The Japanese have enjoyed playing card games for hundreds of years which can be traced all the way to the mid-1500’s, Now, Bandai is changing things up a little by introducing these Saint Seiya Hanafuda cards.

These cards are a result of a collaboration between Nintendo and Bandai and they bring a Saint Seiya twist to this old Japanese tradition.
