Disney Lorcana: The Second Chapter Release Dates

What Characters Will Be in Disney Lorcan?
The Disney catalog features a metric boatload of characters to collect. Captain Hook, Elsa, and Mickey Mouse will feature as the very first characters. Within The First Chapter, there are over 200 cards. Characters in The First Chapter range from villains and heroes to infamous side characters at all rarities.
The card game will take place in a location known as The Great Illuminary, according to brand manager Ryan Miller. This is a treasury home to all of Disney’s greatest songs, stories, and characters. Players will take on the role of an Illumineer, “this powerful sorcerer that has the ability to bring these characters to life off the page,” ultimately bringing a “band of their favorite Disney characters” together for an adventure.
All characters can show up in one of six Disney Lorcana colors: Amber, Amethyst, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, and Steel. In conjunction with the six colors are a variety of card types. And each character supports the color themes through spells and abilities.
What is the Gameplay Like in Disney Lorcana?
For the soft launch of Disney Lorcana on Aug. 18 at local game stores, players can learn all about the TCG through three preconstructed starter decks. The win condition for Disney Lorcana is built around collecting Lore counters.
Players will use Character cards to collect Lore or to Challenge an opposing Exerted Character. There are also Action and Item cards to support a variety of gameplay strategies. And cards are played by adding an Inkable card to the Inkwell. The first player to reach 20 Lore wins the game.

The collection of cards will have a “modern storybook” art style, according to Polygon. Creative director Shane Hartley described it as being inspired by “storybook openings” of Disney’s classic films, including visible line work and “vibrant” color washes. This will give it a hand-drawn fairytale look but elevated with advanced digital techniques.
