News: Creeping Dark Goat to See English Release During WCS2013

Sources at Bushiroad have identified that the highly anticipated Creeping Dark Goat, the second Shadow Paladin first vanguard to be printed since Fullbau in BT04, will see its English release at the World Championship 2013 Free Fight events. These Free Fight side events, similar to those of Worlds 2012, will be held at each regional to allow those not participating in the main tournament and those that have been eliminated to play casual matches for fun. While all of the regional events so far begin at 9:00 AM and end at 6:00 PM, the Free Fight side events will be starting up during the main tournament from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM, coinciding with the point when many cardfighters have been eliminated.

Although FVGs of Creeping Dark Goat's model have frequently been panned for their inaccuracy, CDG has enjoyed special attention among Shadow Paladin cardfighters for being their primary competitive option, as a free boosting unit that is guaranteed is oftentimes more useful than what Fullbau brings to the table. Furthermore, even in Japan where Frontline Revenger Claudas is presently available with more power and a unique skill, CDG is often played just for providing the chance to search for a grade 3. Fighters will be able to earn PR/0069EN Creeping Dark Goat by participating in 4 or more matches in the Free Fight event. They will also be able to earn PR/0070EN Shield Knight of the Clouds by participating in 2 or more matches.

As a participation prize for taking part in the main regional tournament PR/0071EN Graphite Cannon Dragon will be given out, along with a card storage box.
