We'd like to share information on two new FFTCG products coming towards the end of this year: a new Custom Starter Set featuring FINAL FANTASY XIII, and a new Booster Pack set "From Nightmares", which will feature characters from fan favorite titles like FINAL FANTASY VII: Advent Children and FINAL FANTASY VI! Please note that everything we're sharing is for products still in development, so information and images are all subject to change from the final product. Continue on to take a look:
FINAL FANTASY TRADING CARD GAME: CUSTOM STARTER SET
FINAL FANTASY XIII
■Expected Release Date
February 17, 2023
Preconstructed Deck: 50 cards
Cards for Customization: 50 cards
Quick Start Guide: 1
Deck Customization Guide: 1
“Custom Starter Set FINAL FANTASY XIII” is the second release in the “Custom Starter Set” series, which includes one 50-card deck, along with 50 customization cards for players to experience the fun of customizing their own deck.
By simply replacing the Fire or Lightning element cards within the Starter deck (24 Fire, 24 Lightning, 2 Light element cards), with the 24 Ice element cards included in the customization cards, you can easily transform the deck into a “Fire/Ice” deck or an “Ice/Lightning” deck. Also, there are 26 freely interchangeable cards, allowing players to create an original custom deck of their own.
Unlike the “Two Player Starter Set”, the “Custom Starter Set” contains only 1 deck. However, it allows players to experience the fun of deck building for the first time, which can be a hurdle for many beginners.
Among the 100 cards included in the deck and customization cards, there are 30 total new Starter cards (3 cards each of 10 different cards). For the Starter card Lightning [19-138S], one of the cards will be a Full Art Premium Foil card.
FINAL FANTASY TRADING CARD GAME Booster Pack: From Nightmares
■Expected Release Date
March 24, 2023
■ Card Count
Normal: 128 cards
Premium: 164 cards (of these, 24 are full art cards, 1 is a special card and 1 is a crystal card)
A Special version of a Full Art Foil Cloud [19-114L] is included as a Special Card, featuring a foil stamp of Tetsuya Nomura’s autograph (and usable in the same way as a Standard card).
Additionally, one full art premium Yuna [19-118L] will be included with each box as a Buy-a-Box Promo.
Continuing from “Resurgence of Power”, this booster pack will also feature Multi-Element cards and bring diversity into deck building and game strategies. This set will also feature a Multi-Element card with 4 elements, creating new possibilities for Multi-Element cards, which only had 2 elements until now. Please enjoy the cards with new art, and the ever-growing world of “FFTCG”!
