The Digimon Card Game Twitter has updated with card previews from Booster Set EX-02 Digital Hazard. This time it's IceDevimon and Gokumon.

Some really nice artwork for a pair of Tamers villains. IceDevimon gets some art that makes him look quite monstrous and works well.

Gokumon wasn't in Tamers, but gets in by a bit of logic loopholing. Digimon Tamers: Battle Evolution (Digimon Rumble Arena), was a multiseason game, but came out while Tamers was on air in Japan, so was branded as a Tamers product, leading to an interesting choice for including in the Tamers set.




Previous previews for Booster Set EX-02 Digital Hazard:

Booster Set EX-02 Digital Hazard will be out on December 24th in Japan.




We have clean card images from Booster Set 8 New Hero, Starter Deck 11, plus Tamer Battle Pack 9 & Event Cards.

Oh neat, Reapermon. he technically counts as tamers from rumble arena I suppose. Glad to always see him since he's one of my faves from back in the PS1 days and never really gets used that often.

Oh yes, didn't expect that. Well, Battle Evolution is also part of Tamers. Nice big boss right here.

Ice Devimon was totally expected, but Gokumon not at all.

Oh I didn't play the game so I was thinking something stupid like "they associated Reapermon with D-Reaper just for fun".
I still don't recognize that eyed thing on its art, is it just part of its technique?

I think in the game they’re a new flat hexagonal form of Kuramon that created Gokumon? I’ve heard that he was conceived as a subspecies of Diablomon.

The Kuramon hexagons were from Revenge of Diaboromon, and they also appear in the last stage of Rumble Arena
We're getting a rumble arena rep because it was called Digimon Tamers: Battle Evolution in japan, and also today is its 20th birthday

Yeah, the Kuramon bands are part of Gokumon's battle arena, which references the fourth movie. They don't really have any direct connection to him.

I wonder how would it be like if Reapermon was the final antagonist in Tamers anime along with the D-Reaper.

Somewhere.
Love seeing stuff we didn't expect like Gokumon i mean yeah he came from a tamers related game and such but while the locomon/Parasimon movie obviosuyl makes a ton of sense and should be expected random game boss- casue of the presense of agu and co I don't think i really considered it part of Tamers but rather just digimon in general.

Well, as pointed out, the game was called Digimon Tamers: Battle Evolution. Like Brave Tamer and the original Battle Spirit, it was marketed as a Tamers game.

Fair enough though I have trouble parsing Rumble Arena as a tie-in to specifically Tamers not due to the roster consisting of nine Adventure/02 characters vs four Tamers characters (including unlockable characters that aren't Digivolutions).

It seems more like it would be a tie-in to Adventure, 02 and Tamers together.

And also that Tamers isn't even in the dub name so most fans outside Japan wont even know the Japanese version has Tamers in the name and so wouldn't have expected to see it like some seem to have expected it

Was not expecting Gokumon, but I am plesantly suprised we are getting him.

Hopefully there will still be room for all the ADRs though.

Reapermon
