The collectable card game is planning to release Secret Lair sets and it includes two popular video game franchises
The collectable card game is adding four new franchises to its expanded Universe Beyond initiative which includes the two popular fantasy franchises Warhammer and Lord of the Rings, as well as two major video game franchises, Fortnite and Street Fighter.
Fortnite and Street Fighter Secret Lairs
A hefty portion of the Magic Showcase 2021 was dedicated to Universe Beyond, explaining how they hope the initiative will draw new players to the strategy card came in order to grow the community. The Universe Beyond cards will look a little different compared to the standard cards as the card frames will be different to the rest as well as having a unique, holofoil stamp to identify them with.
Yet the Secret Lair sets are also a little different themselves. Secret Lair is a sub-brand of Magic the Gathering cards that revolve around collectable sets with unusual themes and art styles. There are already some crossovers with other franchises already, such as Godzilla and The Walking Dead. These cards usually have limited print runs, therefore they can easily become very expensive collectable items.
Not many details have been revealed, apart from it has been teased Fortnite will be featured in two special Secret Lair drops consisting of reprints like we have never seen before, and Street Fighter will be celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2022 and it has been hinted Chun-Li will be amongst the number of classic Street Fighter characters in the artwork provided below. Chun-Li’s card will have the multi kicker keyword ability.
