After the nightmare of Zexal, we finally get a new series(produced by the same guy that did 5Ds, thank god). Yugioh Arc V.
Apart from introducing a new mechanic to the decade old game with pendulum summoning, pendulum zones and pendulum monsters that are half monster card and half spell card: http://yugioh.wikia....Pendulum_Summon
Three new rules are being implemented to the game(in the OCG for now, but the new starter deck is due in June):
1. The player going first doesn't draw a card.
2. Both Players can have field cards active at the same time
3.Card effects will be labeled in a way to make them easier to read.
BTW: don't let the sub throw you off in Japan sacrificing is called releasing and tribute summons are called advanced summons.
