You mean after? Z-one is the last villian in the series, but i think we will get Paradox first.

What? No… Z-One is the final antagonist and the reason Aporia (who is actually a robotic copy of a dead man) even exists.

Those two got skipped. I guess we won't get them. We didn't get all Dark Signers as well. I guess Konami wants to release the more important duelists first.

Aporia's ace card will again be on a mini box. It will also come with the release of Aporia's broken skills as a limited event.

Isn´t it a little weird that a Granel piece is being released as a reward, then? Could still be Jakob.

I may as well do that tbh, roaming duelists are pointless and I'm not really interested in more 5ds characters
