As of early this morning, the card list for BT-03: UNION IMPACT is complete, with translations for every card in the set. Alternate artwork parallel prints are still being added, but the standard rarities are entirely accounted for.
The latest issue of V Jump magazine, out on the 21st, reveals that Booster Set 4: GREAT LEGEND will include the Spirit Digimon, Agnimon of Digimon Frontier, and feature new Digimon with the «Digiburst» keyword introduced in the next wave of Starter Decks.
This volume of V Jump showcases several of the high-rarity cards from Booster Set 3: UNION IMPACT, including the long-awaited Secret Rare card Imperialdramon: Dragon Mode. This new print of Dragon Mode is a Green counterpart to Blue’s Super Rare from the same set, with a Piercing-focused effect rather than a Jamming one.

[During your turn] [Once per turn] When this Digimon destroys an opponent’s Digimon by battle, Activate it.

The Starter Decks introduce a new keyword, “Digiburst”, which functions like the soulblast mechanic in Cardfight!!

Bandai put out four card previews for each deck along with the announcement. These have been added to the Card Database under each deck’s section:
