Magic: The Gathering planeswalking again

Stainless's adaptation of Magic: The Gathering might not offer the complete tabletop experience, but it certainly helps stave off cravings for expensive cardboard. The series will return this summer with Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, which is itself doing a little platformwalking to appear on iPad for the first time, as well as PC, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

Along with new decks and puzzling challenges, DotP will pack a multiplayer recreation of the card game's Planechase variant. There's naturally also a new final boss, in the form of recurring MtG villain Nicol Bolas.

For Magic veterans, DotP adds the ability to manually 'tap' lands, so it won't scupper your devious plans and combos by using the wrong resources.

There's no firm release date for DotP 2013 yet, nor a price, but previous games have cost $10.
