El Segundo, CA (September 3, 2009) – Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) fans will be racing to hobby and retail stores nationwide to be the first to uncover many hidden gems in Ancient Prophecy, the latest booster set from Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KDE). Ten never before seen exclusive cards making their world premiere are the cornerstone of this celebrated release.

Ancient Prophecy introduces all new and exciting Spells, Traps and monster cards from all 3 Yu-Gi-Oh!

Cards like “Blackwing - Vayu the Emblem of Honor,” “Revival of the Immortals,” and the latest of the 5 Dragons: Luna's “Ancient Fairy Dragon” make Ancient Prophecy a formidable force for any Duelist smart enough to use its power.

Ancient Prophecy is packed with some of the most powerful exclusive cards ever released, such as “Card Guard” and “Greed Grado.” Plus, it contains eight additional X-Saber cards, including the “XX-Saber Gottoms” Synchro monster.
