Former iC Carddass game and DBS TCG (A Comparison and Analysis for theorycrafting purposes)

Recommended Posts

I am sure that I'm not the only one in the know. I am also sure that not everyone may be aware  that the Dragon Ball Super Card Game was not exactly a new game, even back when Galactic Battle first launched.

The DBS CCG is based on an older japanese-only card game where each card had some sort of chip inside (sort of like Dragon Ball Heroes, if your familiar, though not exactly). The purpose of the chip was to allow the use of your real cards with an App that you could battle friends all over Japan, not just those sitting across from you at a table, though the game could obviously still be played that way if preferable. Oddly enough, if you search through Youtube - allow me to save you the trouble - you can find videos of people playing the game on this app and it looks nearly identical to what we got in the DBS CCG Tutorial App. The game obviously evolved into what we currently know as the Dragon Ball Super Card Game, though many things have changed in the newest iteration. Extra Cards, for example, were almost completely non-existent and were only released during the games latest set, Series 5.

That's not all that's changed however. Though the newer game has noticeably changed some Battle Cards into Extra Cards in the newer version, most Battle Cards, themselves, have had their Energy Color changed.

If your not already privy to the information, I urge you to check out their website here. Specifically, the Card List section where you will find hundreds of almost exactly identical cards that are currently in the DBS CCG. However, you would also find an equal number of cards that haven't been released yet or have been changed entirely. One such example is the Broly Leader card that we have all seen at this point, I'm sure. Well, in the modern game the artwork that's on each side of the card was actually taken from two entirely different Leader cards in the original version. The base form actually Awakens into Super Saiyan 4 Broly!!! The Awakened side of the modern Broly Leader card was actually his Unawakened state in the original game and he Awakened into SS3 Broly...

Even if they never actually re-release every one of these cards, I figured it'd be nice to have a database of sorts keeping track of this sort of thing and to theorize how they could re-implement them into the modern iteration of the game. Granted, a large number of these cards are just plain ol' vanilla cards but they will be included in this list anyway. Since they have changed plenty already, it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that they could do so with them as well. At some point in the future, I will likely attempt to theory-craft set idea's based on some of the cards and make changes when warranted or when it feels necessary but I'll save that for later posts.


Unused iC Carddass Asset's

Below is a list of all of the card's released during the games original run that have yet to be implemented in one way or another. I won't be labeling Battle Cards because the majority of them are battle cards, but Leaders and Extra Cards will be noted. Lastly, If I missed anything, feel free to call me out.
