Konami Fails to Release Product

North Las Vegas, NV (January 13, 2009) Upper Deck regrets to announce that hobby tournament stores nationwide will not receive their orders of Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Champion Packs. Despite contractual obligations, Konami Digital Entertainment failed to send the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Champion Packs to Upper Deck for distribution to hobby stores.

Keeping the best interests of Yu-Gi-Oh! players and retailers in mind, Upper Deck has maintained business as usual during this uncertain time, fulfilling orders and shipping product to retailers so that Duelists can continue to enjoy the game. Unfortunately, Konami Digital has not released the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Champion Packs to Upper Deck, despite having received the order on time several months ago, rendering Upper Deck unable to fill orders from hobby stores.

Upper Deck regrets that the Yu-Gi-Oh! community is being denied this product, but encourages players to continue to support their local hobby store. Please stay tuned to UDE.com for information about upcoming events.

I hope not. That would be really not good for the game in the US. You would think that Konami would want to at least keep YGO going no matter what.

In regards to today's UDE press release on Champion Packs, Konami had the following response:

"Despite what was recently announced by The Upper Deck Company (UDC), the distribution agreement between Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KDE) and UDC for North America has been terminated. KDE is the exclusive worldwide licensee for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. We have always been and continue to be the sole manufacturer and are the only authorized distributor in North America." Yumi Hoashi, VP Card Business, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
