San Diego Comic-Con News:  Panini America, publisher of licensed sports and entertainment collectibles announced plans to release a new edition of the classic Score Dragon Ball Z card game in August.
The 2014 edition will include more than 200 new cards, reprints of past fan favorites and will be completely compatible with the original series.  The new game was developed by Panini America Brand Manager Aik Tongtharadol, a former DBZ world champion who also worked on the original game (see "Revamped 'DBZ TCG' Sells Out").
The 69-card 2014 Dragon Ball Z Starter Deck will feature five Prizm technology cards and one parallel in every deck.  MSRP is $14.99.  The 12-card Booster Packs will have an MSRP of $3.99. Release is planned for late August.
Score originally introduced the game, based on the evergreen hit anime series, back in 2000, with the Saiyan Saga starter decks and boosters.  The game was hugely popular (see "Score Advances into Mass Merchants with 'DBZ CCG'") and released 11 expansions, based on different "Saga" story arcs.  After the Kid Buu Saga release, Score shifted focus of the game to the Dragon Ball GT Sagas in 2003 (see "Score Gets 'Dragon Ball GT'"), and introduced some key rule changes, though the game was still compatible with previous versions.
Score redesigned and reintroduced the game in 2005 as the Dragon Ball Z Trading Card Game (see "'DBZ TCG' Back in July"), but the rules of the game were changed to accommodate FUNimation’s Ultimate Uncut Edition DVD releases, and the new edition was not compatible with previous expansions.  The game was officially discontinued in June 2006.
Bandai America released the unaffiliated Dragon Ball Collectible Card Game (see "Bandai Announces 'Dragon Ball CCG'") in 2008.
