Bushiroad’s Weiss Schwarz trading card game is going back to the world of Sword Art Online for the next booster expansion set, Sword Art Online Re: Edit, releasing on April 28.

Sword Art Online Re: Edit will be a booster-only expansion, sold in 8-card packs and including 100 reissue cards from previous Sword Art Online Weiss Schwarz card sets plus 19 all-new cards.  The complete set will also include 23 parallel cards, and seven different SP gold foil hot stamp signed cards featuring signatures of Japanese voice actors Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Haruka Tomatsu, Kanae Ito, Ayana Taketatsu, Ayahi Takagaki, Rina Hidaka, and Miyuki Sawashiro.  As an additional incentive, four limited edition playmats will be inserted in each full case of 16 20-pack display boxes.

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.

This will be the first appearance of Sword Art Online characters and artwork since the Sword Art Online II Vol. 2 set released last May (see “‘Weiss Schwarz’ Expands ‘Sword Art Online’ Offerings”).  It follows the February release of the previous Weiss Schwarz expansion, BanG Dream! (see “‘Weiss Schwarz’ Expands with ‘Bang Dream!’”).
