El Segundo, CA (January 27, 2011) – Ragnarok, an ancient word passed down through the ages, tells of a time when the end of civilization is thought to be near. Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (Konami) channels this ancient belief to inspire a new age in Dueling for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) with the highly-anticipated release of the Storm of Ragnarok booster set.
According to lore, as the feared Ragnarok nears, The Aesir, Odin, Thor and Loki descend upon the Dueling world, joined by their massively powerful monsters and battle-tested warriors from the north to turn back the approaching apocalypse.
Storm of Ragnarok (MSRP $3.99 per nine card pack) will arrive with the strength of gale force winds on store shelves nationwide February 8th. Storm of Ragnarok is one of the most powerful booster sets released by Konami in recent years and will sweep away Duelists who cannot adapt to the changing times.
