Yu-Gi-Oh! World Superstars Now On Sale!


On tour for the first time ever, the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME is proud to present – the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Superstars!

This all-foil set collects 50 cards previously available only in Japan and Korea, now available for the first time all over the world! With dozens of new cards from the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL era, Duelists can boost the power of their Xyz Monsters like never before, with new Chronomaly, Star Seraph, Heroic Challenger, Gagaga, and Galaxy cards.

Tired of counting up all those Xyz Monsters? Fear not! Duelists can also get their hands on new anti-Xyz weapons. Try protecting your Pendulum cards with Pendulum Impenetrable, or bouncing all the “Number” monsters back to the Extra Deck with Numeral Hunter!

To top it all off, the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Superstars contains a special treat for collectors. Every year, eight finalists at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship win special prize cards created especially for that event. Included in this set are reprints of both prize cards from the 2012 World Championship in Tokyo: Legendary Dragon of White and Legendary Magician of Dark! These cards are too powerful to allow in regular play, but give a modern Xyz spin to two famous monsters from the dawn of Dueling, and make a great addition to any Duelist’s card collection!

Each 5-card pack contains 4 Super Rares and 1 prismatic Secret Rare (a special version of Secret Rare not seen in many years).

The World Superstars booster set contains 52 cards:

34 Super Rares
18 prismatic Secret Rares
