Yu-Gi-Oh!, the popular manga series and card game from the early 2000s, is making a comeback in 2021 to the joy of 20-something-year-olds.
About 15-years-or-so later, Yu-Gi-Oh! is making a comeback in the form of video games. Not that the popular series died, as it was kept alive by die-hard fans over the years. However, with the help of Konami, the franchise will be introduced to the modern era.
During the “Yu-Gi-Oh! Digital Next” live stream event, Konami unveiled three new upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh video games. There’s the Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel and Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel.
The third one, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel will be in English and will arrive sometime in Q4 of 2021 on Nintendo Switch. The game will be based on the Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens anime that introduced an entirely new spin on the classic Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card format.
Meanwhile the Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel will take back players to the classic trading card game and will be introduced to the new modes in a video game form. It’s an online game that lets fans from around the globe play together.
The Master Duel will solely focus on the online card game and will not have elements from the manga and anime shows. The game will arrive across all platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Steam, Switch, and even mobile (iOS and Android).
Lastly, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel will bring four-player combat. Not many details have been revealed, but it’s said to arrive on iOS and Android devices globally.
