The first Digimon Card Premium Edition sets were released last year at DigiFes 2019 and then got a release at Premium Bandai later.
Mirroring that approach is the new Digimon Card Premium Edition sets for Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna. They were first sold in theaters showing the movie, and now they're up at Premium Bandai.
The sets add a half dozen cards each to (what is probably) the 2 best known Digimon card types that the franchise has had over the years, the Digital Monster Card Game (better known as Hyper Colosseum), along with collector cards from Bandai Carddass.
The card sets were made to commemorate the release of Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna.
So for the first set...
The Digimon Card Premium Edition, Card Game Version!
In this set we get a number of interesting Digimon from the new movie. It starts with Omegamon, and alongside that we get the new evolutions Agumon- Bonds of Courage, and Gabumon- Bonds of Friendship. The bottom row is one of the forms of Eosmon, alongside XV-mon and Stingmon (both of whom look like they are drawn in poses based on how they appear right before jogressing?)
The cards are mounted in plastic holders in a foldable cardboard sleeve featuring new artwork by Kenji Watanabe of the 4 02 partners in their child forms. When closed it shows the new art of Omegamon, XV-mon, and Stingmon.
As for the other set...
The Digimon Card Premium Edition, Carddass Version!
In this set we get new art of characters from Kizuna, in the art style of the movie. The cards are Taichi & Agumon, Yamato & Gabumon, Agumon- Bonds of Courage, Gabumon- Bonds of Friendship, Omegamon & Eosmon, and Daisuke & V-mon.
The cards, like the other set, are mounted in plastic holders in a plastic sleeve, with the opposite side of the cards inside the sleeve featuring the art of the characters from the cards. When closed it shows the new art of Taichi, Agumon, Yamato, Gabumon, Daisuke, V-mon, and Omegamon.
But there is a bonus...
2 more cards!
if you buy both sets together you get an extra 2 cards.
The extra card for Hyper Colosseum features the artwork of the four 02 Digimon from inside the sleeve.
The extra card for Carddass features all the new Kizuna Carddass artwork.

You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
The Bandai Premium store has also chosen to affiliate themselves/recommend a few potential shops to be used as intermediaries for non-Japanese buyers:
From Japan (this From Japan link shows various items that they waive commission fees for.)
You'll want to provide your chosen intermediary with the link to the item. Just copy paste the link to the product pages for what you want and send them a message about it and they'll take care of it after they discuss pricing and their policies with you. The links embedded in the news article for the products are exactly what you'll need to send them.
Some of the intermediaries have a full storefront and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.
