Sonic The Card Game – Release Date, Price, and Details Revealed

After last month’s announcement of Sonic: The Card Game, Steamforge Games has revealed further details about the game and its box art. The boxed product is expected to launch in September, 2021 at a suggested price of $19.95, £14.99, and €17.95.

The 20-30 minute game allows 2-6 players to play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, or Blaze, as the deck produces a level for the characters to race through. While no specific mechanics have been revealed, Steamforge implies there will be some form of press-your-luck element, stating, “Each time a new card is placed, they must decide whether to keep racing to try and grab a bigger pot of rings, or to retire and collect their share of the rings and bonus cards on the table. If players keep racing, they risk running into enemies and losing lives, but the chance to win more rings and bonus cards could be tempting enough to keep racing on.”

Steamforge Games‘ previously published works include board game versions of Dark Souls, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Resident Evil 2, PAC-MAN, and Ni no Kuni II. Expect a detailed review when the game launches later this year.

  1. Blaze is included this time around, huh? Interesting choice! I thought they’d just be sticking with Team Sonic + Eggman. Those seem to be new renders for Knux and Tails too! I don’t play card games but I do like to collect them so I might pick this up.

  2. I would have prefered artwork by Yuji Uekawa instead of CG renders but I’ll buy the game anyway!!…

  3. Looks Good! It has the characters that are most used: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Shadow. The fact of adding Blaze was surprising, but hey, the more the merrier. We just need more info.
