Expanded 40-card Set Features the Self-Proclaimed “World’s Greatest Duelist”
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (March 15, 2010) – The rivalry just amped up to a new level with Duelist Pack – Kaiba –. One of the most recognizable characters from any of the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, Seto Kaiba was the primary adversary (and sometimes ally!) of Yugi Muto in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series.
Now, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KDE) has gathered many of Kaiba’s best cards into the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) release. Duelists can now collect the most famous – and infamous – cards ever used by Kaiba, with some all-new never before seen twists. Duelist Pack – Kaiba – will fly off retail and hobby store shelves on April 20.
With 40 cards to collect and Duel with, Duelist Pack – Kaiba – is the largest Duelist Pack set to date. Duelist Pack – Kaiba – features a brand-new Blue-Eyes White Dragon Effect Monster, available for the first time! There are also five Ultimate Rare versions of Kaiba’s most foreboding – and forbidden – cards, including Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End, Cyber Jar, and Pot of Greed. And some cards feature brand-new artwork, including XYZ-Dragon Cannon and Vorse Raider!
As if those cards weren’t enough to win any Duel, KDE has also dropped in two of the biggest monsters ever created: Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon and Dragon Master Knight. Duelists will revel in the chance to get popular but hard-to-find cards like Fiend’s Sanctuary and the alternate artwork La Jinn the Mystical Genie of the Lamp. Additionally, each pack also contains a tip card to help you re-live some of Kaiba’s greatest Dueling moments. Duelist Pack – Kaiba – will be sold for a MSRP of $1.99 per booster pack.
