Press Release: The Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Reaches Maximum Crisis, As Dimensions Collide in May

April 30, 2017

This May, Konami helps Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG players get Duel-ready with the release of two exciting new products: the Maximum Crisis booster set introduces a host of new themes and cards for players of all skill levels, and in Duelist Pack: Dimensional Guardians, familiar faces emerge from the past to join the heroes of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V on a quest to reach their home dimension.

Duelists prepping to be in top game-form for summer tournaments and casual play can get a Sneak Peek at the Maximum Crisis booster set April 29 and/or 30 before it officially releases May 5. This all-new 100-card booster set is the climax of the 2016-2017 Dueling season, introducing three new themes as well as bold new cards for a wide variety of popular Decks like Performapal, Speedroid, Phantom Knights, Zoodiac, and more. Pendulum Summoning will undergo its final evolution in Maximum Crisis with a pair of Pendulum Monsters with Scales of 0 and 13, opening up the ability to Pendulum Summon monsters of any Level in any Deck! Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring grants powerful new negation effects; and the long-awaited True Dracos finally make their arrival. Dragonic Diagram is a tremendous new Field Spell that boosts the ATK and DEF of all “True Draco” and “True King” monsters, protects them from destruction, and even searches them from your Deck. Combined with the True Kings from Raging Tempest and The Dark Illusion, it’s a must-run for new strategies built with Dinosmasher’s Fury Structure Deck. Maximum Crisis contains 100 cards: 48 Commons, 20 Rares, 14 Super Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, and 8 Secret Rares. MSRP: $3.99 per pack.

Closing out May, Duelist Pack: Dimensional Guardians will be on store shelves May 26. Jack Atlas, Kite Tenjo, and Alexis Rhodes make their return in Duelist Pack: Dimensional Guardians, armed with cards from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, as well as new cards from Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, on their journey through the Synchro, Xyz and Fusion Dimensions. Competitive Duelists will find brand-new cards for popular ARC-V strategies like Performapals, Speedroids, Frightfurs and Raidraptors, powering up some fan-favorite strategies in modern Dueling. The Duelist Pack: Dimensional Guardians set has 45 cards: 22 commons, 10 Rares, 6 Super Rares and 7 Ultra Rares. MSRP: $1.99 per pack.

Press Release: Watch Out This April as an Epic Battle Looms Between Technology and Tyrannos in Newest Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG

April 4, 2017

Duelists can participate in the ultimate battle between man-made monstrosities and the greatest predators nature has ever produced when Konami unleashes the Machine Reactor Structure Deck and Dinosmasher’s Fury Structure Deck on April 14 for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.

The Machine Reactor Structure Deck uses the popular “Gadget” series of monsters, most recently seen in Movie Pack Gold Edition, while new cards like Ancient Gear Hunting Hound and Ancient Gear Howitzer from Raging Tempest shook the rust off “Ancient Gears.” The Machine Reactor Structure Deck takes both themes to new heights with Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon, a 3000 ATK boss monster that powers up with help from Gadgets and Ancient Gears. Meanwhile two new search cards keep your Deck running like clockwork: Ancient Gear Wyvern and Ancient Gear Catapult.

Not to be outdone, the Dinosmasher’s Fury Structure Deck provides the ultimate Dueling experience with powerful new Dinosaur-Types that devour their own for powerful effects. Souleating Oviraptor searches a player’s Deck when it hits the table, and helps Duelists make quick Special Summons. Feed them new support monsters like Petiteranodon to make even more Special Summons, or keep Dinos sated with Jurraegg Token and other cards, using the new Lost World Field Spell. Ultimate Conductor Tyranno can attack every opposing monster, shifting battle positions and burning an opponent for damage when it wipes the field.

Dinosmasher’s Fury Structure Deck is also adept at Summoning multiple Dinosaurs of the same Level at the same time, and most of those monsters are Level 4, which makes this Deck a perfect fit for Xyz Summoning!

Each Structure Deck comes with a 41-card Main Deck and one Token Card for a total of 42 cards. MSRP: $9.99 per Deck.

Each Machine Reactor Structure Deck contains:
36 Common cards
3 Super Rare cardsmov
2 Ultra Rare cards
1 Ancient Gear Token
1 Beginner’s Guide
1 double-sided Deluxe Game Mat/Dueling Guide

Each Dinosmasher’s Fury Structure Deck contains:
