IN THE NEW HERO STRIKE STRUCTURE DECK
El Segundo, CA (January 8, 2015) – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.

GX anime and manga series, the HERO Strike Structure Deck contains new cards with new ways to Summon them!
Elemental HERO Decks rely on the power of Fusion Summoning, allowing players to fuse monsters together with Spell Cards like Polymerization and Miracle Fusion to Summon Elemental HERO Fusion Monsters. Duelists will be on the edge of their seats anxious to implement the HERO Strike Structure Deck into Duels, armed with brand new Spell Cards like Form Change and Mask Change II that give monsters a new secret identity as a Masked HERO monster. As a special bonus, the HERO Strike Structure Deck also includes one new Ultra Rare Card and four new Super Rare Cards, bringing the total count to 45 Cards!
Whether players are old-time Yu-Gi-Oh! GX fans, or discovering the Elemental HERO strategy for the first time, they can now wield the power of these marvelous heroes to elevate their game.
The HERO Strike Structure Deck contains 40 Common Cards, 1 Ultra Rare Card, 4 Super Rare Cards, 1 Dueling Guide, 1 Rulebook and 1 Game Mat.
