A new expansion set for Konami’s Yu-Gi-Oh!  Trading Card Game, called Duel Power, will release on April 5 [On March 19 - release updated to April 3].

The Duel Power set will include a total of 100 cards, all with “Ultra Rare” rarities.  The complete set features 40 new cards drawn from across the history of the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, such as Magician of Chaos, Cyber Dragon Nachster, Signal Warrior, Utopic Onomatopeia, and Number 39:  Utopia Double.  The other 60 cards will be reprints of popular cards, including four “discard” effect cards, spells, traps, Link Monsters, and some out-of-print cards.

The Duel Power cards will be packaged in booster packs with five Ultra Rare cards in each booster.  The boosters will be sold as part of a boxed set, with each box holding five booster packs plus six new Ultra Rare variant art cards featuring the main monsters from each Yu-Gi-Oh! series:  Dark Magician, Elemental HERO Neos, Stardust Dragon, Number 39:  Utopia, Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, and Decode Talker.  Also included in each box is a double-sided game board that showcases Yu-Gi-Oh! history.

In January, Konami will begin its second Lost Art Promotion series (see “A New ‘Lost Art Promotion’ For ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’”), as well as launching the new Speed Duel format (see “New Details, Pic for ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’  Speed Dueling Launch” and “‘Yu-Gi-Oh!  Speed Duel’ Gets First Booster”).  An all-foil set will release in March (see “‘Yu-Gi-Oh! – The Infinity Chasers’”).
