The firm has declared that it is business as usual for Upper Deck International BV with outside events for the trading card game (TCG) operating as scheduled.
As the Upper Deck International BV (UDI) head office is situated in The Netherlands, the recent injunction against Konami was filed in a Dutch court, with a separate injunction against Konami in an American court regarding the North American Yu-Gi-Oh! territory.
Following the successful outcome of the injunction against Konami, in which the Dutch court decided in favor of Upper Deck Panoceanic CV and Upper Deck International BV, UDI will launch expansions and events as planned across all territories that UDI is currently distributing Yu-Gi-Oh! in.
This means that the new lines Duelist Pack – Yusei (DP8) will be released on February 24th and Crimson Crisis Booster on March 3rd.
A sneak preview event for Crimson Crisis will be held on February 28th and March 1st.
“Thanks for your continuous support. It is highly appreciated! We will continue to provide you with the best possible support for Organized Play, as you are accustomed and entitled to,” said Nico Blauw, CEO Upper Deck International.
