The settlement amount is confidential, but Konami had been seeking between $50 million and $150 million in damages from the firm's US division.

Upper Deck executives refused to answer questions about their involvement in the fraud in court, but as part of the settlement, the company admitted it willfully counterfeited the cards.

Ben Fox, a partner at Morrison & Foerster, which represented Konami said: "Konami's main goal was to have the truth come out, and we're pleased that what happened with the cards has been revealed."
