Crown Zenith was released on January 20, 2023 and is the final special expansion of the Sword & Shield Series. In Japan, it released as VSTAR Universe high-class expansion pack on December 2nd, 2022 and will similarly serve as the final sub-expansion of the Sword & Shield Era. VSTAR Universe also has a parallel foil set, featuring a Reverse Glitter Holofoil variant for all non-holofoil cards in the main set. Similar to other special expansions, such as Pokémon GO and Celebrations, Crown Zenith booster packs could not be purchased separately and instead, were available exclusively in various set-related products. Crown Zenith will consist of cards from the Japanese VSTAR Universe expansion, cards from VSTAR Special Set and cards from the Paradigm Trigger expansion and Incandescent Arcana subset that were not localized in Silver Tempest.
