Asia Circuit Press Conference, New Commercial

Last night Bushiroad's press conference on the second season of Cardfight!! Vanguard was hosted live on the Japanese video website, Nico Nico Dōga. Here's a recap of what was unveiled;

  • The mystery boy from Ren's flashback in ride 57 is a new character, Tatsunagi Takuto (立凪タクト)
  • Takuto is the top of the Tatsunagi financial group, the host of the Asia Circuit.
  • Episode 1 will deal with Aichi and Takuto's first meeting.
  • The first country in the Asia Circuit is Singapore.
  • Katsuragi Kamui, Tokura Misaki, Nitta Shin and Miwa Taishi are all confirmed to be returning in new outfits. Shin will accompany Team Q4 overseas to the Asia Circuit while Miwa and Izaki run Card Capital in his place. Morikawa and Emi will stay behind with the rest of the crew at Card Capital.
  • Ren will be joining the protagonists. Like Aichi, he will use the Gold Paladin clan, however he will use an alternate playstyle, different from Aichi's. Extra Booster 03 will mainly be centered on his playstyle.
  • Ito Akira has created a new artwork for Asia Circuit, which may be released as an official card sleeve.

And now, some information on the upcoming booster sets;

  • On 7/7 Booster 7 will be released, featuring support for Great Nature, Oracle Think Tank and a new clan, Angel Feather. Like the Royal Paladin, Oracle Think Tank, Gold Paladin and Shadow Paladin clans before them, Angel Feather will be a United Sanctuary-based clan. Angel Feather will manipulate the damage zone in ways other than counterblast.
  • A new Gold Paladin promo card has been unveiled, which is either Kungal or Kurngal.
