A DAWNING LIGHT HERALDS NEW BEGINNINGS IN THE Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME!
El Segundo, Calif. (July 13, 2017) – Everything is about to change in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG)! Time-honored themes return and a new way to Summon revolutionizes the way you play, as two new releases from Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI) usher in the future of Dueling: Battles of Legend –Light’s Revenge– and Starter Deck –Link Strike–.
First, relive some of the greatest confrontations from the different eras of the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series with Battles of Legend –Light’s Revenge–. New cards for the Gladiator Beast, D/D/D, and HERO themes will make an impact, including Vision HERO Witch Raider, a massive “HERO” monster that demolishes all of your opponent’s Spell and Traps.
New Timelords, new Abyss Actors, and new support for the Dinosmasher’s Fury Structure Deck are met by some of the most competitive Xyz and Synchros in tournaments today, from Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon to Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn…an Xyz Monster so powerful it was only available as a Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Prize Card, until now.
Battles of Legend –Light’s Revenge– arrived July 7 with 80 all-foil cards: 60 Ultra Rares and 20 Secret Rares. MSRP: $3.99 per 5-card pack.
On July 21, Starter Deck –Link Strike– introduces the long-awaited Link Monsters! New rules for Link Summoning make where you Summon your monsters just as important as how and when you play them, giving you new ways to counter your opponent’s plans and control the competition. Position your monsters and link them correctly to protect your cards, boost your Attack Points, or reuse whatever you link to; the possibilities are endless and the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME will never be the same.
This set also introduces a brand-new Type of monster to join Dragons, Warriors, Spellcasters, and all the rest. Inspired by networking machinery, this new Type of monster takes today’s digital technology and turns it into Dueling technology!
Starter Deck –Link Strike– launches July 21 with 43 cards: 38 Commons, 2 Ultra Rares, 3 Super Rares, a Beginner’s Guide, and an updated Game Mat with new Extra Monster Zones. MSRP: $9.99 per box.
