Sunrise Crusade

0811_13.jpg

Not to be confused with the Crusade Against Sunrise, Sunrise Crusade is a spinoff of the Gundam War card game featuring cards from a number of classic Sunrise series.  I only found out about this by accident the other day while searching on my favourite website for Gundam War and Lycee cards.  Currently it has one full set and the 2nd one was just released, but there are no pictures I can find online of it yet.  It’s a relatively new game and appears to follow the same ruleset as Gundam War, so I think the cards can be used along with it.  I have some of the key cards from the first set here though, which I thought I’d post some pictures of for the hell of it.  Hopefully people enjoy the artwork (which I think it pretty damn good).

Heavy Metal L-Gaim:

Sunrise Crusade Original Card:

Sunrise Team Up (By The Way If Anyone Recognizes The Person On The Far Right They Probably Know What’s Coming Next Expansion.  It Can’t Be Fair)

That’s all for now.  I’ve basically given the most important cards from each series set.  Right now the series included are Aura Battler Dunbine, Sentou Mecha Xabungle, SPT Layzner, Armored Trooper Votoms, Heavy Metal L-Gaim, Daitarn 3, and Zambot 3.  Expansion 2 is supposed to have brought in some more cards from each series included in the first set as well as some new ones.  These include, Brain Powerd, Cowboy Bebop, Densetsu Kyojin Ideon (You’ve got to be kidding me. I’m going to automatically awesome Ideon is a 9,?,9 card) and Yuusha Oh Gaogaigar (Garest series ever made by the way).

Expansion 3 is due out some time in May and is supposed to bring in even more cards from the first and second set and add some from Panzer World Galient and Code Geass Lelouch of The Rebellion.  There are obviously no Gundam cards as Gundam War (which is going into it’s tenth year anniversary celeberation as we speak) has had that covered for ages.  There are however some new Gundam 00 cards that I managed to find:

Gundam Virtue (Attack 5, Support Attack 0, Defense 6, Pilot=Tieria Erde, Affiliation=Celestial Being)

AEU Enact (Attack 4, Support Attack 1, Defense 2)

img_card_06_l.gif

Louise Halevy (Attack 0, Support Attack 0, Defense 0) (No idea what her ability is)

So that’s that folks.  It’s pretty cool there’s a Mecha card game that’s more than just Gundam War now.  Too bad I’ll probably never get a chance to try the game as Gundam War has long since been discontinued in North America and Sunrise Crusade is likely to be greeted with a whole lot of “Huh” from consumers.  I guess nobody is ready for 3 Attack and 2 Defense and they like there 2500 Attack and 1000 Defense (see if you can guess which unnecessarily high stat numbered game I’m talking about).  Oh well, it’s not like I don’t like that game, it’s just kind of….well, simple and it doesn’t incite any fan recognition in me (other than Konami stuff).  Until next time folks.

Update:

Densetsu Kyojin Ideon:

    One word about Ideon: Seriously broken. Sure, it had a tempermental power source, but honestly…

  2. 2 RmX March 7, 2008 at 6:08 am

    Big numbers like those of Yu-Gi-Oh! are better at catching the short attention spans of the younger audience.

    Yep, the Ideon sounds like a classic case of canons crashing: ‘you can have faithful or balanced, but not both’.

  4. 4 chill March 7, 2008 at 11:01 am

    wow this is pretty awesome. Can’t wait to see Mashin Eiyuden WATARU, Goldran, and other childhood classics being brought back into cards =O

    If I’d see a 9 9 9 on the Ideon card somewhere, well, I won’t be TOO surprised. Wouldn’t it be fun though if it actually started with low stats, then had some event cards that caused it to release the Ide? :)

    I managed to find a picture of the Ideon card on the Sunrise Crusade Homepage. It’s a 9,3,9 and I guess it’s an ultra rare card that isn’t stocked in stores yet because I can’t find it on the card website I usually go to.

  7. 7 Arachno.Sapien March 19, 2008 at 2:07 pm

    Lol. First Sunrise Crusade pack I picked up here in Okinawa had Ideon.

  8. 8 Kaioshin Sama March 19, 2008 at 5:13 pm

    I hope you find a way to actually get it into play. It’s casting cost looks pretty darn high.

  9. 9 Dorne June 27, 2008 at 2:26 pm

    Votoms is in it too!

    Can’t read Japanese, so could you tell me what Chirico’s special ability is ?

  10. 10 Kaioshin Sama June 28, 2008 at 1:53 am

    Chirico bounces back to the hand if equipped to a proper Armored Trooper instead of going to the graveyard. Seems pretty appropriate. The downside seems to be that if you have him in play he must attack during the combat phase if possible.

    I don’t like much Haran Banjo’s stats: he rarely supported anyone and was pretty badass to just have 2 and 2; maybe giving something less to his mecha and more to him, mh…

    Show Zama could have had a better support score, not to mention they had to give him also the Billbine!!
