Bandai has announced a deck building tool on their Japanese Digimon TCG website, which will allow players to create and share decklists, as well as some other nice features that will be a helpful tool in the competitive scene.
In the DBS CG, Bandai’s other main TCG, players have developed their own unofficial deck building websites where they can search other decks made by members of the community, as well as create their own combinations. Although there are similar tools for the Digimon TCG, it seems that Bandai want to make sure that any activity regarding their game is kept on an official source.
The app will be called ‘Digimon TCG: My Deck System’ and will have easy to navigate search systems and stats to help you create and balance decks. A really interesting addition is the ‘hand simulation’ feature that randomly creates a hand so that you can see the odds of drawing certain cards.
Although information is incredibly limited right now, we can see from the screenshots that you can search cards by checking filter boxes – including card colour, type, cost and set. The deck building tool will also flag up any issues, such as too many versions of the same card or not enough cards to make up a deck. The lookup feature will allow people to make lists of cards they want for their collection or simply browse the extensive Digimon TCG library.
Bandai developing this kind of app is extremely interesting, as it shows their willingness to implement online-based features. Could this mean that players will eventually get an online client for the game in the same style of the tutorial app? With the Digimon TCG still being young, being less than a year old, it wouldn’t take too long to implement the current card library and the new mechanics.
Bandai’s Digimon TCG deck building tool will first launch for the Japanese game and will be available for the English version a little later. The release date is yet to be disclosed by Bandai, although it does say it will be “released soon” on their website.
