I didn't know about this:

From KH-Insider:

Roseville, MN (November 19, 2007) Fantasy Flight Games announced today that they are initiating a four week television advertising campaign for the Kingdom Hearts Trading Card Game in select cities.

"We're excited about reaching a new audience of gamers," said Jeremy Stomberg of FFG. "Kingdom Hearts is a hugely popular brand, and we're hoping that these commercials will help make US and Canadian Kingdom Hearts fans aware of the availability of the TCG in North America! We hope that retailers in these markets will experience the blockbuster potential of this new game."

The 30-second commercial will be shown in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Baltimore, Seattle, and Atlanta media markets. Channels will focus on the Cartoon Network, but will also include Toon Disney(Atlanta only), the Sci-Fi Channel (including spots in the highly anticipated Battlestar Galactica movie on November 23), as well as spots during the December 9th Video Game Awards on Spike TV. The commercial will run continually from November 19th through the 16th of December.

The commercial was produced by FFG's in-house media division, Landroval Studios, which has created online advertisements for several of FFG’s other board and card games, as well a video tutorial included in Kingdom Hearts TCG Starter Decks. The commercial and the video tutorial can both be viewed at www.fantasyflightgames.com/kingdomhearts.

Retailers who wish to run this commercial in their local area and have their store information included should contact FFG’s Jeremy Stomberg ( jstomberg@fantasyflightgames.comThis email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it ), who can also provide information on available co-op funds and a free DVD of the commercial and video tutorial for in-store use.

Huh. A commericial for the trading card game. Hell, Kingdom Hearts might become the new Yu-Gi-Oh. However, nothing, except maybe Duel Masters will ever compare to YGO, but I seriously doubt that Kingdom Hearts will have an anime that utilizes the card game. Then again, you never know. If the Card Game is successful enough, there just might be a KH show that's like YGO. However, I'd still prefer YGO even thought you can't really compare the two.
