Based on details from a Japanese card shop , we have the first information for Digimon Card Game Booster Set 8, plus more!.

As always with super early information take it with a grain of salt.

The 8th Booster Set will be called "New Hero" and will be released on November 26th.


We expect this set will fall in line size-wise with other full size boosters, likely 'around' 112 cards.



In addition, also on November 26th, a 'Special Entry Set' will be out for 640 yen. Starter Decks lately have been fancier and cost a bit more than the first few, and this is likely a cheaper way for new players to start the game.




Booster Set 7 Next Adventure is out next week.
Starter Deck 9 Ultimate Ancient Dragon and Starter Deck 10 Tactician from Another World are out October 29th.
The 2nd Theme Booster will be based on Digimon Tamers and will be out in December. We expect this to be a smaller booster Set, along the lines of Classic Collection.


Hopefully more details (and possibly a sales sheet) soon.




We have clean card images from Booster Set 7 Next Adventure, Campaign Cards, & Tamers 20th Promo Cards.

We also have our first details for Starter Decks 9 and 10 Ultimate Ancient Dragon & Tactician from Another World. Plus the 2nd Theme Booster, Digimon Tamers.


And images from previous Digimon Card Game releases:
Starter Decks 1, 2, and 3, and first 10 promo cards
Booster Set 1 New Evolution
Booster Set 2 Ultimate Power
V-Tamer Promo Cards
Purple/Black Promo Set
Tamer Battle Pack 1 and Tamer Battle Winner's Card
Booster Set 3 Union Impact
Starter Decks 4, 5, & 6, plus Tamer Battle Pack 2 & winner's Card 2, & 1st 2 scene vote cards

Booster Set 5 Battle of Omega, plus Tamer Battle Pack 4, 4th Scene Vote, & Vital Bracelet Pack-In Cards

My money’s on either this Booster or the Starter Decks being Ghost Game related. :unsure:

I doubt it will be Ghost Game themed booster. Will be good if it is tho. Maybe in BT9. By Herrismon appearing in BT7, I see the New Hero being ReArise themed booster. Not to forget Yuuji from Chronicle, and also Ryudamon.

Those are good news, I hope this TCG can keep going for a long time honestly. The mechanics are super addictive and fun, and the artwork is top-notch. I wish there was some sort of Greco-Roman Olympus XII-oriented set in the future in which the Appmon could get a chance to make an appearance as well.

I do wish the boosters fit thier names a bit better. Like Union impact was pretty good it was clear the main idea seemed to be Jogress. throwing in stuff like Arukenimon and Mummymon helped double it as a 02 booster would of been nice to see some armors in it but i do understand also needing to include support for other stuff. but like Great Legend feels like it was a mess. we thought it was gonna be frontier themed and we just got up to Alda and Beowulf and that was it. Battle of Omega/Omni I feel was good enough I mean not much one can do when the sets named after a lv 7 card but at least they included several Omegas and even had some XW stuff so one coudl view the battle bit as a nod to xros WARs. No clue what was up with the name Double Diamond. And well Next Adventure I don't know while i like the name for clearly being a Frontier themed booster it doesn't really fit.

But random commentary on set names aside. Booster 8 being in november does feel like we'll get GG stuff but again thats only what 12 cards? i mean we should have more info on thier Dims by that point So Gammamon, Angoramon and Jellymon thats 3/6 colors, with one line each... Could totally still have room for the ReArise crew. Heavy Leo, Mitama, and LovelyAnge fleshing it out some with Jes that'd only be 8 megas which leaves plenty of room for other megas to bulk the set up some plus various lower levels. So yeah no reason they couldn't give us GG and ReArise.

I really hope it's Ghost Game. If we're lucky enough we might even have a Digimon make its first reveal in the new card game as that hasn't happened before!

