Cowboy Bebop joins UFS

The outer space bounty hunters of Cowboy Bebop will be the focus of a new expansion set for Jasco Games’ Ultimate Fighting System multi-genre collectible card game, releasing in November. A reprint set of popular characters, the Capcom Platinum Series will also release next month.
Based on the hit anime series, the Cowboy Bebop Collectible Card Game features all the cards players need to build decks featuring characters like Spike and Vicious and pit them against each other or other UFS fighters from other card sets. Cowboy Bebop will be available both as booster packs or in a 2-player Turbo Box:

 

The Cowboy Bebop Collectible Card Game Spike vs. Vicious 2-Player Turbo Box includes two complete pre-constructed decks, each with 41 cards, plus a pair of random Ultra Rare cards from the Cowboy Bebop set. This 84-card boxed set is MSRP $24.99 and includes everything two players need to play the game.
Booster Displays of the Cowboy Bebop Collectible Card Game will come with 24 10-card booster packs. MSRP is $3.99 per booster. Players need at least one UFS starter deck or turbo deck to use this expansion.

Jasco will support the release with two different Cowboy Bebop Collectible Card Game kits for stores that want to host events that coincide with the release of the new expansion. Both kits include four exclusive Cowboy Bebop playmats and two each of 10 full-art character cards from the expansion. The Pre-Release Kit option also comes with eight booster displays, while the Release Kit also includes six booster displays and eight turbo boxes.

Fans of earlier UFS releases can get a boost with the Capcom Platinum Series Booster Display. The 24 10-card packs in this display feature cards from earlier UFS releases, including the Mega Man Tins, Darkstalkers Tins, Mega Man: Rise of the Masters, and Darkstalkers: Warriors of the Night (see “New ‘Mega Man’ and ‘Darkstalkers’ ‘UFS’ Releases”). All of the cards in this set are printed with new card frames and feature foil paper. MSRP is $5.99 per booster.
Jasco acquired a license for Cowboy Bebop games in 2015 (see “Jasco Games Acquires ‘Dragon Ball Z,’ ‘Cowboy Bebop’”).

UFS Platinum Spoilers

Starting later this year, Jasco Games will be releasing a whole new take on some of our older standard legal sets in UFS. UFS Platinum is a series of sets starting with Mega Man Platinum and Darkstalkers Platinum, that are intended to not only help newer players get hard to find older cards, but also incorporate a whole new type of tournament prize support for your local events! Starting with Mega Man Platinum, we will be re-releasing EVERY card from Mega Man including promo cards that were printed prior to Mega Man Battle for Power.

Every card in this set is not only re-printed, but is 100% foil with completely new foil patterns that have never before been seen in previous sets. Each platinum pack comes with 30 foil cards from the entire Mega Man franchise mentioned above as well as 2 completely unique cards that come in each of the Mega Man Platinum boxes (total of 32 foil cards per box). These boxes are intended as prize support for your local tournaments, and will also be available for individual sale. After Mega Man Platinum comes Darkstalkers Platinum which has the same formula and also 2 exclusive cards that are new to the UFS Standard environment (but may be something familiar to our veteran players). We will be showcasing some of these new platinum cards at worlds 2017 so be sure to check them out!
