For fans of the "ultimate fusion of strategy and fantasy," tomorrow is for you on XBLA when 'Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers' releases.
Also hurdling toward us is that crime fighting duo, Sam & Max of the Freelance Police as they try to crack "a string of baffling mind-control cases." It's their first season, Save the World.
"This arcade-style game takes you on a journey through a vast Multiverse of unique worlds where you are deemed a Planeswalker, a powerful mage who battles others for glory, knowledge and conquest," Major Nelson on Magic: The Gathering.
Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers is releasing tomorrow for the sum of 800 Microsoft Points. Sam & Max Save the World meanwhile will come it at 1600 Microsoft Points, which includes all season one's episodes.
"Can the Freelance Police find the culprit behind this evil plot before the entire world slips into a hypnotic trance? Find out in this six-episode series chock full of comical characters, entertaining exploration, and sarcastic asides!"
Magical conquest, or comical mayhem... it's a tough one alright.
Magic: The Gathering arrives on XBLA tomorrow, Sam & Max too
