While, I haven’t been able to play it yet, due to the lines typically being more than 2 hours long. I did manage to buy some cards though a card gacha machine in Akihabara. They are pretty high quality, really sturdy and the holographic ones are well done.
While browsing through the shops that sell the cards, I saw that one of them sells for about 7500 yen. Not too bad for a 1000 yen investment!
This game is high on my priority list to play so I think I’ll try venturing out to some Game Centers outside of the major station areas, or just have to suck it up one night and wait. My usually game center has one of the machines up on a projector so people in line can watch… I think I would freak out if that machine I landed, so I don’t think I will be trying it out there.
