Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. Partners with Hobby Stores for Upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Raging Battle Retailer Sneak Peek May 2nd-3rd
Thursday April 09, 2009
Dear Hobby Store Owner,
Mark your calendars! Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KDE) is gearing up for its second Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) Sneak Peek event. Raging Battle (MSRP $3.99 per nine-card pack) will be released first at local hobby stores participating in the KDE Sneak Peek event on May 2nd and/or 3rd, depending on each store’s preference. The Raging Battle booster set will be available nationwide on May 12th for hobby stores and major retailers not participating in the Sneak Peek event.
Raging Battle picks up where the previous booster set Crimson Crisis left off, with all-new Synchro Monsters, Spells, and Traps. Raging Battle introduces two new families of monsters. Foremost are the Earthbound Immortals – powerful, ancient monsters that are the focus of the current TV storyline. Also included are the new Koa’ki Meiru monsters, a new deck theme specifically designed to counter the most common tournament decks and strategies. Raging Battle also includes many cards used by fan favorites Yusei, Jack, and Leo from the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s animated series.
