The Disney Lorcana TCG has taken the world by storm. ( Seriously, the game will expand into 10 new countries in 2024, bringing its total up to 20.) And we at Nerdist are certainly huge fans. Not only does Disney Lorcana bring us a ton of gorgeous artwork starring our Disney favs, but it also offers incredibly intricate and fun gameplay. And the TCG shows no signs of slowing down. Disney Lorcana has released two sets: The First Chapter and Rise of the Floodborn. In 2024, four more new Disney Lorcana sets will arrive. And now, Ravensburger has officially let us know the release dates for these anticipated arrivals. In addition to the release dates for the new Disney Lorcana sets, a new standalone product designed for beginners, Disney Lorcana TCG Gateway, will also come our way.
Let’s take a look at this Disney Lorcana 2024 news.

The Disney Lorcana TCG plans to release four sets per year, much to the delight of fans. In 2024, the first Disney Lorcana release will come in February, and it will feature a set we already heard a little bit about: Into the Inklands.

Beginners Can Join in the Fun with Disney Lorcana TCG Gateway
Of course, trading card games can quickly become intimidating to new players, especially as the amount of lore and gameplay continues to increase. But to ensure Disney Lorcana remains beginner-friendly, Ravensburger is introducing a new product to the mix, Disney Lorcana TCG Gateway. The Gateway product is designed to introduce new players into the beautiful world of Disney Lorcana.
A release further shares of the Disney Lorcana product:
The Disney Lorcana TCG will introduce a new stand-alone product called Disney Lorcana TCG Gateway, a progressive learn-to-play experience designed to ease new players into the game and TCG space. This ultimate beginner’s introduction to the Disney Lorcana TCG includes everything two players need to play right out of the box: two 30-card basic Disney Lorcana TCG decks, a two-player game board with character standees, rules and player’s guides, and additional cards that players will be rewarded to add to their decks as they learn about the card types and gameplay. When players have played through all of Gateway, they will have built two standard Disney Lorcana TCG decks they can take and play with friends.
What a great idea, honestly. Beginning new games, especially ones that involve deck-building and certain amounts of customizations, may feel intimidating to new players, even those who really wish to play. Creating a product that will walk players through the toughest parts to figure out alone is really genius. We hope many folks who’ve been waiting to try out Disney Lorcana can now join in the fun.
Disney Lorcana TCG Gateway will release on August 9, 2024. It will retail for $24.99.
