April 30, 2014

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. is speaking to the masses with the introduction of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Primal Origin booster set on May 16th. Primal Origin provides a bounty of cards that support more than 20 different Decks and includes a new Spell Card that every Duelist will want to have in their Deck.

TCG Duelists will be psyched to see cards from recent themes like Noble Knights, Bujins, and Sylvans. Additionally, cards for tournament staples like Monarchs, Gladiator Beasts, and Dark World will be coveted for every level of tournament play. Primal Origin also arms Duelists with new Chaos Xyz Monsters and the most powerful Rank-Up-Magic Spell card to date, Rank-Up-Magic – The Seventh One, a ‘must-have’ card for summoning Xyz Monsters right out of a Duelist’s Deck. In addition, KONAMI delivers a special treat for Duelists as Primal Origin debuts a brand new theme, Artifact monsters, which cripple an opponent if they dare destroy them.
