Sword Art Online: the Movie - Ordinal Scale
More characters and themes from the popular Sword Art Online franchise will be joining Bushiroad’s Weiss Schwarz trading card game with the upcoming Sword Art Online: The Movie - Ordinal Scale booster expansion, releasing on December 22.
This expansion set draws on material from the Sword Art Online movie, and will include a total of 100 different cards with 22 parallels. Three of the cards feature all-new artwork for the game drawn by the studio that produced the animated movie.
Cards in this expansion are intended for Neo-Standard decks, and can be combined with any cards from previous Sword Art Online sets, including the most recent set, Sword Art Online Re: Edit (see “‘Sword Art Online’ Characters Return to ‘Weiss Schwarz’”)
Ordinal Scale will be offered as eight-card booster packs, sold in 20-pack displays. Each display will include one of four possible PR cards. Each 16-display carton will also have four exclusive playmats. Additional SP gold foil signature hot stamp chase cards will be inserted in random packs, featuring autographs from the movie’s voice talent, including Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Kirito), Haruka Tomatsu (Asuna), Kanae Ito (Yui), Ayana Taketatsu (Leafa), Rina Hidaka (Silica), Ayahi Takagaki (Lisbeth), Miyuki Sawashiro (Sinon), and Sayaka Kanda (Yuna).
