Yugioh creates new rarity type for 25th anniversary

Yugioh is releasing a 25th Anniversary legendary collection featuring a load of iconic cards and sets, and a new rarity type, the Quarter Century Secret Rare

Yugioh TCG Legendary Collection box

It seems like all the big TCGs are having birthday parties right now. To mark its 25th year of existence, Yugioh has announced it’s releasing a new Legendary Collection: 25th Anniversary Edition that contains six packs and six Ultra Rare cards. According to the Yugioh website, it also contains “a sneak peek” at a new rarity type, the ‘Quarter Century Secret Rare’, apparently created just for the game’s 25th anniversary. The set is planned for release on April 21, 2023, and will retail at $31.99.

The packs within the collection are the first six booster packs ever released for the game, from Legend of Blue-Eyes White Dragon all the way to Invasion of Chaos, while the additional guaranteed cards include the three Egyptian god cards, Blue-Eyes himself, and Dark Magician.

There’ll also be a bonus extra version of one of the cards in each box – a new ‘Quarter Century Secret Rare’ version of the card. Apparently, this is a “brand-new rarity created just for the 25th anniversary celebrations”.

  • One Legend of Blue-Eyes White Dragon pack
  • One Metal Raiders pack
  • One Spell Ruler pack

The set will be available next April, a few weeks after the 250th Yugioh Championship Series, which will be held on April 1-2, 2023 in Europe.
