Last month we brought you the news that Sega was partnering with Steamforged Games to release an officially licensed Sonic the Hedgehog card game, creatively named… Sonic the Card Game.
Now we have our first details regarding the game, courtesy of Tails’ Channel!
The game will let 2 to 6 players pick a character from Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, and Blaze, and “race through new levels” while collecting rings and defeating enemies. The player with the most rings and lives at the end of the game will win. The box also suggests each game will take 20-30 minutes.
Here’s a breakdown of the flow of the game from Steamforged –
“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. “
Unfortunately the only image we have of the game so far is the box itself, but hopefully we’ll see more soon! As for the card game itself, it’ll release in September 2021.
