Last month, we posted about Bandai stealth announcing an Evangelion Card Game expansion/stand alone for their Chrono Clash System card game. They have officially updated their website with details on both products.

We have a look at the official box art for EV-01, which features Shinji Ikari and Rei Ayanami, and EV-02, which features Asuka Shikinami and Kaworu Nagisa:





Bandai also revealed a handful of the game’s cards:

Not much additional information was revealed beyond each box’s contents:

  • 108 cards (each deck contains 54 cards)
  • 12 double-sized cards
  • 2 turn sequence cards
  • 2 play sheets
  • 1 play manual (in multiple languages)

Additionally, we know that the sets are supposed to release in February of next year. If they are like the Naruto/Boruto sets, they should retail for between $34.99 and $39.99 since they are only two decks as opposed to the Godzilla set with four decks.

Personally, that feels like too long of a wait for such a highly anticipated release. One would think that Christmas time would be a perfect time to capitalize on this particular set’s release. After the holidays, so many people are busy with the games they got or recuperating from the money they spent on other people and their games. Then again, maybe I’m just too excited to pilot a Neon Genesis Evangelion deck against a Godzilla deck.

What do you all think? Between Bandai’s Chrono Clash System and Jasco Game’s UniVersus (firmly UFS), lots of anime titles are coming back to the card game table. I don’t know about anyone else, but it feels like the early 2000’s again at my local game store and I personally love.

Let me know what you all think. Is there an anime title you’d like to see represented in either system?

Until next time, keep your dice warm and happy gaming.

So mark this one on the list of things that would be considered unexpected. Bandai will be bringing Neon Genesis Evangelion to the tabletop with the Evangelion Card Game, an expansion to their Chrono Clash System.


It appears this was announced via their site and FaceBook page sometime around the beginning of the month. Talk about a stealth announcement. Neon Genesis Evangelion was thrust back into the spot light recently when Netflix debuted their new dubbing of the classic coming-of-age-mecha anime back in June of this year.

So far, it looks like the set will be done like the Naruto/Boruto Card Game. That means two sets at launch with two decks, as opposed to the Godzilla Card Game that launched with four decks in its core box.

The ad for the game as it appears on the game’s website, seemingly two separate boxes based on the set numbers (EV01 and EV02).

I would be lying if I said this didn’t interest me in the slightest. I was able to get in a game of the Godzilla Card Game late last week and found it rather enjoyable. The game is quick and fast paced, with as deep a layer of strategy as you are willing to dive. The fact that you can pick up a deck of either of the existing games (Naruto/Boruto or Godzilla) and fight against each other is rather reminiscent of Bushiroad’s Weiss Schwarz, which is one of my top ten card games of all time.

I was on the fence about rather to get into the game or not, however. The original announcements/previews leading up to the game’s launch were hit or miss and the game’s presence at Gen Con 2019 left a bit to be desired. Having played it in a less stressful environment, though, I found it enjoyable and a game I wouldn’t mind having a deck of. The only question was which set to jump in with.

I guess this answers that question, uh?

What do you all think? Would there be a bigger or more well renowned franchise that should have gotten the third release slot over Neon Genesis?

Until next time, keep your dice warm and happy gaming.
