DUELING HEATS UP THIS SUMMER IN THE Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME!
Hawthorne, Calif. (June 29, 2022) – The best thing about being a Duelist? There’s always something new! Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI) is ushering in the summer tournament season in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) with a new release and a slew of special events. Find signature cards from the anime alongside competitive powerhouses played by heroes like Yugi Muto and Jaden Yuki, as well as villains like Yami Bakura and Yuri, in Legendary Duelists: Season 3.
Ready to travel? KONAMI’s bringing Dueling excitement to not one, but two of the world’s leading fan conventions in July: Anime Expo and San Diego Comic-Con. And on top of that, the days are ticking down to one of the biggest tournaments of the year: the North America Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship!
Courageous heroes and sinister villains return! Legendary Duelists: Season 3 is your second chance to own the biggest hits from Legendary Duelists: Immortal Destiny and Legendary Duelists: Magical Hero. Like Legendary Duelists: Season 2, this new release celebrates key cards from the original sets as never-before-seen Secret Rares! And since Jaden Yuki’s cards appeared in both original boosters, Ultra Rares in Legendary Duelists: Season 3 come in 3 versions, featuring foil-stamped card names in the colors of the Duel Academy dorms from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. That means red Ultra Rares for Slifer Red, blue Ultra Rares for Obelisk Blue, and standard Ultra Rares for Ra Yellow!
If you like playing the bad guy, you’ll find Bakura’s Curse Necrofear and Destiny Board cards, plus Fusion powerhouses played by Yuri in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, like Predaplant Triphyoverutum, Starving Venom Fusion Dragon, and Predapractice! Fans of Yugi will want cards like The Dark Magicians, Magicians’ Souls, Magicians’ Combination, and Soul Servant. And if you want to be a real HERO, you can snag Jaden cards like Elemental HERO Sunrise and Elemental HERO Liquid Soldier, as well as Destiny HERO – Malicious and Evil HERO Adusted Gold! With over 100 cards in total, the power of legends is yours to command.
Legendary Duelists: Season 3 arrives July 22, and each box contains a total of: 1 Secret Rare, 2 standard Ultra Rares, 2 red Ultra Rares, 2 blue Ultra Rares, 30 commons, and 1 collectible die. MSRP: $15.99 per box.
The Summer season is in full swing, and that means amazing opportunities to meet fellow fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.
