It’s time to duel!

Konami Digital Entertainment is delivering all-new strategies to improve your deck in the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game. Between this month and next month, duelists can discover two new booster sets, four accessories, and the latest installment in the Hidden Arsenal series. 

To start, The Grand Creators booster set introduces three new themes, 15 new Collector’s Rares, and a new World Premiere Spell Card for Inzektors. With the first theme, duelists can summon an adventurer in Monster Token form to party up with powerful allies. The new Psychic theme allows players to pay Life Points and unite their monsters to Synchro Summon a Dragon-type boss monster. Last and certainly not least, the Spellcaster sisters can transform into powerful Xyz monsters who bend the laws of life and death in the final theme. The Grand Creators booster set is available starting tomorrow, Jan. 28, for $3.99 per 7-card pack. 

Next, The Battle of Chaos booster set — the first 100-card core booster set of this year — will introduce brand-new cards to support your deck. Duelists can summon old-school Duel Monsters such as Kuriboh, Dark Magician, and the iconic Blue-Eyes White Dragon to banish their opponent’s hand. The set also includes five new cards for Icejade to drop the ATK of enemy monsters, interrupt your opponent’s strategies, and blast opposing monsters. Look out for a new Fusion Monster to Fusion Summon by fusing together three other monsters. The Battle of Chaos set includes 50 Commons, 26 Super Rares, 14 Ultra Rares, and 10 Secret Rares. These cards will be available starting Feb. 11 for $4.19 per 9-card pack. 

New cards mean new accessories! A selection of Kuriboh Kollection accessories is set to arrive on Feb. 11 along with the Battle of Chaos booster set. This collection features fan-favorite Fiends, Kuriboh and Magikuriboh to protect more than just your Life Points. Duelists can keep all of their decks and cards safe with the Kuriboh Kollection Card Case, Kuriboh Kollection Card Sleeves, and the Kuriboh Kollection 9-Pocket Duelist Portfolio. To take their duels to the next level, players can use the Kuriboh Kollection Game Mat as a soft Dueling surface (just as soft as a Kuriboh). With prices starting at $3.99, duelists can get their paws on the Kuriboh Kollection to multiply their defenses and show off their collection. 

After a long eight years since its last installment, players can relive the Hidden Arsenal series from the beginning with Hidden Arsenal: Chapter 1. The original Fabled monsters are back with their fearsome familiars in this new set of cards. The original Duel Terminal prismatic technology has also made a return in both Common and Ultra Rare cards. Every box comes with 28 standard Commons, two Duel Terminal Technology Commons, six Duel Terminal Technology Ultra Rares, one Secret Rare, an exclusive collectible die, and an insert telling the Hidden Arsenal world’s story. Hidden Arsenal: Chapter 1 will be unleashed on Feb. 25 for $14.99 per set.
