Studios Second Dinner and Nuverse unveiled their upcoming free-to-play game, Marvel Snap, a lightning-fast trading card game (CCG) that ditches the traditional turn-based system.
Marvel Snap comes in part from a new studio full of veteran developers who worked on Blizzard’s Hearthstone to combine years of CCG wisdom with the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe.
Featuring a merciless “snap” mechanic by Thanos and matches with a life expectancy of just three minutes, Second Dinner aims to offer players a highly dynamic take on a card game.
In partnership with Marvel Entertainment, publisher Nuverse and developers are preparing to incorporate 80 years of superhero history into its 2022 release.
During its May 19 reveal, people got to see Marvel Snap in all its glory, with a full gameplay overview and a look at some of the heroes from the 150-card collection set to launch.
Second Dinner touts its game as the “fastest card battler” in the multiverse, and with good reason: as we mentioned, Marvel Snap has no twists and sets the stage for sizzling back-and-forth matches.
“We’ve stripped away anything that gets in the way of ‘fun’ and put everyone straight into strategic action,” Chief Product Officer Yong Woo said in the reveal video.
Players fight in three out of a total of 50 “locations” and the goal is to win two of the three settings.
Gameplay includes a Cosmic Cube mechanic to up the ante, a “retreat” option for strategic depth should a location go south, and decks full of cards with special abilities.
Marvel Snap de-powers a traditional card so every moment feels impactful. With 12-card sized decks, there is no time to breathe as both players play their hands at the same time.
Marvel Snap is slated for release sometime in 2022 for iOS, Android, and PC, with a closed beta registration window open now for people interested in testing the game.
