Release information

This card was included in the English Neo Genesis expansion, first released in the Japanese Gold, Silver, to a New World... expansion, with artwork by Ken Sugimori. It was later reprinted in Japan with new artwork by CR CG gangs as part of the Sample Set, a small collection of cards created in order to promote the e-Reader prior to its release in Japan on December 1, 2001. This print is part of the first produced collection of 3 cards utilized at the Game Boy Advance product announcement meeting held during a press conference in Tokyo on March 7, 2001, with the demonstrations given by Tsunekazu Ishihara. Due to its placement at the end of the Neo Era, it contains elements of both the Neo Era and e-Card Era, maintaining its level, but updating to an e-Card card design. It was never intended for distribution, but an unknown amount of copies of this print have made their way out to the public.
