Over the last couple of weeks, we have had a number of reveals from the upcoming EX set, Digital Hazard. Unlike the Classic Collection EX set, the cards will focus on the Digimon Tamers anime as well as the antagonist of that series, D-Reaper. Overall, the artwork of this set is fantastic and introduces several well welcomed Digimon into the TCG. In this article, we share with you just a handful of the cards we are most looking forward to collecting.
Our favourite newcomers –
Introducing IceDevimon, Cyberdramon and Strikedramon into the Digimon TCG for the first time, the artists of each card have done a great job for their debut. In the Tamers series, IceDevimon is one of the villains who stalked Rika Nonaka believing that she was as harsh and cruel as himself. Cyberdramon is the final Ultimate form of Ryo Akiyama’s companion while Strikedramon is Cyberdramon’s Champion form which appeared in the Digimon Tamers: Brave Tamer video game.
Low-Level Digimon –
These three Digimon won’t be strangers to fans of the Tamers anime series. This will be the second Renamon card to enter the Digimon TCG, with the first one coming with the Battle of Omni booster set. This one is arguably better, with a fantastic search ability that will work with other cards coming with EX-02 Digital Hazard. You may have noticed that Calumon doesn’t have a level stated, which is a detailed added for continuity, as the cute Digimon is shrouded in mystery.
Digi-Egg / Digitama –
The Digitama of any set are adorable, but with EX-02: Digital Hazard, they reach a whole new level. Pokomon can be seen snuggling up with Kyubimon, Gigimon is getting his fill of juicy apples and Hopmon, who is Cyberdramon’s In-Training form, is seen hanging around a junkyard following the defeat of D-Reaper.
The SRs – Leomon, Gallantmon & Justimon: Blitz Arm
The Leomon SR is one of the best artworks we have seen in a long time, with the depth and detail of the artwork looking intense. This card will be useful in play, as it becomes Blocker if you have a Tamer in play and also allows you to gain memory and draw a card. Justimon was the result of Ryo Akiyama and his Digimon partner biomerging together to face D-Reaper. Justimon has two other fighting modes, Critical Arm and Accel Arm, which will most likely make an appearance in the Digimon Card Game at some point in the future.
Option Cards –
The first two Option cards to be revealed were ’Attack Plug-In A’ and ‘Ultimate Evolution Plug-In S’, which are a nice throwback to the Digimon Tamers series, using the same artwork as the Digi-Modify cards from the anime. Jyuuouken is the first none Plug-In Option card that Bandai has shared for the EX-02: Digital Hazard, showing Leomon’s iconic attack, also known as True Beast-King Fist.
EX-02 Digital Hazard is made up of 74 types of Cards – 26 Common, 20 Uncommon,18 Rare,8 SR and 2 SEC. Bandai has also shared that EX-02 Digital Hazard will have 30 different alternate arts in the set. EX-02 Digital Hazard will release on December 24th for the Japanese game, while the first EX set, the Classic Collection, will release in December for Europe, Oceania and Latin America. Unfortunately, those in North America will have to wait a little longer, as distribution delays have pushed their release date back to January.
