And Now For A Word From The Vanguard R&D Department!!
For Today’s Card we’re introducing 3 〈Touken Danshi – Yari〉 from the 2nd Title Booster “Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- 2” (on sale October 14th, 2016:
• Tonbokiri Toku
• Otegine Toku
“Nihongou”, if you Counter Blast 1, gains 3000 Power for each of your ally Rearguards that are in Stand State. And when it attacks, your opponent cannot Call “Sentinels”. In short, if you have 5 Rearguards are Stand, its Power leaps up to 41000, making it quite the menace to your opponent. Plan out your attack order, as it’s best to attack when you have many allies Standing!
“Tonbokiri Toku”, when it’s Called when you’ve achieved 【Shinken Hissatsu (Active when you have 3 or more Damage)】, it can grant both itself and your Vanguard an ability of “When you attack the opponent’s Vanguard, they cannot Guard with Grade 0 cards from their hand”! If you combine it with the previously introduced “Nihongou”, your opponent’s Sentinel and Grade 0 cards will be sealed. You’ll be able to apply incredibly intense pressure.
And thirdly, “Otegine Toku” seals all of your opponent’s Rearguards in the same Column as it from Intercepting. Furthermore, it gains Power for each of your opponent’s Rearguards in the same Column as it! So if your opponent has 2 Rearguards, this card’s Power rises to 11000, making it capable of hitting the opponent’s Vanguard on its own.
