The next expansion for Jasco’s Universal Fight System (UFS) will be based on the anime Yu Yu Hakusho, the company announced. The anime follows the exploits of Spirit Detective Yusuke Urameshi as he protects the human world from the demons and spirits from the underworld.
UFS: Yu Yu Hakusho will contain 81 cards of different rarities. While card details are limited at the moment, the set is said to feature the characters of Yusuke Urameshi, Kasuma Kuwabara, Kurama, Hiei, Botan, Byakko, Suzaku, and Rando.
MSRP and release date have not been announced at this time.
Yu Yu Hakusho is a venerable property which first appeared in the U.S. in 2001 via FUNimation (see “FUNimation Seeks Follow-Up to DBZ”), and quickly made its way onto Cartoon Network (see “New Anime Series on Cartoon Network”). It was a big hit both in Japan and in the U.S., and was the basis for a TCG from Score in the early 00s (see “Score Plans Two-Prong Push for Yu-Yu CCG”).
Jasco released UFS: Street Fighter vs. Darkstalkers late last year (see “’Street Fighter Vs. Darkstalkers’ Comes to ‘UFS’”, and Seventh Cross and SoulCalibur VI earlier this year.
