Weiss Schwarz trading card game with the introduction of the BanG Dream! Trial Deck.
The new expansion is based on Bushiroad’s own BanG Dream! multi-media project, which features the adventures of the musical group “Poppin’ Party” as they try to find the ultimate “Star Beat.” The stories first appeared in Monthly Bushiroad in 2015, and will be the feature of an anime series releasing next month.
To make the BanG Dream! Trial Deck more appealing to experienced players, Bushiroad is packing a few extras features. The deck will have two Level 3 characters and multiple cards with popular “Change” and “Brainstorm” abilities. Every card in the deck appears twice, making it easier for players to collect playsets of all the cards, and two cards in each deck will be foils.
The English language version of the new expansion does not include the gold or silver campaign coupons from the Japanese Edition. They may only be used in tournaments held outside of Japan.
Bushiroad will also release the Love Live! Sunshine!! expansion on February 17, which is also based on a multi-media project about music idol schoolgirls (see “‘Love Live! Sunshine!!’ Joins ‘Weiss Schwarz’”).
