Konami Digital Entertainment has confirmed that Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is coming to Nintendo Switch.
Whether new to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game (TCG) or an experienced player, you will be able to compete against other players from across the globe in intense collectible card Duels.
Promised to be “the most complete Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG digital title yet,” unlike other games that have featured the manga and anime Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel will be fully positioned around the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.
“As the name suggests, Master Duel is a game that can be played using the Master Rules of the Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG/TCG,” explains senior producer Kenichi Kataoka. “With a blueprint of ‘Online Yu-Gi-Oh! for both players and audiences,’ Master Duel will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, Android, and many other platforms.
“We have tried to keep a good balance between the presentation and the tempo of Duels. Also, in card games, it is often difficult for audiences to understand what is going on. But in this game, we are confident that audiences can also enjoy watching it.
“For those who are new to OCG/TCG, I recommend Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. Now that Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel will be available for consoles, we have prepared a tutorial within the game to make it easy to learn. Those who are new to OCG/TCG can also easily learn to play Master Duel as we’ve prepared a tutorial element within the game.
“Duel Links and Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution are positioned as character games that allow players to enjoy the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! manga and anime, but Master Duel is differentiated as a game that allows players to fully enjoy the OCG/TCG.
“We hope this new game will be enjoyed by everyone all over the world, there will be tournaments offered at many levels for competitive and casual play. We also want to make it an official event at the Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship, the pinnacle of the OCG/TCG. I’m looking forward to meeting Duelists from all over the world through this game.”
Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
