Bandai Announces Rockman X Giga Mission: New Cards, New Story Between X5/X6
Bandai have announced Rockman X Giga Mission, a brand-new trading card series that succeeds 2018's highly successful Rockman X 25th Anniversary Memorial Carddass set.
Due to release in August, the Rockman X Giga Mission box set includes 24 all-new cards designed by Yoshihiro Iwamoto, an exclusive 10-page manga (by Iwamoto) that tells an "untold" story between Rockman X5 and Rockman X6 featuring new characters, mechs and armor, and a clear file to safely store the cards in a binder.
Additionally, Bandai will be holding a contest to design a special Giga Mission armor for Zero (Japan only). The winning design will be turned into a real trading card, illustrated by Iwamoto himself. In case you forgot, this was the winning design from last year's contest.
Pre-orders for the Rockman X Giga Mission box set are now available exclusively through Premium Bandai. There are no current plans for an English release, so you'll have to get a little creative to obtain this one. Premium Bandai don't ship internationally; you're best bet might be to wait for it show up on Yahoo! Auctions and grab it via proxy.
