Magic The Gathering Arena is arriving soon to mobile devices, starting with an Android edition of the game coming later this month. The online edition of the famous card game has been out for some time now since 2019 on the PC, before launching on the Mac in 2020.
A mobile edition of the endeared trading game was released back at the very start of last year, but because of the lockdowns and the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, that launch date was delayed to 2021. However, it appears that with the new year, the new edition of the game is ultimately going to arrive on phones soon.
Beginning January 28, Magic The Gathering will be making its way to the “palm of your hand” with the official game on Android, along with Android support and iOS devices in the near future. The app will be available to players whose mobile phones will meet the requirements of the game, everywhere on Google and Android devices where it is accessible.
The early access will also feature cross-platform support and all the formats and cards that are currently available in the real Magic The Gathering game such as the upcoming expansion of Kaldheim. The developer hasn’t announced an official release date yet for when the app will make its way to other mobile devices yet though.
The game itself has had several updates in the previous year that it has been out. Not only have several new cards been introduced to widen player’s decks, but various expansions have been launched as well.
The game itself released with an expansion after a beta testing period and became famous overnight because of the ease of playing online. The trading card game genre itself has always been a hit, but with the new inflow of online editions, a lot of famous card games like Magic The Gathering have made their way online – and now, the game is taking the next steps to be right in the palm of players’ hands rather than just on a computer.
Magic The Gathering Arena has had a lot of tight rivalries too, so much so that Twitch has organized eSports tournaments with it, as players take the game very seriously. Whether these contests will continue when the game moves to mobile is unsure, but certainly, players will be just as hyped to play on their devices as they are on a laptop. Soon, fans will be able to enjoy the magic anywhere.
