It’s pretty much universally agreed upon that August and September are the Sunday and Monday of Summer. But that was a different time — a time when trading card game Yu-Gi-Oh! didn’t have three, epic launches set to release in those once-dreaded months. 

Power of the Elements is a newly announced 100-card core booster that’s arriving on Aug. 5. Within the deck lies new cards for already-established Yu-Gi-Oh! themes like Element Hero, as well as cards for the new EARTH Fairy and World Premiere themes. Across the 50 Commons, 26 Super Rares, 14 Ultra Rares, and 10 Secret Rares of this card deck, fans can unearth new strategies and summon powerful, never-before-seen fusion monsters. A complete line of Element HERO accessories will also launch alongside the booster set, so fans can arrive at their duel in style. The Power of the Elements booster deck will retail at $4.49 per pack.

Hold on, Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, because things are about to pick up speed. The Speed Duel GX: Duel Academy Box is receiving an expansion with the upcoming Speed Duel: Midterm Paradox Mini Box. Introducing even more cards to the rapid-fire game, this 100-card static set contains four complete decks that are ready to play out of the box. Each mini box is complete with 100 Common Cards, 12 Skill Cards, four (of 12) Secret Rares, and a two-player deluxe game mat, featuring none other than Jade Yuki and Syrus Truesdale. Fans can expect to get their hands on the Midterm Paradox Mini Box on Sept. 2 for $15.99. 

And if we haven’t already convinced you that September is the new July, maybe this will: a tin that grants players with Pharaoh God powers, coming on Sept. 16. This year’s Tin of the Pharaoh’s Gods replicates the top portion of the Tablet of Lost Memories, immortalizing the powerful Yu-Gi-Oh! deities like Sky Dragon, Obelisk the Tormentor, and The Winged Dragon of Ra. Each tin contains 36 Commons, three Prismatic Secret Rares, six Ultra Rares, six Super Rares, and three Rares. For $21.99 fans can wield mighty powers and — if they already own the 2020 and 2021 tins — complete their own tablet.
