That's wizard's chess. The new trailer for Scrolls has been released. It comes from Mojang, creators of Minecraft. The trailer shows off some motion comics animation, that will probably introduce us to the story, as well as the in-game battles.
Unlike earlier Magic the Gathering digital releases, in this trading card game (TCG), cards don't merely fight other cards, slicing them down when they win. Instead, you actually get to see your creatures, enchantments, spells and weapons in action. It's pretty cool. Reminds me of that game of Wizards Chess in the first Harry Potter movie.
Although a few rumors have been circulating throughout the web regarding an iOS and Android release, the game will only be available on desktop during its initial launch.
Daniel Frisk, Chief Architect at Mojang, told us, "Scrolls is only for desktop initially, but we have plans for extended availability."
Scrolls will be available on June 3 for $20 for Mac and PC. However, if we all cross your fingers and click our heels together a few times, the iOS and Android release may not be far behind.
