Bermuda △ Starter Deck Confirmed

Release Date: 3/18
A new Cardfight!! Vanguard starter deck has been released; this one however, has a more complicated story behind its creation than most VG products.
Rather than being the unannounced TD07, the new Bermuda Triangle deck spotlighting Sendou Emi is an original creation of the card shop, Card Kingdom. Listed as VG-CK(VanGuard-CardKingdom), the new deck does in fact appear to be a licensed product. Much like the GameStop exclusives seen on the western side of the video game industry, VG-CK is a Card Kingdom exclusive.

Although a complete decklist is unavailable at this time, the following fifteen cards were seen in a video tutorial CK uploaded on the deck;

Grade 0
x1 Bermuda Triangle Cadet, Shizuku
x1 Drive Quartet, Shuplu CT
x2 Drive Quartet, Bubblin DT
x1 Drive Quartet, Flows HT
Grade 1
x1 Turquoise Blue, Tyrrhenian
x1 Navy Dolphin, Ameer
x1 Mermaid Idol, Sedna
Grade 2
x1 Snow White of the Corals, Claire
x1 Diva of the Clear Seas, Izumi
x1 Intelli Idol, Melville
Grade 3
x2 Velvet Voice, Raindear
x1 Rainbow Light, Carine
x1 Top Idol, Flores

Update: Bushiroad has confirmed on their blog that while the cards sold in the deck are official, the packaged deck was composed entirely by Card Kingdom. The mockup seen above was done to promote the deck, which when sold, comes packaged in a plastic shrink wrap or case rather than a full box. This mockup was made possible by personal ties between the CEO of Card Kingdom, Mr. Ikeda and Bushiroad's CEO, Mr. Kidani.
