A few card game things to go over!



The Digimon Card Game has officially launched in Japan with the release of the first 3 starter decks (10 promo cards had been released early in the leadup to it.)

As people get cards and want to talk about playing the game, or elements related to it, feel free to hop in the Digimon card game section of the forum.



On top of that, a couple of bonus items have been announced tying in with the game launching.



First up, they released a printable playmat featuring the artwork of the signature Digimon from each of the new starter decks.

You get the playmat by doing a questionnaire about getting the game. We've gone ahead and extracted the image from the PDF and put it in the gallery under promo items for the new card game. The image embed above is a smaller version, but clicking it links to the full size one so you can use and print it.




Then we have something that isn't out yet...



The Digimon TCG Twitter showed off some upcoming special design memory gauges.

These will be sent to card shops and given away at events for free.

The MetalGarurumon one uses his art from his Booster Set 1 card that we first saw recently in V-Jump.

We have not seen the WarGreymon art before as far as I can tell, but it presumably is from a currently unseen card from Booster Set 1. We also get to see a red version of the Digimon Card Game logo (I think up until this point we've only seen it officially in blue?)



And then, since the card game is out today...



A new card preview!

The Digimon Card Game Twitter has updated again with a look at 1 more cards from Booster Set 1 New Evolution (likely going with a single high interest card since the game is officially out today.) It's Omegamon!

The scaling issues continue, but the art continues to be good. We've actually seen this very good Omegamon art before, as it's used all over the images we've seen of packaging for the booster set (the card also showed up in a V-Jump preview.) Omegamon is the first white/colorless card we've seen in the card game.


Booster Set 1 is scheduled to release on May 15th.


Previous card previews for Booster Set 1:



For those looking to see how the card game works, the official Digimon Card Game Youtube show, Fun Digica, has had a number of previews, including matches, leading up to the release:

does Omegamon evolve from either a signle red card or blue card or does it need to evolve from both a red card and blue card?

I keep seeing scaling issues being mentioned. What exactly is meant by this? I’m not seeing it.

look at the outline in the art, especially the outlines on Omegamon's horns. It's distorted in weird ways because the image was made larger

Please give us an English version. It would be awesome to play and easily understand my cards.

It isn't necessarily small to large, it could be larger to smaller (small to large introduces it's own issues, but you can get it to look somewhat clean, even going from small to large.) It's that 'whatever' resizing filter they are using is not good for this type of artwork (it is 'vaguely' possible they are doing it on purpose so there aren't proper card images before they do put versions on the website later.)

It's 'probably' not necessary for me to mention it, but I'd rather make it clear that the cards simply don't look as nice as they will be if you choose to buy them.

The easiest place to see it probably isn't the card art, but rather the circle at the top left and how it keeps 'stuttering' (Omegamon due to the way he's drawn looks particularly bad with the scaling issues compared to a number of these cards though.)

Now I see it, thank you.
