Wizards of the Coast, the publisher responsible for tabletop roleplaying game Dungeons & Dragons, is the studio behind Magic: The Gathering, with the company working alongside Street Fighter publisher Capcom to release the Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair x Street Fighter Superdrop.

Magic: The Gathering is a trading card game that sees two players going head-to-head to eliminate their opponents’ character. Each player has a deck made up of 60 cards, which they’ll be able to play as long as they have mana to spend. Players can acquire mana by playing land cards, with the different types of land cards fueling cards of the corresponding colour. If players have minions on their board, then their opponent will be forced to attack them before they can attack the player’s character. Spells can also be used to boost minions or perform various other abilities. Whichever player manages to defeat their opponent first is named the winner.

Street Fighter is a video game series which was first released in 1987 and has since seen five additional mainline entries, alongside multiple spin-offs and re-releases. The iconic video game series has two players competing against each other as rival fighters, using their respective characters’ moves to whittle down their opponents’ health to zero. A player successfully wins a match if they are able to defeat their opponent in two rounds. The newest entry to the franchise, Street Fighter 6, was revealed earlier today.

The Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair x Street Fighter Superdrop is set to be released on March 18th, at a retail price of £50 ($68) for the foil cards and £40 ($54) for the standard cards.
