Release information

This card was included in the Next Destinies expansion with artwork by 5ban Graphics, first released in the Japanese Psycho Drive expansion. In Japan, an unnumbered Mirror Holofoil BW-P Promotional print was awarded to players of the Victory Cup events, held over the course of Battle Carnival 2011, who managed to reach the 'Premier Stage'. In order to reach the 'Premier Stage', players had to win three consecutive battles in the initial 'Challenge Stage'. The Battle Carnival took place at the Mydome Osaka, Osaka on November 5 and 6, 2011, and at Sunshine City, Tokyo on November 19 and 20, 2011. It was reprinted as part of the Japanese Master Deck Build Box EX, released on September 14, 2012. It was reprinted again in the Ancient Origins expansion with new artwork by Toyste Beach, first released in the Japanese Bandit Ring expansion.
