It is no secret Magic: The Gathering is returning to one in all its most requested planes in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. Although just a few years in the past, Wizards of the Coast would have stated it could be extraordinarily unlikely we might see the Japanese-inspired location represented in its personal set once more. Immediately, we’re getting our first good take a look at what Kamigawa is like within the current day, stuffed with extra vivid lights and superior know-how than we have ever seen in Magic earlier than.
Going down 1000 years after the unique three-expansion Kamigawa block from 2005, Neon Dynasty takes the Japanese taste of these basic units and provides a definite cyberpunk type. The transient video connected to the tweet above reveals all types of visuals not usually seen in Magic. LED panda masks, a neon-lit metropolis, and what could or is probably not holograms scream that this isn’t only a leap ahead for the airplane, however the recreation itself.
Earlier than Neon Dynasty, there have been difficult machines and artifacts, however most have been magical in nature and primitive-looking in comparison with what the Kamigawa residents are utilizing these days. Even weapons are hardly ever seen printed on cardboard, making the opportunity of a wild west airplane as unlikely as a return to Kamigawa was. Hopefully, with Magic increasing its technological horizons by the best way of ninjas and samurai, we’ll see the ideas obtainable to the sport develop as nicely down the road. Possibly Streets of New Cappena, one other upcoming set stuffed with demon mobsters and noir aesthetics will lean into extra real-world trendy weaponry.
Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty is coming to Magic: The Gathering Arena on February 10, with the complete bodily set releasing every week later. We’ll see extra of the enlargement tonight throughout Wizard’s weekly Magic Twitch stream, more likely to showcase plenty of art, field and booster packaging, and a few playing cards and mechanics, as is the norm when pre-orders for units go reside.
