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.

Beginning November 27th, Bandai will be running a new promo card campaign in Japan. Players that purchase any two Starter Decks out of ST-4, ST-5, or ST-6, will receive a promo pack containing two cards out of a possible three: Metal Garurumon, Black War Greymon, or Gran Kuwagamon.

From the official Japanese Twitter account, the final form of Lee Jianliang’s partner in the Digimon Tamers anime.

Saint Galgomon is named after two different breeds of dogs, the Saint Bernard and Galgo Español. During the production of Tamers‘ English-language dub in 2001, Galgo was mistranslated as “Gargo”, and the word “Saint” was dropped in favor of “Mega” to avoid potential religious controversy, creating “MegaGargomon.” More recently, in the English-only game Digimon All-Star Rumble Bandai called it “SaintGargomon.”

A leaked sales sheet for the fourth Digimon booster set, GREAT LEGEND, was shared by Malaysian Twitter user Jimi Hiew yesterday. According to the sales sheet, BT-4 will launch December 18th in Japan, and comprise 115 cards: 44 Commons, 30 Uncommons, 26 Rares, 12 Super Rares, and 3 Secret Rares.

The set will feature support for Digimon with “Greymon” in the name, including War Greymon, Shine Greymon, and Victory Greymon—the last of which has yet to get a card in the TCG proper. Unlike past sales sheets, BT-4’s cover art reuses existing card artwork instead of showing new ones. The set’s cover cards both come from BT-2: ULTIMATE POWER.

Like all of the preceding booster sets, it will include alternate-artwork Parallel Tamer Cards as box toppers.

[During both turns] When another Digimon is destroyed, get +1 Memory for each Digimon destroyed.
Source Effect

Belial Vamdemon has some interesting combo potential with the Fatal Bond keyword, as another Digimon resolving Fatal Bond will cause his controller to gain 2 Memory, 1 for each of the Digimon destroyed. This has potential as an engine for generating enough Memory to play higher-cost cards, though at the moment there are only a small number of Digimon with the keyword.

The official Digimon Card portal updated early this morning with the next set of Tamer Battle and Tamer Meet promotional cards.

Beginning in October, tournament winners will receive an alternate artwork Were Garurumon print from Starter Deck 2: Cocytus Blue. This Were Garurumon is identical to the Starter Deck version in effect and card number. The previous prize card was an alternate print of Metal Greymon.

Meanwhile the Tamer Meet shop events for October will feature a new Option Card, “A New World”, as the participation prize. Tamer Meets are more casual-oriented events than the competitive Tamer Battles, with an emphasis on having fun over competing to be the best. They consist of 2 hours of free battle participation, rather than a tournament structure.

Main Effect[Main] If you have a “Tachikawa Mimi”, by placing 1 “Palmon” from your hand without paying the cost, return your “Tachikawa Mimi” to your hand.
Security Effect[Security] Add this card to your hand.

This card is the first of several to be adapted from popular Adventure, 02, tri., and Last Evolution Kizuna anime scenes voted in by fans through Digimon Web. The artwork is pulled directly from episode 54 of the 1999 Digimon Adventure TV anime, which is why the Chosen Children in the artwork do not use their reboot designs.

“A New World” creates an interesting combo for the Green deck; it allows a Green player to use Palmon‘s on-place effect for 0 cost, and (if they have enough Memory) use Mimi‘s Rest effect twice in one turn by first Resting her to activate it, then playing A New World to bounce her back to hand and play her again. This is easiest to do if Mimi was already in play when the turn began, and it requires the opponent to have given the Green player at least 4 Memory to pull off.

The official English Digimon Card Game Facebook page announced today that the English-language versions of the Starter Decks Gaia Red, Cocytus Blue, and Heaven’s Yellow, will each cost $9.99 at retail when they launch early next year. This is roughly double the price of the Japanese Starter Decks, which famously retailed for just 500 yen and were the cheapest decks ever printed in the Japanese market, but to compensate each English deck is bundled with a single Booster Pack of Special Booster 1.0.

Both the Starter Decks and the Special Booster will first be available at a special pre-sale held at select hobby shops in November 2020, while their retail release will be in January 2021. The Special Booster combines cards from the first three booster sets of the Japanese game, NEW EVOLUTION, ULTIMATE POWER, and UNION IMPACT.

Bandai announced today that an English localization of the 2020 Digimon Card Game will launch in January 2021, with a “special booster” that combines Booster Set 1: NEW EVOLUTION, Booster Set 2: ULTIMATE POWER, and Booster Set 3: UNION IMPACT into a single 187-card base set titled Special Booster 1.0.

Printing only 187 cards from those three sets leaves out 152 cards, which will be included in a follow-up Special Booster, 1.5. Bandai put out an official Facebook page for the game, along with a new “world.digimoncard.com” domain, different from the “en.digimoncard.com” domain used for the game’s Asian-English website.

Special Booster 1.0 booster packs have double the number of cards of a Japanese pack, with 12 cards in every pack. Booster boxes still contain 24 packs each, for a total of 288 cards per box. It has not been stated how many boxes are in one wholesale carton, but if it’s also 12 boxes as per the Japanese edition, then that’s 3,456 cards per carton—exactly double the number of cards in a Japanese carton. The price per pack is also doubled from the Japanese release, $3.99 before tax versus 180 yen.

The Starter Decks Gaia Red, Cocytus Blue, and Heaven’s Yellow will launch in English simultaneous to the Special Booster. A special prerelease sale will be held at select stores in November 2020 where all four products will be available ahead of their street date. An English version of the tutorial app is also in the works.

The Starter Decks do change the game’s recommended age rating—in Japan the decks are labeled for ages 9 and up, while in North America the decks are labeled for ages 6 and up.

The launch trailer for the English card game notably uses the name “Tai Kamiya” for Yagami Taichi, even though the official subtitles for the 2020 Digimon Adventure: anime use “Taichi Yagami”—the card game preserves a 20-year-old misreading of the 八神 kanji.

The 2020 anime reboot leaves Taichi’s name uncensored.

However, the Starter Deck names have gone unchanged, despite having dubbed equivalents—Gaia Red, Cocytus Blue, and Heaven’s Yellow are named after their respective Digimon’s attacks Gaia Force, Cocytus Breath, and Heaven’s Knuckle, which are normally dubbed as Terra Force, Metal Wolf Claw, and Hand of Fate.

As a translation of the Japanese game, the Digimon Card Network will continue to use the correct names.
