Manga aimed at older readers centers on teen & card in time capsule that can change history

Artist Shinsuke Takahashi and writer Shido Kanzaki have launched their Duel Masters Rev. manga series in this year's 39th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine on Wednesday. There have been several manga inspired by the Duel Masters trading card games, but most have run in Corocoro Comic, a magazine aimed at younger readers, and its spinoffs. This is the first Duel Masters manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday.

The modern fantasy centers around a 15-year-old boy who once was caught up in the Duel Masters craze, but he left the game behind after elementary school. However, a Duel Masters card that he buried in a time capsule is linked to an event that can change the course of human history.

To mark the launch of the new manga series, the latest Weekly Shonen Sunday issue bundles a limited "Forever Princess" card.
