News: G-Booster 02 "Soaring Ascent of Gale & Blossom" to Hit Western Shores in May

Yesterday evening the English-language Vanguard portal's products page updated to include the logo for VGE-G-BT02: Soaring Ascent of Gale & Blossom, an upcoming booster set still unreleased in Japan. Known through various translations as Flying Flowers and Soaring Beauty prior to this, the set did not have an official English title when first announced in Japan, causing others to use its native Japanese title Fuuga Tenshou (風華天翔 "Wind Flower Heaven Soaring.") The initial lack of an English title lead some to speculate that G-BT02 would not be coming to the west, and would instead be folded into another set akin to the fate of MBT01: Neon Messiah.
G-BT02 features primary support for the Neo Nectar, Aqua Force and Great Nature clans, with secondary support for the Gear Chronicle, Royal Paladin, Narukami and Cray Elemental clans. The set's revival legion is Dragonic Kaiser the Crimson, its cover card is Flower Princess of Vernal Equinox Primavera, and in addition to Blue Storm support it also features cards designed to bolster dedicated Maelstrom decks. Soaring Ascent of Gale & Blossom will release in Japanese on February 20th 2015, and in English on May 22nd of the same year.
