Bandai’s card business department has announced the release of Union Arena English version, the English-language version of the Japanese card game, Union Arena, which was released in March 2023.

Once a person learns the rules, they will be able to play with any of the participating anime and game titles, many titles have already been added in Japan.
The release is not merely a simple adaptation of Japanese to English. The titles included in the lineup will be selected especially for North America and the brand logo and card back will also be specially designed for this English release as well.
