Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME BATTLE PACK 3: MONSTER LEAGUE KICKS-OFF NEW DRAFT SEASON

El Segundo, CA - July 16, 2014Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) - As the summer tournament season slips into high gear, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI) unleashes its latest Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) booster in the Battle Pack Series, the all-new Battle Pack 3: Monster League. KONAMI has corralled a slew of monsters into one powerful booster - this massive 237-card Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) set releases in stores nationwide on August 1st, 2014.

Monster League brings together a ton of surprising Monsters, Spells, and Traps to challenge a player's drafting ability, Deck-building skills, and Dueling savviness. KONAMI has specifically designed Battle Pack 3: Monster League for sealed pack play between two or more friends or for booster draft play.

Battle Pack 3: Monster League - Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) booster set

To support this, Monster League includes ten new battle-oriented cards (two new Monsters, two new Spells, and six new Traps) designed for sealed and draft play and it has a Special Tournament Rule - all Monsters are all Types. Whether in a player's Deck, extra Deck, hand, Graveyard, field, or banished, all Monsters are treated as every Monster type. The Monsters have put aside their differences, and united in one big Monster League! So, Duelists can expect to see combinations and strategies that wouldn't work otherwise, and get to play with many cards not normally seen.
Battle Pack 3: Monster League Display Box
Special cards have been a mainstay of the Battle Pack Series as Battle Pack: Epic Dawn included Starfoil Cards and Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants had Mosaic Rares. Not to be outdone, Battle Pack 3: Monster League has cool Shatterfoils!

These shattered-glass style cards use the same technology first seen in later Duel Terminal sets. All 237 cards in the set can be had as Shatterfoils. Each five-card pack (MSRP $1.99) contains three Common, one Rare, and one Shatterfoil card.

The entire 237-card Battle Pack 3: Monster League set contains:

All New Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie in Development
Posted Thursday, 6/19/2014 by PPNSteve

NEW YORK - 4K Media announces a new Yu-Gi-Oh! movie currently in development in Japan.

This week, the Licensing Expo kicked off on June 17, and the company is currently shopping for a distributor for all territories outside of Asia.New Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie in Development

As fans and retailers alike enjoy the resurgence of popular anime brand Yu-Gi-Oh!, the characters from the animated series and trading card game are heading back to the big screen in a new movie.

While there is no set release date for the film, 4K Media has confirmed that the movie is now in development.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! series is currently in its 14th consecutive year of broadcast in the U.S. and most major markets worldwide.

The series and brand continue to captivate children, particularly boys, through its best-selling trading card game, animated series and motion picture releases.

"We're thrilled to bring the Yu-Gi-Oh! characters back to theater screens for their enthusiastic fan base," said Kristen Gray, senior vice president operations, business and legal affairs, 4K Media. "It's a major piece in the robust resurgence of the brand that will have significant implications moving forward."

In 2004, Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie premiered in the U.S., followed by the Japanese film Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time in 2010 in honor of its 10th anniversary.

The series is enjoying a major brand resurgence, with 4K Media signing new licensees earlier this year for a Yu-Gi-Oh! housewares line in North America.

Along with new licensees, 4K Media announced last year that it was bringing the hit series back to North America. 4K Media and Cinedigm launched the home entertainment program last year, with plans to release all 600 episodes of the series in the US and Canada, on DVD, digital and VOD platforms. The first DVD release, Yu-Gi-Oh! Classic Season 1 Boxset, is set to launch in September 2014.
