Exclusive: Konami reveals Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG news

Published on: 9th August 2022

Konami Digital Entertainment tells us why retailers and consumers alike should be excited about the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG in the second half of 2022.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game (TCG) has gone from strength to strength in recent years. A large part its success can be attributed to fan-pleasing packs that have offered new ideas, beautiful designs and strong desirability among players.

Collector’s tins have been a staple of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG since it first came to the West in 2002, and the 2022 Tin of the Pharaoh’s Gods will continue this historic 20-year run in style. The 2022 tin will include three extra-large Mega-Packs, with each 18-card pack featuring a stunning Prismatic Secret Rare.

Perfect for players new to the Yu-Gi- Oh! TCG, Speed Duel offers an instantly fun and easy-to-learn way into the game. This specialised version of the TCG also lets fans play as fan-favourite Yu-Gi-Oh! characters, granting them special abilities in Duels.

The rest of the year will see Structure Deck: Legend of the Crystal Beasts feature a resplendent cover featuring a new form of Rainbow Dragon that can wipe the field in one devastating blow. Following this up, the Battles of Legend: Crystal Revenge booster set will introduce never-before released cards from the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, making it a must-have for longstanding Yu-Gi-Oh! fans.

The Darkwing Blast new launch is set to feature brand-new themes for players to use to their advantage, plus a new version of Black- Winged Dragon can destroy every card on the field.

There’s also more to come in 2022, with products harking back to the beloved Yu-Gi-Oh! GX animated series. The Elemental Hero accessories will feature nostalgic artwork that debuted in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX era.
