So recently, as in yesterday, GameSpot posted a trailer for Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, coming soon for XBox360, PS3 and PC. In it, you’ll find Gideon Jura near death while the silhouette of Nicol Bolas hovers over him. No no, that’s not a spoiler, it’s the first thing that happens. Gee, get over it. You’ll get a taste of Gideon’s backstory, and see some of our favorite other planeswalkers along the way.
If you keep an eye open at the end of the trailer, you’ll see the old Gideon Jura card with an expansion symbol from M12. Guess that means no new Gideon. That’s okay though, it’ll give all of us poor slobs who don’t have a Gideon another chance to pick some up.
