Bushiroad have announced 2 new franchises for their Weiss Schwarz series - Batman Ninja will be released in February, and Revue Starlight will follow at a later date.

The Batman release will mark the second English-language exclusive deck to arrive for the game, with an international release planned.

Weiss Schwaerz is a deck-battle card game from the same studio behind the popular Cardfight Vanguard series, creating decks using popular franchises such as Cardcaptor Sakura, Fate and BanG Dream!

From the Press Release:

Bushroad unveils two new titles that will be featured in the English edition of its popular Trading Card Game Weiß Schwarz at the Bushiroad Championship Series 2018 World Finals held at the Akihabara UDX. 

Batman Ninja

Batman Ninja is a unique film featuring the Dark Knight that places the heroes and villains of the Batman universe in feudal Japan. This marks the second English Edition Exclusive title to be released internationally, and will serve to add more depth and selection to the game’s current environment. The first English Exclusive title, Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card, will be released on February 22, 2019.

A Trial Deck + and Booster Pack will be released for this title. A Trial Deck + contains a pre-made deck of cards that can be used immediately for play, while the Booster Pack contains cards that will allow players to upgrade their Trial Deck + or to build an entirely new deck.

Revue Starlight

Reunited by fate, childhood friends and aspiring stage actresses Karen and Hikari must compete in a mysterious audition process to gain acceptance in the famed stage production “Starlight” and become top stars.

The official release dates for Batman Ninja and Revue Starlight will be announced at a later time.

You can keep an eye on updates on Bushiroad's Facebook Page or official Weiss Schwarz site.
