We do know a bit more about this Dragon Ball Super Card Game set that we can share, which may give some insight as to what players and collectors alike can expect from Saiyan Showdown:

  • 292 Types Total
    • 30 commons (60 in total including foil versions)
    • 19 Uncommon (38 in total including foil versions)
    • 15 Rare (60 in total including foil versions)
    • 23 Super Rare
    • 9 Special Rare
    • 4Secret Rare
  • The set will include Goku, Gohan, and Goten doing the Family Kamehameha, which was used in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Broly – Second Coming. This, along with the image of the non-canon Broly from the Z films, seems to confirm this film as a major focus.
  • We can guess at other focuses of Saiyan Showdown from the artwork Bandai has shown off:
    • Raditz and early Vegeta as villains hint at a Saiyan Saga focus.
    • Turles' presence seems to confirm a Tree of Might focus.
    • Kefla? Looks like we have some Tournament of Power action.

Stay tuned for more reports on this exciting new set of the Dragon Ball Super Card Game.
