Hatsune Miku cards are coming to MtG, here’s the release date

Hatsune Miku cards in Magic the Gathering Secret Lair

The iconic Vocaloid Hatsune Miku is returning to MtG and will finally do so in card form. 

Magic: The Gathering has pushed hard for crossover sets as of late. The upcoming Marvel x MtG crossover and recently released Fallout set, Magic: The Gathering has started to rival Fortnite with its crossover potential. Given how Magic: The Gathering accounts for over half of Hasbro’s gaming revenue, these crossovers make sense for releasing regular collectibles or souvenirs for non-endemic audiences.

However, only some players are fans of these multimedia collaborations. Some hardcore players consider the crossovers a distraction for primary sets at best and a predatory way to reprint cards for more profit at worst. Regardless, these sets garner enough success for Hasbro to keep making more. This time, it’s for a more popular character amongst the online fandom. 

Are there Hatsune Miku cards in MtG?

New Hatsune Miku Cards will debut in Magic: The Gathering’s Secret Lair brand.

MtG’s Secret Lair brand focuses on stylish reprints of existing cards, usually based on specific themes and franchises. 2023 saw the release of a My Little Pony-themed set titled Ponies: The Galloping 2, and the Doctor Who: Regeneration set. 

MTG Secret Lair announced the collaboration with an original song and music video. This collaboration isn’t the first time Hatsune Miku and MtG have crossed paths. In February 2022, Hatsune Miku released an original song to promote Magic’s Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. At the time, however, Miku did not receive any special cards. 

When is the release date for Hatsune Miku cards in Magic: The Gathering?

The new Hatsune Miku MtG cards will go on sale on May 13, 2024.

Hatsune Miku’s set will arrive in tandem with the 2024 Spring Superdrop. Hatsune Miku’s set includes reprints of the cards Shelter, Miku’s Spark (Chandra’s Ignition), Harmonize, Miku: Lost but Singing (Azusa: Lost but Seeking), Miku: The Renowned (Feather: The Redeemed), and Inspiring Vantage. 

These reprints will not have mechanical changes from the existing cards. The Hatsune Miku cards will only receive a limited run, so fans shouldn’t take their time in picking them up.
