"It was important for us to ensure that this game is accessible to all players. Whether you're a casual gamer, tournament player, or collector, there's something for everyone in this game,” said Jim Cartwright, Product Strategy Director at Fantasy Flight Games. “Simple game mechanics are the driving force behind the design. It's clear and concise, no frills - a card game at its purest."
Star Wars fans and collectors can experience the Star Wars galaxy in a whole new way with never-before-seen, fresh artwork. Dedicated TCG fans and collectors can look forward to collecting special cards with different visual designs. And in fact, at least the only illustration published so far indicates a change in style - so far, all Star Wars graphics in the games from Fantasy Flight Games have looked the same, albeit with a high visual quality. For the new trading card game, they are probably going for a more comic-like look - compare with Disney Lorcan. The parallels to the Disney hero TCG may not be a coincidence, after all the licenses are all from the “House of the Mouse”.
“The ability to commission a new design for each card in this game ensures an exciting and cohesive style throughout. We thought about how the cards would look side by side on the table,” says Brian Schomburg, Visual Creative Director for Fantasy Flight Games. "We're proud to create something so unique using the iconic characters and locations that Lucasfilm brought to life with the Star Wars franchise."

All departments at the studio are putting an incredible amount of resources into this game. “We couldn’t be more excited about the release and look forward to everyone being able to experience it,” said Chris Gerber, Head of Studio at Fantasy Flight Games. “We can’t wait to show you more.”
The cover photo also gives a hint that Star Wars Unlimited appears to be aligned with the classic trilogy, at least for the start of the trading card game. With the approaching release in the coming year, an increased volume of information is to be expected.
