There is a new CCG on the market. It is called Redakai, and it had it’s launch party last weekend at game stores across the country. The game will also soon have an animated series on Cartoon Network, which I believe is now a pre-requisite for anime CCG’s.
The thing that grabs me about this particular game, is the fact that the cards are in 3D. Reports even say that they appear animated. The cards were developed using lenticular technology, and also feature a stacking mechanic as the the cards are translucent, similar to Gloom.
Whether or not the game is any fun, or worth the amount of marketing that is going into it remains to be seen. I however am at least intrigued enough to go and check it out. More to be reported later.
Here’s the story of the Redakai universe, you can learn about the gameplay on their website. The game features both basic and advanced gameplay.
This is the REDAKAI universe, where good and evil are locked in an intense struggle for the same mysterious energy force: Kairu. In the hands of good, Kairu is a living force that guides the universe. But in the hands of evil, Kairu can be a destructive force unlike anything else. Those who learn to wield this energy become Kairu Warriors, and they aspire to join the ranks of the most powerful Kairu masters: The Redakai.
Many years ago, a great battle took place between two powerful Redakai masters, Boaddai and Lokar — a battle that would forever change the fate of the universe. Known today as the Great Cataclysm, the event resulted in the destruction of the planet Nevrod and the scattering of Kairu energy across Earth.
The Redakai of Earth have assigned their most promising warriors to find and collect Kairu energy. Their greatest challenge remains the villainous Lokar, who has assembled his own teams of warriors to find the Kairu before the Redakai. With the fate of the universe at stake, good and evil are put to the ultimate test.
