This Thursday, at the Tokyo Game Show 2021 presentation, Konami shared new info about the upcoming video game “Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel!” With additional information about story mode and gameplay, it was announced that the game will be released the next winter. So, that puts the release date somewhere between December 2021 and March 2022.
It’s been two years since the last Yu-Gi-Oh! video-game (Legacy of the Duelist), and fans of probably the most popular trading card game in history were eager to get something new. Earlier this year, Konami announced a new game, but they didn’t provide much more information.
Now finally, it’s officially known that the game will have story mode with missions and storylines based on Yu-Gi-Oh! Hidden Arsenal and Duel Terminal. The game will feature over 10,000 cards, and it will be free to play!
Yu-Gi-Oh! is a manga series that first showed up in 1996 (celebrating 25 years this year), and the official card game was established in 1999, and since then it became a global phenomenon, with hundreds of thousands of players across the world. In January 2021, it was reported that the game sold over 35 billion cards, grossing over $9.6 billion.
“Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel!” video-game is in development for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and it will also be available on mobile devices.
