Press Release: The Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game Hot August Products

The action heats up in August, when Konami sets the summer ablaze with new Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG releases! Two hot booster sets arrive just in time to kick off the 2016 Dueling season, ushering in a new era for collectors, competitors, and fans of every Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series.

On August 5 The Dark Illusion reinvents some of Yugi’s greatest cards with an all-new core booster set. Magician’s Robe and Magician’s Rod make Dark Magician Decks more consistent, while Yugi’s original powerhouse unites with the Magician of Dark Illusion to unleash Ebon High Magician – a fearsome Xyz Monster that bends the rules of sorcery to change how Spell and Trap Cards are played. With 100 new cards, The Dark Illusion introduces themes like the ancient Triamids, the agents of SPYRAL, the colossal Subterrors, and the high-speed Metalfoes, destined to become a force in tournament play. New support for Performapals and Shiranui skyrockets these themes to new heights, while groundbreaking cards like Pot of Desires, Cosmic Cyclone, Coral Dragon, and Floodgate Trap Hole raise the bar anywhere you want to play them.

Duelists got their first taste of The Dark Illusion at Sneak Peeks scheduled for July 30 and/or July 31 at participating Official Tournament Stores (OTS). Duelists can find more information and a list of participating locations here. MSRP: $3.99 per pack.

Legends unite! Dragons of Legend -Unleashed- arrives August 19, with some of the most-wanted cards from all five eras of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series. From Yu-Gi-Oh! GX comes Alexis Rhodes’ “Cyber Angel” Rituals, and five new planetary monsters. From Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, Jack Atlas’ Red Nova and the Duel-warping Scrum Force rev it up. From Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal come several new “Number” Xyz Monsters, including the indomitable Number 100: Numeron Dragon. And from Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, the peculiar Cardian monsters make their début. Duelists can also upgrade their Extra Deck even further with monsters like Galaxy Stealth Dragon, Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon, and Number 24: Dragulas the Vampiric Dragon.

The Legendary Dragon monsters Timaeus, Critias, and Hermos return from Dragons of Legend and Dragons of Legend 2, bringing their Fusion Monsters and support cards with them, along with other heavily demanded cards from these sets. Each 5-card pack contains 4 Ultra Rare Cards and 1 Secret Rare Card. MSRP: 3.99 per pack.
