As the arcade's iterations evolved, there were many waves of arcade cards released. Each new wave included at least several new cards mixed among an array of re-released previous cards (for a total which reached around 100 per), but few but the first several waves were large enough to feature every card at once (while many featured most or all Moves and Super Moves thus far, only about 5-8 Dinosaurs of each element were included per wave, including new additions).

There were three language versions of arcade cards: Japanese, English, and Mandarin Chinese (Taiwanese). Both the English and Taiwanese versions (on a year or two delay) had faithfully followed the Japanese updates up until their respective Series 2 4th Editions (equivalent to Japanese 2007 4th Edition & 2007 4th Edition+) and included the anime dinosaurs (Chomp, Ace, Paris, Terry, Spiny, Tank, & Black Tyrannosaurus; except English version), but that is where the two largely ended.

Surprisingly enough, the Taiwanese version was able to create a final update for itself to include the dinosaurs that would be later on added in Japanese version Gekizan 1st Edition (Rajasaurus, Isisaurus, etc.). However, the final additions were only there to fill almost the entirety of the card list in the arcade version before the Gekizan update.

Due to the Japanese official website's shutdown, sources are based on Japanese forums, blogs, tournament videos, and other archived images.

  • Nemesis Edition

Taiwanese VersionsEdit

Taiwanese versions were same as English, but as said above, Taiwan was able to create their own card list, the "Series 2 5th Edition". After this, Dinosaur King officially stopped updating in Taiwan, along with the English versions, and has been overtaken by other arcade games. Unlike the English version, which simply stopped, the Taiwanese version was instead fully replaced by the Japanese version in Taiwan, and so followed those releases.

Interestingly enough, the Series 2, 5th Edition recycles artwork from previous editions:

  • 1st Edition
  • 2nd Edition
  • 2008 Special Edition
  • 3rd Edition
  • 4th Edition
  • Series 2 ("New" in Taiwanese) 1st Edition
  • Series 2 2nd Edition
  • Series 2 3rd Edition
  • Series 2 4th Edition
  • Series 2 5th Edition
