Hello there everyone! I hope that you are all having a good day.
As we are about halfway through the year, I am wanting to go over the release schedule for the back half of 2023. I hope you are all as excited as we are!
Firstly, we are going to announce an all-new product that we have been wanting for quite some time! THE CHAMPION COLLECTION!!!
Champion collections are products featuring the two previous world champion decks. Ava’s Altmaha Turbo from 2022, and Kenton’s Uranus Tempo from 2023! They will be included in a battle box like product. CC01 will release on July 1st 2023.
For the rest of the year, here’s what we are looking forward to.
June: TD05 Final Eclipse
July: CC01 2022/2023
August: BT07 Little Legends
October: BT08: Decade Gold
November: TD06 Zezsonians
December: BB02: Virgo Flight
As a note, we got so many submissions for Fan Collection that we are having to split it all into multiple products! The first of which will Trial Deck 6 and Battle Box 02!!!
Hey there Gate Masters! Speedrobo here with a small rules update. This update won’t effect gameplay to the point that anyone will really notice. That’s why it’s so important to mention it in a blog post.
The new rule added to the battle phase is as follows: “If the turn player’s opponent has not had a turn during this game, only one attack may be declared and that attack cannot be a Link Attack.”
Extra turn are really cool and I want to be able to add more of those to the game without having negative impacts on going first and basically having no downside for doing so.
If you want to check out the rules specifically, please read the update here.
When a lonely young man seeks out friends, he stumbles upon the game “System Gate”. For the first time, his drive to succeed is Ignited! Will he be able to break out of his shell and find a real connection?
Hey there! This years championship was a blast, so let’s cover the aftermath for those who couldn’t make it.
Out of our top 4 players, two were playing Uranus and two were playing Saturn! Yet, each of the decks were quite different.
In fourth place, Louise “Destroyer of Planets” Vassay playing control Uranus.
In third place, Andrew Hoch with Excalibur Turbo.
In Second Place, AVA with Clockwork Saturn.
And in first place comes Kenton Banyai with tempo Uranus!

Hi there Gate Masters! I am very excited to announce two light novel projects in the works for System Gate!
The first of which is titled “System Gate Ignition”. This web novel is being written by Elfenis. This talented young author was given free reign to tell his own story using the medium of the game and so far has knocked it out of the park. The first chapter will be posting on his Honeyfeed and Speedrobo Games Website later this month.
Another author is currently taking her own spin on the source material, and I am excited to share more about her project when it’s closer to release.
