Earlier this year, Steamforged Games revealed that it was now working on Sonic: The Card Game – a new competitive racing experience in card form. Details were sparse at the time, but now we have finally learnt more!
The developer has shared new information about the card game, announcing that it will release in September 2021 for $19.95/ £14.99/ €17.95. The card game will support 2 – 6 players, and each player must help their selected character (Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Blaze, or Shadow) obtain the most rings while skirting around dangerous obstacles!
Additionally, Steamforged Games shared a first-look at the game’s packaging (pictured above).
Here is the full blurb about the game below:
In Sonic: The Card Game, 2-6 players race through a new level every time they play. To win, they must collect rings, grab bonus cards and dodge enemies. The person with the most ring tokens and lives remaining wins.
Players select their favourite character — Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Blaze, or Shadow — and shuffle the deck. As the dealer places down cards, they build a randomly generated level for players to race through.
Each time a new card is placed, they must decide whether to keep racing to try and grab a bigger pot of rings, or to retire and collect their share of the rings and bonus cards on the table. If players keep racing, they risk running into enemies and losing lives, but the chance to win more rings and bonus cards could be tempting enough to keep racing on.
Sonic: The Card Game hits stores in September 2021 and will be priced at $19.95/ £14.99/ €17.95 RRP.
We’ll report back as we hear more in the future. Stay tuned!
