International Toy Fair 2015 News: Konami Set To Demo New 'Yu-Gi-Oh' Trading Card Game Sets And Expansions This Weekend
Konami Digital Entertainment is bringing nearly its entire 2014 line of Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game expansion sets to the International Toy Fair in New York City this weekend.
There are so many Yu-Gi-Oh! sets, you'd think it'd have its own convention. Products on release through early summer of this year will be available for demoing, and we hope a little playtesting. These are games, not priceless antiquities after all.
The third (yes, third) relase for 2015 hits shelves tomorrow. The 60-card The Secret Forces, all-foil booster set includes 32 new cards from these three monster groups, plus 28 carefully selected classic cards to supplement Duelists' Deck-building efforts, including the hard-to-find Preparation of Rites, which has been out of print for more than five years.
Thankfully, if an all foil set isn't your cup of tea, you only have to wait two weeks until February 27 for the Secrets of Eternity Super Edition. For $9.99, you can get three booster packs of Secrets of Eternity, plus 1 of 14 Super Rare cards, for what ends up being a pretty sweet deal.
But wait there's more!
Konami then makes us wait almost a full month (like, three weeks) until March 20 when the Premium Gold: Return of the Bling set lands in stores just in time for Easter. The new set delivers updates and upgrades to dozens of more cards from the early days of Yu-Gi-Oh! to the present day, including a wealth of old and new Gold cards. Three mini-packs are included in each box, for $14.99.
April 17 marks the debut of the all foil Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Superstar set, which collects 50 cards previously available only in Korea and Japan and brings them onto the world stage. $3.99 per pack.
The new booster pack Crossed Souls launches on May 15 for $3.99.
And finally, The newest generation of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and TV series - Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V - is supported with the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Starter Deck*! Designed to teach new Duelists how to Duel with a 40-card pre-built Deck, the Starter Deck is based on the popular characters and monsters seen on the TV show. The ARC-V Starter Deck is slated for a May 29 release, for $9.99 per box.
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? This is only until July, there will be more coming for the back five of 2015, too.
If you are fancy enough to be an industry professional, you can check out all of these at the Konami Digital booth at the International Toy Fair this weekend at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan at booth #4834. The Fair runs from Saturday, February 14 to Tuesday, February 17.
