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”.
Here’s the full list of contents, just to make everything crystal clear. First, packs:
- One Legend of Blue-Eyes White Dragon pack
- One Metal Raiders pack
- One Spell Ruler pack
- One Pharaoh’s Servant pack
- One Dark Crisis pack
- One Invasion of Chaos pack
Now here are the bonus cards:
- An Ultra Rare Obelisk the Tormentor card
- An Ultra Rare Slifer the Sky Dragon card
- An Ultra Rare The Winged Dragon of Ra card
- An Ultra Rare Blue-Eyes White Dragon card
- An Ultra Rare Dark Magician card
- An Ultra Rare Red-Eyes Black Dragon card
- A Quarter Century Secret Rare version of one of the above cards
It’s basically a re-release of the very first Legendary Collection box, which came out in 2010 – but with the addition of this seventh ‘Quarter Century Secret Rare’ card. 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.
