Square Enix and Hobby Japan are launching a Final Fantasy Trading Card game this month with 162 standard cards to collect. That number does not include promotional cards like the Aya Brea card packed inside The 3rd Birthday, bonus Tifa card from Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy, and Squall card from V-Jump.
Let’s take a look at some of the regular cards and the elements they’re assigned to.
You can see more cards on the official site. Artwork for the cards are from Final Fantasy II (a few heroes), III, VII, X, XIII, Tactics, and Dissidia. Why not say Final Fantasy VI or IX? Square Enix needs to save some games for future sets. Players can pick up a White deck with Cosmos or a Black deck with Chaos to get started for 1,500 yen ($18). Each entry pack has 50 cards plus either Chaos or Cosmos. Booster packs with eight random cards are 330 yen ($4).
