portfolio
- Maleficent Biding Her Time – Grace Tan – Playmat
There’s also a German rules sheet – a translation of the one we saw yesterday – in a very high resolution… From that, we can now make out that the Donald Duck Boisterous Fowl artist is Kenneth Anderson, and the Captain Hook Captain of the Jolly Roger is (Christian) Adrianne Gumaya.
