JAPANESE ALTERNATE-ART PLANESWALKERS

War of the Spark is all about Planeswalkers. With 36 different characters represented, the set truly showcases an all-out war for the fate of the Multiverse being fought on Ravnica.

We wanted to do something special to commemorate this event in Japan, so we worked with Japanese artists to create alternate-art versions of every planeswalker in the set. All 36 planeswalkers in War of the Spark were reimagined beautifully by artists well-known throughout Japan, including Yoshitaka Amano!

These alternate versions appear randomly in Japanese-language War of the Spark boosters, replacing the regular version of the planeswalker in the pack 50% of the time. We’ve made Japanese boosters available to retailers around the world, so you can find them nearby wherever you live.

These cards will also be available in Wizards Play Network promo packs during the Core Set 2020 play season, appearing in roughly 1:4 of packs. The alternate-art planeswalkers have only been printed in Japanese, but will appear in promo packs around the world.

Jasco Games, in partnership with Level 99 Games, is excited to announce the next license to be included in the Universal Fighting System CCG: Seventh Cross! – Releasing May 24!

After taking the delayed release of SoulCalibur VI into consideration, we have decided to push back the release of Seventh Cross two weeks from May 10 to May 24, to better pace the 2019 UFS release schedule and not put the pressure of immediate back-to-back releases on the UFS community.

Seventh Cross is an 88 card booster-only expansion set with a few surprises in store that will give UFS players new options and strategies to utilize and combat.  Stay tuned next week for important Pre-Order information and the beginning of the Seventh Cross Set Preview!

The year is 1929, in a world much like our own…

An enigmatic organization known only as “The Church” has kept the world safe from magic and monsters for centuries, allowing culture and civilization to flourish.

In the shadows, an ancient magic empire stirs, seeking to revive the lost craft and unleash mayhem once again upon humanity.

Powerful Church Inquisitors seek out monsters and put them down in the name of order and duty using a vast array of mystical arcana, bizarre machines, and medieval implements, sometimes even unleashing their own monstrous nature to gain new abilities and turn the tide of battle in their favor.

The Seventh Cross CCG includes the following playable characters, each with their own monstrous 2nd form:

  • Celinka
  • D’Janette
  • Eugenia
  • Geoffrey
  • Remiliss
  • Taisei
  • Tournelouse
  • Zsolt
