Today June 12, 2014 gaming company Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced that their upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! release Super Starter: Space-Time Showdown will hit stores on July 11, 2014. Super Starter: Space-Time Showdown is a preconstructed deck meant for both new and experienced players. This full 40-card deck boasts a first look at one of the game's latest mechanics: Pendulum Monsters.
Pendulum Monsters are a cross between normal monsters and spells. They "can be summoned as regular Monster cards to attack or defend, and can also be activated as Spell Cards in new Pendulum Zones to activate extra special abilities and allow Duelists to Pendulum Summon."
Super Starter: Space-Time Showdown will be the only place players can obtain a Pendulum Monster before this year's August release Duelist Alliance.
In addition to the full 40-card deck, Super Starter: Space-Time Showdown also comes with two Power-Up Packs, which boast five cards from a 15-card set with two guaranteed Ultra Rare cards: Dark Hole and Odd-Eyes Dragon.
Super Starter: Space-Time Showdown also features a Game Mat and beginner's guide, and will be available for $12.99.
Konami is also releasing another Yu-Gi-Oh! product on July 11, 2014: The Space-Time Showdown Power Box. The Power Box boasts Super Starter: Space-Time Showdown, along with another Power-Up Pack and high quality rubber Game Mat which features the brand new Pendulum Zones. It'll be available for $19.99.
