Wow, it's been a moment since our last update via blog post, hasn't it? And if you're a TCG enthusiast like we are, you may be asking questions like "where are all the product releases?" It's almost like an invisible floodgate has been in place since the start of this year, holding back all of the glossy cardboard-clad products we crave. But now that floodgate is nearing a breaking point, and the cracks in the dam are appearing... Because we're in danger of being swept away by cardboard!
Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet, and beyond!
This one's the Donphan in the room. The collecting potential of this set is going to be simply outrageous. The new card rarities of Illustration Rare and Special Illustration Rare take the place of the polarizing Hyper Rares of previous sets, while Full Art cards and Secret Rares remain. The generation nine starter Pokémon will be present within the set, as well as a cacophony of other highly collectable Pokémon. New and old icons will appear such as Miraidon, Koraidon, Great Tusk, Iron Treads, Arcanine, Gyarados, Gardevoir, Klawf, Kingambit, Dondozo, and... GASP! Wiglett!
One Piece CG: War, war never changes...
Booster Set 02 "Paramount War" is set to be a massive hit for players, as is the complementing navy-themed Starter Deck aptly named "Absolute Justice!" We're soon to see a shift in terms of support for virtually all deck archetypes with this new set. Bandai has also already made it known that OP-03 "Pillars of Strength" and more recently OP-04 "Kingdoms of Intrigue" will be reaching us sooner rather than later, so expect more updates soon! Oh, and keep an eye out for new official One Piece sleeves too!
Digimon CG: I dreamed I was a butterfly...
With the recent release of BT-11 "Dimensional Phase" we have finally received a new pool of cards to mess around with. Before the end of March we're set to see both the PB-12E 2nd Anniversary Set product and the Advanced Deck of the Demon King himself, Beelzemon! But Bandai is wasting no time in getting new releases to us, as BT-12 "Across Time" will be set to launch on April 28th! Keep one eye on the horizon however, because there's a timeline of products already planned. From main sets like BT-13 "Versus Royal Knights" to extra sets like EX-04 "Alternative Being" and even special products like PB-14 "Tamer Goods Set Angewomon & LadyDevimon" it looks like June and July are going to be busy!
Battle Spirits Saga: The Dawn of History!
In terms of news for our little store, Bandai seems to have been rather tight-lipped. Thus far we are confirmed to be receiving Starter Decks 01 through 04 and the very first Booster Set. We're also confirmed to be holding a Store Release Event! ... And that's all we have for you right now. A little underwhelming, I'm sure. But if this is your first exposure to the presence of Battle Spirits Saga at Brokenvase Games, then... Hooray! Get excited!
Grand Archive: Master the Elements!
The Dawn of Ashes is coming, and in my humble opinion, it looks like absolute FIRE! This card game is brand new from prospective card game creators... "Weebs of the Shore" ...? Seriously... Well, if you haven't tried this game, please ask either Tom or Lawrence the next time you're in-store to give you a demo. It's definitely a lot of fun, and we've got Starter Decks and the first Booster Set on the way!
... And there you have it! That's what's on the immediate horizon for us here at Brokenvase! If you'd like to pre-order any of the products mentioned in this article, please don't hesitate to have a look here on the website!
