ANCIENT TREASURES UNCOVERED FOR THE Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME!
The Lost Art Promotion Begins February 2018
El Segundo, Calif. (January 10, 2018) – Are you ready to discover the lost art for some of the most powerful cards ever printed in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME? Six special cards that have existed since the beginning of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME are about to surface with new artwork through the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME The Lost Art Promotion, beginning February 2018 at participating KONAMI Official Tournament Stores.
These cards hark back to the original Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series and its pervading Egyptian theme, all used by Yugi in his quest to regain the lost memories of the Pharaoh and save the world from evil. Monster Reborn and all five pieces of the unstoppable Exodia have been available in Asia for nearly two decades with special card art that was never released outside of that continent. But thanks to The Lost Art Promotion at Official Tournament Stores, those cards will soon become available worldwide!
During The Lost Art Promotion, customers who spend a minimum of $30 (excluding sales tax) on Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG products at Official Tournament Stores will receive a free “lost art” promotional card with their purchase (while supplies last). The Lost Art Promotion will span six months, and a different promotional card will be available each month.
Beginning in February, participants in The Lost Art Promotion will receive a special copy of an Ultra Rare Monster Reborn, featuring the original 1999 artwork, never before released outside of Asia and pre-dating the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME’s release in North America! Over the following five months, Duelists will be able to get Exodia the Forbidden One, Left Arm of the Forbidden One, Right Arm of the Forbidden One, Left Leg of the Forbidden One, and Right Leg of the Forbidden One from the Lost Art Promotion, also with their 1999, never-seen-outside-of-Asia artwork.
Enthusiasts of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series and the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME have waited for over fifteen years to see Monster Reborn and the five pieces of Exodia printed with their original card arts. Soon they’ll be able to get those special cards simply by purchasing Yu-Gi-Oh! products at a participating Official Tournament Store.
Additionally, Duelists can watch a new episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V every Sunday on Nicktoons – check local listings for times. In addition, all-new Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL episodes every Tuesday as well as all of classic Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s can be seen on www.yugioh.com in the United States. In Canada, Duelists can watch episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V every Friday and Saturday on Teletoon! For more information on KONAMI or the Yu-Gi-Oh!
