Konami Digital Entertainment has shared information on the upcoming Savage Strike releases for its Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game, as well as revealing more details on Soul Fusion Special Edition.
Savage Strike will be the first booster of 2019, and it will power up Synchro Summoning strategies for duelists playing that type of deck. Synchro Summoning has already made an appearance in the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! anime VRAINS, and now the first Synchro Monsters will debut in this booster. Cards to power up Zombie Synchro and Neos Decks are also included.
The 100-card booster includes 48 Commons, 20 Rares, 14 Super Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, and 8 Secret Rares. Release is planned for February 1.
Savage Strike Special Edition will include 3 Savage Strike Booster Packs as well as 1 of 2 Super Rare variant cards, and 1 of 2 Super Rare preview cards of non-foil cards from an upcoming booster set. Release is set for March 8.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Soul Fusion Special Edition was announced this summer (see “Fusion Summoning Heats Up with New ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’ Booster”), and as the December 7 release approaches, the company has announced the two Super Rare variant cards which will be in the package. Players will pull either Summon Sorceress or Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights. The two Super Rare preview cards from the upcoming Savage Strike Booster Set will be Prank-Kids Rocksies and Neo Space Connector.
