Hawthorne, Calif. (March 12, 2024) – The Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) is ready to Spring forward! Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI) is thrilled to offer Duelists two releases in the month of March, and excited to give new looks into the future of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. It all begins with an encore appearance from an all-time classic: by popular demand and for the first time in over 7 years, KONAMI is revisiting the Legendary Decks II boxed set! Then, Duelists and fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX can relive one of the greatest story arcs from the animated series, as Speed Duel GX: Midterm Destruction brings the Society of Light to Speed Duels!

First up, one of the biggest fan-favorites of all time is back! Seven years ago, Duelists were able to collect 3 legendary Decks all in 1 box. Legendary Decks II let Duel fans relive their favorite moments from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, featuring pre-built Decks honoring the legacies of Yugi Muto, Joey Wheeler, and Seto Kaiba. Each of the 3 Decks features iconic cards that played pivotal roles in some of your favorite episodes, from Exodia the Forbidden One and the Egyptian God Cards, to Red-Eyes Black Dragon and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon. Now, after years of waiting, Legendary Decks II will finally be available again, complete with everything that made it a hit the first time! Here’s what you’ll find inside…

The first Deck puts you in the role of the Duel Monster era’s greatest hero. Gather all 5 pieces of Exodia the Forbidden One, and automatically win the Duel, as one Duelist showed the world last year at YCS Indianapolis. Or you can command the legendary team of Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl! Attack with the mighty Buster Blader or defend your Life Points with Marshmallon. Activate iconic Spell Cards like Yugi’s Gold Sarcophagus and Swords of Revealing Light or trick your opponent into activating Trap Cards like Mirror Force and Magical Hats!

The second Deck challenges you to become the ultimate underdog, Joey Wheeler! Summon Joey’s signature monster Red-Eyes Black Dragon and discover updated versions of Joey’s favorite monsters, like Phoenix Gearfried and Blue Flame Swordsman. Tribute Summon the Trap-blocking effect of Jinzo, Xyz Summon the burning powerhouse Red-Eyes Flare Metal Dragon and confuse your rivals by Fusion Summoning Alligator’s Sword Dragon!  Spell Cards like Red-Eyes Fusion and Scapegoat fuel your strategy, while Red-Eyes Spirit and Call of the Haunted prove that you can never keep ‘dis Duelist down!

The third and final Deck features the greatest cards for none other than Seto Kaiba! With 3 copies of Blue-Eyes White Dragon (each with different artwork!), you’ll power your plays with combo cornerstones like Dragon Spirit of White and Kaibaman! Bolster your ranks with time-honored attackers such as Vorse Raider, Blade Knight, and La Jinn the Mystical Genie of the Lamp, then use The Melody of Awakening Dragon and Polymerization to assemble your most powerful engine of destruction! Synchro Summon Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon, and Fusion Summon the unstoppable Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon!

What else will you find in the Legendary Decks II? How about 3 Ultra Rare Token Cards, each depicting one of the three legendary Duelists with their signature monsters: Yugi with Dark Magician, Joey with Red-Eyes Black Dragon, and Kaiba with Blue-Eyes White Dragon! And every box comes with 3 more cards to power up Decks built around Yugi’s Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl: Secret Rare printings of Dark Burning Attack, Dark Burning Magic, and the wildly powerful Trap Card Eternal Soul, a must for any Dark Magician Duelist! Legendary Decks II also includes all 3 playable versions of the Egyptian Gods: Obelisk the Tormentor, The Winged Dragon of Ra, and Slifer the Sky Dragon!
