Seven thousand six hundred forty nine. That’s how many Yu-Gi-Oh! cards there are, and every single one — yes, all 7,649 of them — is on public display right now at the Shinjuku Station in Tokyo to promote the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions movie premiering this Saturday.

The exhibit launched today, April 18, and runs through May 1. If you are in the area and would like to check it out, head to the Shinjuku Station Metro Promenade by the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line. The nearest entry point is Shinjuku Station East Exit A9.

While similar exhibits have made an appearance at Shueisha’s Jump Festa event and at the Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship in Kyoto last year, this is the first time the exhibit is available to the public for all passersby to marvel at. Have a look at some photos below from social media.

Wow… That’s all I really can say about these displays.

  1. That’s a very impressive display of Duel Monster cards and I love the mural they set up too. After seeing all of promo stuff in Japan, it makes me wish I could be there to witness everything. Unfortunately I can’t but at least I can show my support even if it’s just retweeting stuff on Twitter.

  2. Oh man, there is soooo much promo stuff going on in Japan that I bet most fans there can’t even experience it all. Checking stuff out on Twitter is definitely easier. :)

  3. This is the kind of stuff I tell myself I would have liked as a kid. In reality, it still blows my mind now. I would be looking at that display like other people look at a Picasso, certain that the highest form of art had been achieved.

  4. It must be especially amazing to be in the presence of some of the mega rare cards that people hardly ever see, like the Meteor B. Dragon and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon tournament prize cards from over 15 years ago.

  5. That would be pretty amazing, although I would probably take some time to locate Flame Champion, my favorite card that no one cares about.
