So I guess this means we're definitely not getting Noah Kaiba, with Shinato and Chiron (both cards he used) as pack cards. Shame, with the virtual world theme he could have been a really interesting event Duelist...
There's nothing stopping them using Noah for an event if they want. There's still plenty of thematically relevant things to choose from (including a fair amount of Spirit stuff, though we do have a lot already). I don't see why getting Shinato and Chiron is even all that concerning considering we got like half his stuff in Valkyrie's Rage already.
Would be disappointing if they don't bring him. They gave us Mokuba and Super Joey, why would you miss out a character like Noah? He could hacked himself into duel links and there you have your storyline to bring him..
He is coming, Konami is taking their time designing graphics and phrases for him, anonymous brought up a good point about the P. Bros. Noah may use cards that are in packs. I am Jace, thank you for your time.
