A few card updates...


It's been announced (2) that Digimon Card Game events in Japan scheduled for after January 9th have been cancelled due to coronavirus related concerns.

This includes Tamer Battle and Tamer Exchange Party events.

The online related Bandai card game apps will continue to run as planned, including the online event later this month.


They aren't announcing when events will resume for now.



And then...


Special Booster 1.5 previews continue for the US version of the card game!

Won't go over them in detail, since it's the same cards that came out awhile ago in Japan. We get new previews of Gigimon, DemiVeemon, Angewomon, Argomon (Child), RaijiLudomon, and Meramon.


US Boosters 1.0 and 1.5 will contain all the cards from Japanese boosters 1, 2, and 3, featuring their original numbering.


Special Booster 1.5 will be out in February.


Previous Special Booster 1.5 Previews:




The pre-sale for the first wave of English Digimon Card Game releases is out. It includes the first 3 starter decks and special booster 1.0 (a larger than normal booster set containing a selection of cards from the 1st 3 Japanese boosters. When paired with the upcoming special 1.5, it contains all the cards as those boosters in Japan.)

All the day 1 cards (the 3 starter decks, special booster 1.0, and a bunch of promo cards) we have clean images for, which can be found here.
Various rules and other updates for the early release of the Digimon Card Game English version can be found here.
We also have info about the release of Starter Decks 4, 5, and 6 and Booster Set 4 in English here.
Early packaging and promo card details for special booster 1.5 can be found here.
Details of the upcoming Premium Pack & Great Dash Pack can be found here and here.
Details of the January Tamer Party promo cards & rule and Q/A updates can be found here.

I've never realized how cool RaijiLudomon looks until this card. Seeing its Gundam looking head, the screws on its arms and lever joints for its claws, and the hexagon energy shields it creates has me realize how much I like this design.
I like seeing Kenji Watanabe as an artist for this card game like he is here with Argomon, it's nice seeing a lot of new Digimon art from him as a result especially as I can own it on a card in real life. I also would like to meet somebody with Argomon as their Digimon partner, I think somebody like that would be very interesting. Same with Eyesmon

So DemiVeemon is Frog the Jam after all. Now to see what happens with BurningGreymon, DoruGreymon, and KendoGarurumon.

DemiVeemon doesn't matter much right now since all of the cards that interact with "Vee" can't interact with Digitamas iirc, though that doesn't change the fact that it's poor future-proofing in the event a "Vee" support card that can interact with Digitamas does eventually get released. Just hope that they address stuff like BurningGreymon and KendoGarurumon since that would cause unintended interactions not present in the Japanese version, even now.
