What are the Union Arena Card Rarities?

Here’s a list of the 6 different levels of rarity:

  • Common (C)
  • Uncommon (U)
  • Rare (R)
  • Super Rare (SR)
  • Union Rare (UR)
  • Action Point (AP)
  • Special (SP)

There are also ★, ★★, and ★★★ parallel foils with different arts and foil patterns.

What Are the Union Arena Pull Rates?

There aren’t any official pull rates yet but anecdotally I’ve pulled 4 SRs and one ★ per booster box. APs are said to be a case hit ie. one per case and ★★ and ★★★ are even harder to pull than that.

Will Union Arena be Available in English?

Bandai made an official announcement that the game would be coming to North America in english October 2024.

There seems to be enough interest in bringing the game to english. So far Bleach HunterxHunter and Jujutsu Kaisen are releasing first. Demon Slayer and One Punch Man will release in the second wave.
