It feels like a whole generation has grown up since we last saw the Digital monsters animated on our screens. Just recently my daughter was glued to an episode on Netflix with me mouthing the words to the tune.
Today Ban Dai has rereleased Digimon on TV in the US as Digimon Fusion! This started on Nickelodeon in September with 79 episodes. Older, Series 1, episodes have been playing since June on Nicktoons. With the power of a very popular TV series on major network viewing and Ban Dai’s strength of developing very strong brands, it makes sense to launch a new TCG for the game. In January 2014 Ban Dai will bring us the Digimon Fusion TCG with two, 40-card, Starter Decks and 10-card Boosters.
To appeal more to the target audience of young males, Ban Dai is also releasing action toys for the Digimon as well.
In Digimon the TCG, players control powerful Digimon like MetalGreymon, Blastmon and Shoutmon as they battle for control of Code Crowns, which is how they decide who is victorious.
