Dragon Ball Super Previews Saiyan Showdown: Krillin, Tien, Chiaotzu

The Dragon Ball Super Card Game has begun to preview the cards from the next official expansion. The November 2021 set will be the fifteenth main set and the sixth expansion under the Unison Warrior Series banner. The set will be called Saiyan Showdown (with its full name being Unison Warrior Series BOOST – Saiyan Showdown) and will document some of the anime and manga's best Saiyan vs. Saiyan battles. Focuses of the set include Goku vs. Vegeta from the Saiyan Saga, Gohan vs. Turles from the Dragon Ball Z film Tree of Might, Goku and his sons vs. Broly from the film Broly: Second Coming, and, finally, the Universe 6 Saiyans. As the Dragon Ball Super Card Game shows off the cards from this upcoming expansion, Bleeding Cool will offer a look into the cards from a collector's perspective.

The Yellow section of Dragon Ball Super Card Game's upcoming Saiyan Shodown expansion focuses on Tree of Might, an early Dragon Ball Z film. To me, one of the most fun aspects of the early Zera films is how they include the expanded cast of Z-Warriors. During later storylines, with the Buu Saga being perhaps the greatest offender, we lost touch with some of the original Z-Warriors due to how they'd been outclassed by the Saiyans. However, here, in those halcyon days, we had prominent roles for Tien Shinhan, Chiaotzu, and Krillin to play. It was indeed awesome to see these characters utilized once again during Dragon Ball Super when some of them were brought in to battle during the Tournament of Power. I love, too, that the DBSCG keeps on printing cards of these beloved warriors.

Stay tuned for more previews of Dragon Ball Super Card Game: Unison Warrior Series BOOST – Saiyan Showdown. When the set releases on November 19th, 2021, Bleeding Cool readers can expect openings and product reviews as well.
