I’ve written this opening entry a dozen or so times and I still can’t process it. We are going to get straight to the point then.
Today, via their Facebook pages, Jasco Games announced the next expansion to their Universal Fight System (or simply UFS)…
Those that know me personally, or have been following my game writing for a while, know that Score Entertainment’s Yu Yu Hakusho TCG from the early 2000’s was insanely influential to me. The game was the reason I am as big of a fan of trading card games, and collectible games in general. To this day, I will buy the boosters and starters for it, even more than a decade after it stopped being published. For me, the Yu Yu Hakush TCG was the game by which all others were measured (power creep be damned).
Of course, I have no delusions that these will be anything similar. UFS has a rich and rewarding combat system that a property like this was made for. More so than even last year’s Cowboy Bebop set, Yu Yu Hakusho is a series about tournament fighting, hand to hand combat and a magnitude of characters that should offer several rich deck types and builds.
It just makes me beyond happy to know that I’ll be able to buy new cards and experience the new thrill all over again with characters I adore.
So, until next time, keep your dice warm and happy gaming.
