A few card game previews...



A promo poster for the new starter decks is showing up at stores in Japan.

This was sent to stores to promote the release of Starer Decks 7 & 8 next month and features the card art of Dukemon and ULForceV-dramon that also appears on the packaging of the new starter decks.

Nothing new here really, just a nice look at the art.


Plus a bit more...

From what little we can see of around the cards, it appears this is from a new issue of Card Gamer magazine.

The cards are Royal Saber and ULForce Saber, featuring Dukemon & ULForceV-dramon doing their signature blade attacks.

Interestingly, the ULForce Saber art appears to be a homage to similar artwork done by (ULForceV-dramon designer) Tenya Yabuno of ULForceV-dramon Future Mode a number of years ago, which was used in Hyper Colosseum.

The Dukemon art may also be a homage, but there is so much art of Dukemon it's a bit harder to pin down (the pose is also one that wouldn't be out of place from a number of anime and games.)


Card Gamer magazine often had a large spread for the Digimon Card Game, so hopefully we get more shortly.


Thanks to baidu and Weibo users for the images.

They look pretty good!
Though interesting to see that "Saber" is spelled differently on each card; 「セーバー」for Dukemon/Gallantmon and 「 セイバー」for Ulforce. I wonder why? 🤔

Both are accurate transliterations of the word "Saber", though the second is slightly more accurate.

The one from Ulforce "Saber" (セイバー) is the same as the one from Digimon Savers (セイバーズ) so maybe it's meant to be "Ulforce Saver", rather than "Ulforce Saber". I guess the anime can also be translated as "Digimon Sabers".

Interestingly enough, the セイバー is also the start of SaviorHackmon so I guess he can also be Savor/SaberHackmon, and the attack could be Ulforce Savior and the show Digimon Saviors (this one kinda sounds like it'd make more sense than Digimon Savers you know)

Japanese doesn't distinguish (a lot of the time) between B and V, so "Seiba" and "Seiva" are the same.

This has been used for puns before, many times, yes. That said, Digimon Savers is absolutely the intended title.

Meaning the attack and Digimon should prob be Ulforce Saver and SavorHackmon.

Or it's a typo like Orgemon.

No, that is not what it means, "doesn't distinguish" still means that "saber" is as correct as it was before... especially since it's the attack where he uses his saber. There's just more than one "correct" way to transliterate that word and in fact more than two, as SaberLeomon and Metallicdramon's "Laser Saber" spell it "サーベル" instead.

Lovely effects and arts. Hope UlforceV-dramon will get Future Mode as new card to support for sure.

Orgemon is spelled the way it is because Ogre is sometimes translated directly as Org in Japanese. It's technically a typo, but it's accurate in Japanese.

Same story with Tyranomon there - it should, by all logic, be Tyrannomon, but that word is transliterated as Tyranosaurus in Japanese, so they all have one N.
