The first details of a new booster set, which will arrive in the Japanese version of the Digimon TCG before the English, have been revealed. Although the early information is incredibly scarce, it does offer a sneak peek into what we can expect going into 2022.
In the English version of the Digimon TCG, we are still waiting for the Next Adventure set to release, while New Hero releases next week in Japan. In true Bandai fashion, the company are now getting ready to promote and share details of a future set, only this time it seems like the focus will shift to the X-Antibody Digimon.
What are X-Antibody Digimon?
For those of you who have not seen all of the Digimon movies or read all of the manga, the X-Antibody Digimon appeared in Digital Monster X-Evolution, Digimon Chronicle, Digimon Chronicle X and Digimon D-Cyber. In these stories, X-Antibody is a vaccine that makes a Digimon immune to the X-Program, which is designed to delete all Digimon. Those who can resist deletion due to the X-Antibody become altered yet more powerful forms of their original counterparts.
Digimon we would like to see –
There are many X-Antibody Digimon that could make an appearance in this set, with some that have already made an appearance in the Digimon TCG such as Omnimon X-Antibody from the Battle of Omni booster set. Although there are many Digimon to choose from, the ones we most hope to see in X-Record would be Angewoman X-Antibody, Diaboromon X-Antibody, MetalGreymon X-Antibody and Jesmon X-Antibody.
This early information was shared by an online Japanese store that has begun taking pre-orders for the set. BT-9: X-Record is expected to release on February 25th 2022 in Japan, with the English version coming a few months after that. It is likely to have 112 card types in total, which is the same amount of cards as other large booster sets.
