Traditional Chinese cards are Chinese cards printed with the Traditional set of Han characters. They are manufactured by Konami of Hong Kong, and have been officially distributed in Asia since 2014, introduced in the Duel Starter Deck. This is the only printed language in which there is no form of text about the Attributes. Their ID is TC.
When the Traditional Chinese print was announced, a list of planned products was also released: Structure Deck: The Blue-Eyed Dragon's Thundering Descent in April, Gold Series 2014 in May, Duelist Edition Volume 1 in June, Duelist Edition Volume 2 in July, Duelist Edition Volume 3 in October, and Beginner's Edition 2 (2011) in December. Of these, only the first two sets were actually released.
Sets in this language originally stopped with Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy in March 2016. However, it was announced that such sets would resume in 2020, and would be extended to Mainland China, with some sets also to be printed in Simplified Chinese.
