In 2017, a new Yu-Gi-Oh! feature-length film will hit movie theaters: Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions. This new story, from original series creator Kazuki Takahashi, reunites the characters of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series, picking up the story where the last season of the original series left off.
With original Duelists Yugi and Kaiba front and center, we can all expect a lot of Dark Magician and Blue-Eyes White Dragon action.
Because Blue-Eyes White Dragon is also the star of May 2016’s Shining Victories booster set, and Dark Magician headlines August’s The Dark Illusion, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. is offering an early release of the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Movie Pack in advance of the animated film.
This early release will enable Duelists to pack their Shining Victories and The Dark Illusion-era Decks with the powerful new Blue-Eyes and Magician cards featured in the movie! The new Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon Fusion Monster can attack up to 3 times in one turn with its 4500 Attack Points (quickly ending almost any Duel). In the unlikely event it’s destroyed, this powerful Fusion Monster’s spirit lingers in the Graveyard, protecting your other Blue-Eyes monsters against card effects. What’s new for Dark Magician? New Spells and Traps to access your DARK Spellcasters in the hand, Deck, or Graveyard, plus new flavors of “Magician Girl” monsters like Berry Magician Girl, Apple Magician Girl, and Kiwi Magician Girl, with powers to get Spellcasters into play and re-direct enemy attacks to where you want them to go. In addition, many of Yugi’s other famous monsters also get plenty of upgrades in this set!
What about the bad guys? The upcoming theatrical release introduces a new villain, Aigami, whose dimension dueling “Cubic” monsters make up a big chunk of this set. “Cubic” monsters have wide-ranging powers to shut down your opponent’s monster effects and stop them from attacking. Their math-centered strategy builds up over time, with each round of monsters getting you more cards to work with and setting up for the next level, building ultimately to their massive Fusion Monster, who slashes the opponent’s Life Points in half with every attack!
