If you haven’t had enough of Yuma and his clutch C39: Utopia Ray, then this will excite you: Konami is creating Zexal Weapon Phoenix Bow. Zexal Weapons are monsters that aid C39 Utopia by giving it stat boosts. In the anime, they are summoned by achieving ZEXAL, but because that is not humanely possible, Konami just created cards.
Zexal Weapon Phoenix Bow will not be the first Zexal Weapon, it will be the second, behind Zexal Weapon Unicorn Spear. ZW Unicorn Spear has 1900 attack points and can be equipped to C39: Utopia Ray. By doing so, it gives Utopia Ray a 1900 attack point boost and the ability to inflict piercing damage.
Zexal Weapon Phoenix Bow on the other hand has 1100 attack points. Like ZW Unicorn Spear, ZW Phoenix Bow can also be equipped to C39: Utopia Ray and by doing so, increases its attack points by 1100. Phoenix Bow also gives Utopia Ray the ability to inflict 1000 life point damage whenever it destroys a monster.
Zexal Weapons are a not only a cool addition to the Zexal storyline, but to the card game as a whole. Before the Zexal Weapons were released, there was really no support for Yuma’s ace monster. The Zexal Weapons could be the beginning of a long line of support for Yuma’s ace monster, similar to how Jaden’s Elemental Heroes had lots of support. There will probably be more Zexal Weapons as Yugioh Zexal continues.