Yeah, I have no idea why anyone would think new hero refers to old heroes. They’re gonna want to promote gg

under NORMAL past circumstances i'd agree with - nope not ghost game. However we can't use the old normal anymore... like obviosuly during the days of Savers we wouldn't be getting a Shinegreymon card around the time episode 6 or 7 aired. because it'd be way to early they'd want to release it close to his reveal. However we didn't have anything like the Vital Bracelet back then... good chance while we might not know 100% which of the 4 megas each digi will go and they could totally use the set to misdirect us if they wished. We could likely get a good guess as to which of the 4 is most likely. And since at the very least Gammamon's dim should be out by time the booster comes out (i can't recall the estimated release date for the 3 dims at the moment though) We can at least bet we'll see Gammamon, Jellymon, Angoramon, Their adult forms and gammaon's Perfect at the very least (if not gamma's full line). Plus the tamer cards... so thats 10 cards an option card for each child level perhaps for 13/11X

Maybe whatever villain shows up early on could be included as well for a few more. Ryuji could be included just to pad he set some. I do feel we might see Ranamon and Calmaramon with A mermai in BT8 for a couple reasons- we havne't gotten those 3 yet, same for the metal hybrids, we did get Wood in was it booster 6? So might even see the metal hybrids and Ancient Wisemon, plus of course A Grey and A Garuru to complete the 10 warriors as well as to help pad the set.

We already have cards for these two, but they're also the most likely to get second cards early or at all.

The initial reveal of Imperialdramon happened around Episode 12 or so of 02, which is also when Magnamon got revealed. Imperialdramon was then used about three or four times after that before it showed up approximately half a year later in 02. The Adventure: Digivice released sometime around the period of time Taichi and Yamato were fighting Devimon - it revealed not only the final boss, but also that Blitzgreymon, Cresgarurumon, and Alter S would be in this anime, as well as Pegasmon.

They absolutely would have done that, and in fact have done that before.

But, you are right. They in fact didn't reveal Shinegreymon around Episode 6 or 7.

They revealed it before the anime even started.

I don't think it would be Ghost Game, not in BT8. It's too soon.
What do we expect? They reveal new Ultimates for the GG trio in the card?

Why I think ReArise is fit for the booster simply because first, the ReArise squad is the new hero (we can't say they are old hero at this point) in the franchise and they're quite popular. Herrismon is in BT7 so his friend can follow in BT8. Not to mention Yuuji and Ryudamon. They likely make them show up in the next booster to complete the Chronicle.

The BT8 will be released on November. Ghost Game will be aired at that time sure but I just don't think it will be Ghost Game themed booster. The GG would have their set in BT9 at least.

I mean, the booster title sometimes is vague. Like what Next Adventure exactly in BT7.

If they have Super Modes, yes. Since the Super Modes are always the main marketing push of the end of the series, anyways. And seem to be designed later.

If they're not on TV, most people don't know who they are. All of the Boosters so far have been anime-based or anime-focused. They didn't do like a "Digimon Story" or "Digimon World" booster. At least not yet.

How would it be too soon?

Veemon: card debut April 2000. Anime debut April 2 2000

Guilmon: card debut March 2001, anime debut April 1 2001 (before it aired!)

Agunimon: card debut March 2002, anime debut April 7 2002 (before it aired!)

Agumon 2006: card debut april 12 2006, anime debut april 2 2006

Shoutmon: card debut July 17 2010, anime debut july 6 2010

Gumdramon: card debut: november 24 2011, anime debut october 2 2011

If the anime airs in September or October and this set does have Ghost Game monsters in it it'd be the longest gap between the relevant Digimon's card appearance and anime debut and it it *doesnt*? well, then it'd be even longer. there is a 20 year precedence of the main digimon of the series being in a card set released at the same time or within a month. this lines up perfectly with when Ghost Game will probably air. ghost game monsters and tamers not being in this set would be surprising.

This is incorrect, because Great Legend was always a "Greymon" set. It was advertised around new Greymon cards and Greymon support, and that's what they gave us. Even stuff like DoneDevimon was related to Greymon, in that it debuted opposite WarGreymon.

Next Adventure is an Adventure: and Frontier set. Not quite sure about the choice of "Next" in the title, but they obviously wanted Adventure in the title.

Anyways, I'd be shocked if this set wasn't going to feature Ghost Game. With a title like "New Hero", I feel like 02 and Young Hunters could both also fit the theme as sequels starring "new heroes" to an older generation, so we'll just have to wait and see.

I wouldn't say New Adventure is about Adventure: tbh because it's obviously not, except MetalGreymon and WereGarurumon, and Nidhoggmon lines. Even Chronicle (Kouta and Dorumon) is more dominant here in BT7 than Adventure:. Other than that, it's a Frontier set.

It has the 8 Megas with their kids from adventure:
