Steamforged Games has revealed more details on its upcoming, officially licensed tabletop title, Sonic: The Card Game, its new fast-paced, pick up and play game developed in partnership with SEGA.
Aimed at Sonic fans aged six years old and upwards, the new game features colourful Sonic graphics and a racing theme. The game was subject to a ‘stealth announcement‘ earlier this year, when Steamforged listed Sonic: The Game among its upcoming titles for the year.
The title is expected to hit stores from this September.
Mat Hart, co-founder and creative director at Steamforged Games said: “Sonic: The Card Game is fast family fun you’ll race through again and again. Here at Steamforged, most of us have been chasing rings with the blue hedgehog since we first played the original Megadrive game.
“Now we’re thrilled to be working with SEGA and can’t wait to bring the game into the hands of Sonic fans of all ages.”
In Sonic: The Card Game, two to six 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 from the classic cast including Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Blaze, and Shadow before shuffling 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 £14.99/ €17.95/ $19.95. More information about the game is available on steamforged.com.
