Konami Digital Entertainment has announced the 20th anniversary commemoration project of “Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game” celebrating the 20th anniversary in 2019.
“Yu-Gi-Oh Official Card Game” began selling from Konami Digital Entertainment in 1999 and has delivered fun of trading card games to so many users for about 20 years. Currently, it is available in 75 countries in 9 languages, mainly in Japan, North America, Europe, and it is enjoyed by users all over the world.
Following are some of the planned releases and excitement ahead.
Production of pure gold & sterling silver “Blue Eyes White Dragon” card
As a Yu-Gi-Oh! player, we all know what the Blue Eyes White Dragon represents. It is Kaiba Seto’s favourite card and like the Dark Magician, it represents the Yu-Gi-Oh! Card game. Konami is planning to re-release this card in both pure 24k gold and sterling silver. It is estimated that the sterling silver version will be worth more than the pure gold one. However, no official news on how to obtain the item is released yet, so keep an eye to this space if you’re looking to get one (heads up, when Pokemon announced its pure 24k original Pikachu card, it had a price of 200,000 yen on it, which is roughly $2,408.49 Australian Dollars, so you won’t be expecting any less for the Blue Eyes with gold price going up each day).
The “Starter Deck” scheduled to be released on Saturday, March 24, will be accompanied by a 20th anniversary token card (6 types in total) in the first run production.
About 30 kinds of original rare cards, which back in the days, cards such as the “Female Swordsman Canaan” and “Blue Eyes White Dragon (Chinese version)” were very hard to get (given out in events only and in limited numbers).
A 20th Anniversary Edition has been released which re-introduced popular cards.
Ultra strong new cards has been added to the series, which includes holographic rare, extra secret rare, secret rare, collector’s rare, ultimate rare, ultra rare, super rare as rare specifications.
