Release information

This card was first release in the Base Set, originating from the Expansion Pack in Japan, with artwork by Keiji Kinebuchi. It was later reprinted in the English Base Set 2. It was later included in the Boundaries Crossed expansion, originating from the Cold Flare expansion, as an Ace Spec Item card with updated artwork by Ryo Ueda. Despite the near-identical text, the Boundaries Crossed edition is not considered a reprint (due to the Ace Spec designation) of the original card and neither version may be substituted for the other in deck construction.
