(5/14/12) – Konami has two big releases coming this spring for the Yu-Gi-Oh card game. The first is the Battle Pack: Epic Dawn. Battle packs are designed for sealed pack play. Ten are opened at a time and used to create decks. Play this format a few times and you’ll grow a nice sized collection. To protect that collection, Konami is also releasing a set of card sleeves featuring Yugi’s rival Seto Kaiba.
