Hidden Arsenal Special Edition Details Announced!!
Published alongside the regular 100-card booster sets, 60-card Hidden Arsenal sets are entirely made of foil cards, and most are entirely made up of Monster Cards! Hidden Arsenal booster sets have also brought us some of the most exciting monsters and Decks that we’ve ever seen, including X-Sabers, Naturia, and Ice Barrier monsters.
Now Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. is pleased to confirm a July 26 release date for Hidden Arsenal Special Edition.
Hidden Arsenal sets work great together because the monsters from each monster group are spread across the different sets. When you pick up Hidden Arsenal Special Edition you’ll get 1 pack each of Hidden Arsenal, Hidden Arsenal 2, and Hidden Arsenal 3, plus 1 of 2 special variant cards! Because of the way Hidden Arsenal sets are built, you can easily combine these 3 packs to build groupings of similar monsters.
Each box of Hidden Arsenal Special Edition will include dozens of monsters from Decks like X-Sabers, Dragunity, Naturia, Ice Barrier, Fabled, Allies of Justice, Genex, Worms, and more. You’ll find it very easy to mix and match these monsters together, trade with your friends, and make a fun Deck that’s focused like a laser on the specific monster group YOU want.
In addition to 1 pack from each of the first three Hidden Arsenal sets, each Hidden Arsenal Special Edition box will contain 1 Super Rare variant card: XX-Saber Emmersblade or Naturia Pineapple!
Release the Swarm!
XX-Saber Emmersblade is one of the key cards that made X-Sabers a dominant force in tournaments across the country. Released as a Secret Rare card in Absolute Powerforce, Emmersblades have been few in number but very high in demand, as more and more Duelists have tried to command the mighty X-Sabers for themselves. So to help out with the Emmersblade shortage, we’re re-releasing it in Hidden Arsenal Special Edition!
When Emmersblade is destroyed by battle, you can Special Summon any Level 4 or lower “X-Saber” monster from your Deck. And with so many incredible X-Sabers to choose from, you can guide your strategy in the perfect direction! You can Summon your incredible Tuners like X-Saber Airbellum or XX-Saber Fulhelmknight. Or grab your amazing utility monsters to set up your combo plays, like XX-Saber Darksoul or XX-Saber Ragigura. (Don’t forget that all “XX-Saber” monsters are also “X-Saber” monsters, so you can get either kind!)
The Fruit… It is Delicious
Naturia Pineapple was originally a Secret Rare card in Duelist Revolution. This card works well in a Naturia Deck, since so many Naturia monsters only work with other Naturia monsters. But where Naturia Pineapple really shines is in a general Plant Deck, or a Plant/Beast hybrid Deck.
Naturia Pineapple changes everything you control into a Plant. This gives you flexibility with your cards and effects that only work on Plants. You can put non-Plant monsters in your Deck, and still combo them with your effects since they’ll be Plants while on the field. You can also take control of your opponent’s monsters and convert them into Plants!
But the best thing about Naturia Pineapple is its incredible durability. Just like the popular Treeborn Frog, Pineapple can Special Summon itself back from the Graveyard as long as you control no Spells or Traps. Naturia Pineapple makes a great source of infinite Material for things like Synchro Summoning. You can also keep Tributing it for your high-Level Tribute Summons. And you can continually Tribute it to negate cards and effects in combination with Tytannial, Princess of Camellias (from Gold Series 4: Pyramids Edition). Or you can just keep bringing it back again and again to protect your Life Points!
Special Edition boxes have always given you a great value by combining the hottest booster packs with the greatest variant cards. But there’s never been a more natural combo of packs and variant cards than this! With the huge monster selection in Hidden Arsenal Special Edition, and the variant cards that work flawlessly with those packs, Hidden Arsenal Special Edition is a fantastic way to power up your Deck, or build and exciting new Deck from the ground up!
The suggested retail price (SRP) for Hidden Arsenal Special Edition is $9.99. Hidden Arsenal packs normally have an SRP of $3.99. So how do we take 3 packs with a combined value of almost twelve dollars, and bundle them together for less than ten? AND include an awesome variant card? Card-making elves, that’s how!
