Well, for those who are itching to see the next incarnation of this popular game, it’s worth mentioning that for this year, Wizards of the Coast is bringing Magic 2015 – Duels of the Planeswalkers, to the mobile scene.

In this latest installment, you’ll be able to play against opponents through an iPad, Android devices via Google Play, and even the Kindle via the Amazon Marketplace. Aiming for a summer release, Magic 2015 Duels of the Planeswalkers transports players into the center of the action on your preferred digital device, where you’ll be able to engage opponents in a whole new way.
