Card battling game Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 hitting the iPad 'this summer'

We told you late last week that Wizards of the Coast was bringing Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 to the iPad sometime in the future.

We now know that this iconic card battling game will hit the App Store "this summer".

"We're excited to make Magic: The Gathering even more accessible to our growing player base by adding iPad iOS to the suite of platforms that Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 will be available on this summer," Worth Wollpert, director of digital games at Wizards of the Coast, said.

"Given that the original Duels and Duels 2012 have been downloaded well over 2 million times combined since its launch in June 2009, our customers are clearly enjoying what we've done with the game to this point, and we're thrilled to be able to offer both new and existing Magic fans exciting content and gameplay options on a world-class tablet platform that many of our customers have been asking for."

It's in the cards

Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 will introduce ten all-new decks of cards, optional manual mana tapping, and several other "exciting features", such as a fresh multiplayer mode called Planechase.

This mode allows you to utilise oversized cards based on various Planes within the Magic The Gathering Multiverse, and to modify the rules of gameplay.
