“Mabinogi Duel isn’t just a small step…it’s a huge leap for Mabinogi, and for NEXON Korea,” said Dong-Gun Kim, director of developer devCAT. “We’re hugely excited about blazing new trails into the US mobile gaming market, and we’re delighted to begin our journey with this new chapter in the Mabinogi brand. With the exception of the excellent game Hearthstone, there haven’t been many attempts to bring authentic, tactical card battles to mobile. We can’t wait to share our own take on tactical card-battling with the rest of the world.”
Mabinogi Duel will be a full-featured card battle game that will offer an unprecedented amount of content, including a substantial single-player campaign and an enormous card library containing more than 1,000 cards that represent powerful and rare characters and creatures to bring into battle. In addition, the game will feature head-to-head competitive play that will let players build a tightly constructed playing deck from their collection to use during tactical duels, in which careful placement of units and smart use of the game’s turn-based mechanics will win the day. There are no draws in Mabinogi Duel. Instead, card battles will come down to skillfully using the game’s exquisitely balanced card library in a way that will let players relive the excitement of their favorite childhood card battle games.
Mabinogi Duel will feature characters and features that recall NEXON Korea’s popular MMO Mabinogi, including a colorful fantasy world full of elves, goblins, warriors and witches, along with regular post-launch content updates known as “Generations” that will add even more single-player campaign content and more playable cards. The game will also offer a unique card trading feature that lets nearby players trade cards with each other from their mobile devices through Wi-Fi.
Mabinogi Duel is in development at NEXON Korea, the developer and publisher of such international hit games as Maple Story, Combat Arms, and Vindictus, with the purpose of offering one of the deepest and most full-featured trading card game experiences ever to appear on mobile. The game is scheduled for release in May for iOS and Android. For more information, please visit the official Mabinogi Duel website.
