Konami Announces Multiple New Digital Yu-Gi-Oh! Titles, Including Its "Most Complete" Digital Version Yet
Konami already has a digital CCG presence in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, but a video presentation today revealed much more about its future plans for online gaming. Duel Links itself will be adding the Arc V world in 2021, but the biggest announcements revolved around a group of new games that are sure to please duelists who believe in the heart of the cards.
The biggest reveal was for Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel, a full-featured adaption of the physical CCG Konami calls "the most complete Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG digital title yet." It will release on basically every platform under the sun -- PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, Steam iOS, and Android -- and will be the first digital Yu-Gi-Oh! digital game to officially support 4K resolution.
Because of that resolution, Digital Producer Kenichi Kataoka suggested that players enjoy the game "on a large screen TV. You will be amazed at the resolution that allows you to see the text of the cards placed on the field." Given the usual tiny font size on a Yu-Gi-Oh! card, that's a much-needed benefit.
Also highlighted during the presentation was Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duels, which released in Japan in 2020 but will be coming to the Switch in the Americas and Europe this fall. It looks like a more fast-paced, scaled-down version of the TCG, with RPG elements. Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel was also announced for Android and iOS devices, and looks to be a four-player game, though no further details were mentioned.
While no payment models were mentioned for any of these games, Master Duel being on so many platforms, including mobile, and having a similar "hardcore experience" feeling as Magic: The Gathering Arena makes me think it will be free-to-play. Cross Duels will likely be the same, though I'm more skeptical about Rush Duels. In any case, it's a good day to be a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan, as you're going to have a lot to keep you busy in the coming months and years.
