The trading card game, set for 2008 release, gives players the opportunity to assume the role of their favorite Magi and summon powerful Dream Creatures to battle evil Shadow Magi who are determined to rule all of the Moonlands. Designed to be accessible for players of all ages who have a passion for controlling and mastering hundreds of creatures while exploring intricate and evolving storylines, The Magi-Nation Trading Card Game will include starter decks and booster pack SKUs at launch.
Magi-Nation began airing on CBC and The CW4Kids in September 2007. The show follows the adventures of three young Magi who must journey through the Moonlands with their collections of Dream Creatures by their sides, to defeat the evil Shadow Magi who threaten their magical world. Faced with riddles, mysteries, vastly varying lands and numerous foes, these young heroes and their Dream Creatures must use intelligence, wit and bravery to see their way through the Moonlands. As they continue on their quest they will unlock many puzzles of the Moonlands, and may just learn a few things about themselves along the way. The show will air in Europe on Jetix and Tele München Gruppe, both of whom will also serve as the show's licensing and merchandising arms in their respective territories.
Following the debut of the television series, Cookie Jar Entertainment unveiled Magi-Nation: Battle for the Moonlands in April 2008. Available at www.Magi-Nation.com, this free-to-play/micro-payment online role-playing game enables players to quickly manage their items, spells and creature collection.
A full consumer product line, the final component to Cookie Jar’s multi-platform brand plan, will feature DVDs and a video game in addition to the trading card game. NCircle Entertainment has signed on to be the US home video distributor for the “Magi-Nation” series, with the first two releases set for September 2008.
And Magi-Nation fans will be able to explore the Moonlands and battle Dream Creatures anytime and anywhere with a new NDS Game that will hit shelves this fall.
