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.

“Not only will Digimon that can evolve from 2 colors appear, but so will effects with 2 colors!”

Original image uploaded by @0924HI.

The October issue of V Jump magazine (out on the 21st) leaked early this morning, showing illustrations from Booster Set 3: UNION IMPACT. The issue confirmed the name of the set, which was leaked by Amazon late last month, and the release date of October 30th, featuring the same art of Blitz Greymon found on the leaked booster pack art. V Jump promises that Digimon with “effects that activate when revealed as Security Digimon” will appear, as well as both Digimon and card effects belonging to two colors.

The theme of Booster 3 is Jogress Evolution, evolution from two different Digimon that was originally introduced in the Digimon Pendulum series virtual pets. (The issue makes note of where it came from.) The TCG represents Jogress as a Digimon being able evolve from two different colors. The set includes Paildramon, a Perfect-level Digimon that can evolve from Stingmon or XV-mon—their colors are not explicitly confirmed in the issue, but they’re most likely Green and Blue, as in the Digimon TCG so far all Insect-type Digimon are Green and all Mythical Dragon-type Digimon are Blue.

The issue also includes illustrations of Mastemon, Lilithmon, Blitz Greymon, and Terriermon. Mastemon was introduced in the video game Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth as a Jogress of Angewomon and Lady Devimon (and thus probably evolves from Yellow/Purple) while Blitz Greymon is one of the components needed to Jogress into Omegamon Alter-B or Alter-S, of Digimon World -next 0rder-. The other component, Cres Garurumon, is on the cover art of the set.

Terriermon’s art presents him with Chocomon, the Baby II form of Lopmon; the two have often been presented as a pair since their debut in the double-feature film Hurricane Touchdown/The Golden Digimentals, where they were the double partners of a single Chosen Child. The illustration could be hinting at a potential Jogress combining the two lines, but the existing Digimon canon doesn’t have one specifically made for them, and so far the TCG has not introduced any new Digimon in its own right.

Given Mastemon’s inclusion in the set, and Booster 2: ULTIMATE POWER‘s introduction of Re:Digitize-themed Taiga and Rina Tamer Cards, it’s possible UNION IMPACT will include a Mikagura Mirei Tamer Card. Other potential Tamer Cards include Motomiya Daisuke and Ichijouji Ken from Digimon Adventure 02 (associated with Imperialdramon, the set’s cover card) Wallace from Hurricane Touchdown/The Golden Digimentals (partner to Terriermon and Lopmon) and Tsuzuki Shouma of Digimon World -next 0rder-. (Partner to Omegamon Alter-B.)

Early leaked pages from monthly V Jump magazine reveal two new promotional cards: a Tamer Card featuring Yagami Taichi of the V-Tamer 01 manga, and a Digimon Card of his partner, Zeromaru the V-dramon. (Called “V-dramon Zero” on the card.) The cards will be included in next month’s issue, out May 21st.

V-Tamer 01 remains the longest-running Digimon manga of all time, having started in November 1998 four months before the start of Digimon Adventure and ended in August 2003, one month after Frontier finished. The manga was written by Izawa Hiroshi and illustrated by Yabuno Tenya, who also created the original design for Yagami Taichi later reused by the Adventure anime. Yabuno designed a number of famous Digimon for the manga, including Holy Angemon, Ulforce V-dramon, and Arkadimon.

The March 21st issue of V Jump magazine contains the detailed rules for the 2020 Digimon Card Game, out this April. The game is played with decks made up of exactly 50 cards containing Digimon, Tamer, and Option Cards, with an additional “Raising Area” set aside made up entirely of Digitama Cards. The exact limits of the Raising Area were not discussed, but the first Starter Decks come with three Digitama Cards and the sleeves launching alongside them especially for that zone number five in every pack. Up to 4 copies of any card with the same Card Number can be included in a deck.

There are four phases to a turn in the Digimon Card Game:
