Upper Deck has shared a first look at the new Neopets TCG - now releasing in 2024.
Become the champion of the Battledome and uncover the wonders of Neopia in this fast-paced 2-player trading card game. Neopets Battledome TCG features a unique dice combat system, innovative deck building strategies, and over 20 Neopets to collect!
With over 250 unique pieces of custom art, the nostalgia of Neopets is brought to life with exquisite artwork on each card. Created by fan favorite artists Anthony Conley (@anthonyconleyart), Krista Staggs (@kuitsuku), Shamine Athena King (@quartervirus), and many more; the illustrations bring the vibrant Neopets characters and their surroundings to life. From cute and cuddly to fierce and formidable, the cards showcase the incredible diversity of the Neopian universe. Let the enchanting artwork capture your imagination and fuel the need to collect them all.

Update July 26th: Upper Deck has announced that while the promo card set that will be available at Gen Con will be slightly different (Blue Shoyru - like on the avatar - with different stats, and Har Codestone instead of Mau) the code will award the same avatar. Additionally they will have the playmats available as a gift with purchase.
A series of Neopets Graphic Novels has been announced, with the first launching in summer of 2024.
The first book, titled Neopets: The Omelette Faerie is written by NYT bestselling author Rebecca Mix (who incidentally got her start in writing on the RP Neoboards!) and illustrated by Heather Burns. Shoutout to Erinn Pascal (of cookbook fame) for editing.
Here is a brief summary from the author:
When the Giant Omelette goes rotten and Neopets begin to come down with Ugga Ugga, and a strange, intrepid Faerie that’s lost her magic appears and tells Sabre-X she thinks the cure is hidden deep in Tyrannia, the two will have to set aside their mistrust & set out to solve the mystery before it’s too late.
You can also check out her post on Instagram where she speaks more about the book and how it was a “PURE JOY” to write!
Today, Neopets has announced their plans for this year's San Diego Comic-Con, happening July 19-23 at the San Diego Convention Center. Neopets will be at booth #1129 and will feature:

There will also be a “LEGENDARY” reveal for those in attendance, as well as games, photo-ops, and more.
