During Gen Con 2023, Magic: The Gathering announced that it will expand its “Universes Beyond” series with many upcoming video game collaborations, including Fallout, Assassin’s Creed, and Final Fantasy.
Bethesda’s Fallout is scheduled to launch in March 2024 and will be releasing Commander Decks representing the many factions of the game. Assassin’s Creed is also inbound in Q3 2024, and will also be an interesting series to pull from because of its storied lore and characters.
The Magic: The Gathering and Final Fantasy set is scheduled to release in 2024 and is said to cover all mainline titles from the 1987 original to 2023’s Final Fantasy XVI. While details are scarce about what the set could bring, it would be safe to say that we can expect many beloved characters and references like Cloud, Sephiroth, and much more.
Here’s a quick overview of the announcement:
“Wizards of the Coast also gave fans an update about an exciting collaboration with Square Enix, as Universes Beyond will bring the beloved FINAL FANTASY series to Magic: The Gathering as a tentpole booster release in 2025. The FINAL FANTASY series is known for its highly imaginative worlds, rich stories, and memorable characters. The set will encompass each main FINAL FANTASY game that has been released to date, from the original FINAL FANTASY to the recently released FINAL FANTASY XVI. The set will also be available to play digitally on Magic: The Gathering Arena.”
