Alright so I just screamed like a teenage girl in the front row of a New Kids on the Block concert. This morning Wizards of the Coast announced that a new installment of their Duels of the Planeswalkers series of Magic: The Gathering games was coming. Granted, this isn't much of a surprise since Duels has historically been incredibly popular, so much so that quite a few people (myself included) directly attribute the game to the resurgence in interest in the physical Magic: The Gathering card game. What is surprising is that among the announced platforms, Wizards also dropped the bomb that the game will be coming to the iPad.
Details beyond that are basically non-existent, but it's safe to assume that Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 will play just like its predecessors, except with the inclusion of new cards from this year's sets. I'm stoked as hell, not only because I've been playing M:TG basically my entire life, but because I think there's lots of interesting things that can be done on the iPad with the IP. For instance, a Magic Online client for the iPad?
Just take my money Wizards, take it all.
