Lift up the sofa cushions, rummage through old jeans, break those piggie banks - Final Fantasy is now in trading card form.
Square Enix announced the new merchandise last month, and recently revealed new details for the upcoming collection - a series of battle cards featuring your favourite faces from the Final Fantasy world.
The trading cards are set to launch in Japan on February 25th, available in two starter kits: Black and White. Each set, available for 1,500 yen ($18), contains 50 cards, including a unique special card (much like the Pokémon Trading Card series).
Boosters cost 330 yen ($4) and contain 8 randoms. There are also five different "grades" of how often the cards appear - from common to premium, with 160 normal cards and 162 premium.
There are 3 types of cards:
Forward - Basic cards used for attack and defense against other forwards.
Backup - Provide "Crystal Points" needed to use actions and support Forwards.
Summons - Single use cards offering special moves/effects.
