News: Monthly Bushiroad Volume 16 Reveals Alfred Promo, Cards Reprinted for G-Regulation Format
Shining Swordsman first began serialization in Monthly Bushiroad's first issue last year, and the compilation of its chapters represents a major milestone for the manga. The promo print will be valid for use with Alfred's revival legion, King of Knights' Vanguard Ezzell. Notably, its printing will make Ezzell valid for play in one of Bushiroad's recently announced alternate formats "G Regulation," which only allows cards printed from the Cardfight!! Vanguard G format onwards. Recently introduced as a format more friendly to beginners, while it is currently being treated much as Extreme Fight Rules are, the prospect of set rotation is being approached cautiously by veterans of the TCG. As all of the revival legions are also having their mates reprinted at Comiket 87, this could be seen as setting the stage for making the G-onwards format Bushiroad's primary one.
