A Seaside Resort Infected
The Hotel Ba-Kansu, a beautiful seaside resort known for hosting guests and pets of all sizes, is thrown into chaos on the night of the Imagawa Festival. VIP guest Imagawa Yoshimoto of the Sengoku BASARA series finds his beloved Dobermann infected by the T-virus. Four suspects are found related to the Dobermann and players must determine which of the four suspects is the culprit to bring them to justice! Apollo Justice from the Ace Attorney series has been called in to represent Trucy Wright, who’s been accused by prosecutor Klavier Gavin of infecting Yoshimoto's pet dog. Solve the mystery and prove Trucy’s innocence! 

A Courtroom Battle Awaits
Four suspects, each with a similar suitcase to the one found at the scene of the gruesome crime, will be questioned as players work to determine who is the real culprit. Cards will contain images with hints about how the crime went down, but make sure to expand them to get the full picture. All parties will have their day in court with new cards designed to show the truth of “the incident.” 

The following returning card mechanic and ability will be essential in bringing about a turnabout: 

  • Evidence can be obtained during the game through specific Unit and Action Cards.
  • The Ability will consume the Evidence accumulated in battle and give additional effects to Action Cards.

Players will utilize the new card pack to determine the real criminal, their motives, and the tricks they used in the crime. Eight supplemental cards will be added the following month, illustrated from the perspective of the culprit, which will reveal the whole story.

New Cards
Turn over every stone by collecting all the relevant parties. Suspects include; the Green Card “Silk Hat Defendant Trucy,” the Black card “Elite Suspect Excella,” the Purple card “Sorceress Suspect Tessa,” and the Red Card “Suspect Cutie B.B. Hood.” Here’s a look at Silk Hat Defendant Trucy:
