Duels of the Planeswalkers lets players simulate the Magic: The Gathering trading card game through lush interactive 3-D environments. The arcade-style game takes players on a journey through a vast Multiverse of unique worlds where they are deemed Planeswalkers, powerful mages who battle others for glory, knowledge and conquest.
Players can choose to battle against the computer or compete online against real-life opponents using Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade. With numerous game play scenarios, including multiplayer game mode, Duels of the Planeswalkers offers an unrivaled depth in which each game is different from the last. Wizards of the Coast is supporting this release with an exclusive promotional card, which includes brand new artwork, making Duels of the Planeswalkers a game that both new and existing Magic players will enjoy.
Introduced in 1993, Magic: The Gathering is the first and most widely played trading card game. With more than 10,000 different cards available, Magic offers an unrivaled depth of game play with several choices and customizations available for its players.
Said Patrick Buckland, CEO of Stainless Games, "Breaking the half million barrier with Duels on XBLA is a fantastic way for us to start 2011. We'd like to thank Wizards for all the great support they've shown us on the project, and of course all the Magic fans, old and new alike, who have bought the game."
Said Matt Edmunds, Stainless's COO, "Our strategy of concentrating on Console Download early is really paying off, with all the major corporate players now agreeing that 2011 will be the Year of the Download. With our multi-platform technology, we'll be hoping to emulate the success of Duels for other brands on everything from an iPhone to a high-end PC and keep up our track record of at least one No1 per year!"
