Six of the cards featured in the very first Yu-Gi-Oh! series will be available for the first time outside of Asia with their original “lost” artwork. thanks to Konami’s Lost Art Promotion, launching in February.
During the promotion, players who spend at least $30 on any Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG products at Official Tournament Stores can receive a free “lost art” promo card, while supplies last. Each month, starting in February, a different lost art promo card will be available. The cards included in the promotion will be Monster Reborn, Exodia the Forbidden One, Left Arm of the Forbidden One, Right Arm of the Forbidden One, Left Leg of the Forbidden One, and Right Leg of the Forbidden One.
The six cards included in the promo were all part of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game release in Asia back in 1999, before the game was available in North America. They were inspired by cards used by Yugi himself during the first animated series. The artwork used on these cards in Asia was not used in other countries, and this will be the first time that the original Asian art has been made available to the rest of the world.
Konami has already announced a number of new Yu-Gi-Oh! products that will release during the period covered by the Lost Art Promotion
