Dimension of Chaos will be a new Core Booster set, with a total of 100 cards.  “Ever since the Clash of Rebellions booster, we’ve been focusing on past themes and revamping those themes,” Hoashi said. “With Dimension of Chaos, it is the ‘Black Luster Soldier’ (theme) coming back.  The original iteration was a Ritual Monster with no effects.  This time, the new revamped version has powerful effects in addition to being a Ritual Monster.”

The other new theme for the set is the Majispecter.  These cards have smaller Attack points, but more powerful effects.

Dimension of Chaos will release on November 6.  MSRP is $3.99 per nine-card pack.

On December 4, Konami will release the Master of Pendulum Structure Deck.  This will be a 43-card preconstructed deck that includes 12 new Monster and Spell cards.  The central feature of this deck is the new Pendulum Monsters.

Konami released its new Duelist Kingdom Chibi Game Mats at the show (see “New Tournament Series for 'Yu-Gi-Oh!'”) featuring super-deformed style versions of popular characters.  Hoashi pointed out the special feature of the ‘stacked’ packages. “We had some fun with the packaging.  You can mix and match the faces and the hairs and the mouths with all three,” she said.  The mats are MSRP $14.99 each.

The Dragons of Legend 2 booster set will release later this month (see “More Famous Cards Join ‘Yu-Gi-Oh! This Summer”), followed by Clash of Rebellions in August (see “‘Yu-Gi-Oh! Clash of Rebellions’”), and High Speed Riders in October (see “New Special Booster Announced for ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’”).
