The release of Heroes and Villains is rapidly approaching, and excitement is at an all time high. Here’s everything you need to know leading up to launch:
-The official release date is March 6th. This was originally reported as March 4th, but manufacturing delays have moved things back a bit. Please adjust any “at-launch” events accordingly.
-Much like the first release, “at-launch” kits are available stores who pre-ordered product and notified their distributor that they would like to host an event (during March 6th-March 8th). The suggested format is Sealed Deck, with one Premier Set Starter Deck and three Heroes & Villains booster packs.
For these “Rainbow” sealed events, construct any 60-card deck from your Starter/packs with a Mastery and MP. You may ignore Hero/Villain alignment, you may play any Named cards and you may use a Mastery with different Styled cards in your deck. As a general guideline, Swiss rounds will be comprised of “best of 1” games with forty minute time limits. Of course, these guidelines may always be adjusted at the venue’s discretion.
All prizes included in this kit are new to these launch events, and they include: 20x P11 Trunks’ Sword Slash (participation), 2x P12 Stare Down (top player promo), and one new play mat (for the winner).
A full list of locations running launch events will be provided in the near future.
-Orange Truck Lift will be in the hands of distributors early next week, and they will be sent to shops that ordered Starter Decks from the first wave of printing. You can redeem the cards at your local store, and you may want to bring a proof of purchase.
That’s all for now, but be sure to check out more Heroes and Villains previews being rolled out on the following sites:
