Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME : Change in on sale date
Friday August 03, 2012
Thank you for your support of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME and for helping to get the game into the Guiness Book of World Records as the best-selling trading card game of all time!
We wanted to share great news with our retail, hobby, distribution and Official Tournament Store partners.
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. will move their on sale dates to Friday. The new policy will take affect with the Abyss Rising booster set now releasing November 9 and will apply to all future releases. The change is to allow players more of an opportunity to purchase and to play new Yu-Gi-Oh! products right away, increasing their enjoyment of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. Under the current on sale day of Tuesday, many consumers with busy weekday obligations had to wait until the weekend to play.
The new policy has been met with great success with Konamiís business partners and players in Japan.
The move also brings a global alignment with the companyís Yu-Gi-oh! TRADING CARD GAME release dates.
