Konami announces reprint of first Yu-Gi-Oh! card sets

Konami has announced that it would reprint some of the earliest Yu-Gi-Oh! sets ever issued, as well as bring back a popular product and create a brand-new unique rarity. When Yu-Gi-Oh made its debut in the early 2000s, it brought with it some of the game’s most famous and unforgettable cards, such as Dark Magician and Pot of Greed. With promotional goods re-releasing old cards and new cards supporting previous archetypes, Konami has regularly inserted nods to the game’s early days. Konami is now re-releasing some of the game’s most legendary cards from its more than 20-year history.

Yu-Gi-Oh! has had a busy year in 2022, with important innovations in both the actual card game and the video games. Throughout the year, the card game has seen numerous strong and game-changing new strategies developed, as well as iconic cards like “Change of Heart” and “Yata-Garasu” being unbanned after more than a decade. Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel was a huge success for Konami, shattering Steam records and garnering tens of millions of downloads. For the game’s 25th anniversary, Konami is paying respect to its origins.
