I’m calling this an update blog because we covered the broad strokes of Konami’s next Yu-Gi-Oh! game(s) in a previous blog. At that time, we only had the little bit of information that Konami had revealed during their Digital Next event. Since then, more details have come out regarding Master Duel, which is primed to be one of their biggest games yet. You can go back to that blog if you haven’t read it already.
If you did happen to catch that blog, you may recall some of the details and plans that Konami announced for Master Duel. One of the more important details was the fact that they were hoping to have Master Duel serve as a digital version of the card game, enhancing the overall online TCG/OCG experience for players. They also told us that it would be available on a host of platforms, including Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Steam, and mobile.
Now, that’s some good, solid info that we’ve been giving so far, especially so far ahead of its official launch, which we’re still not totally sure about yet. But, thanks to the most recent update, we have some more good info that has been made official. In this blog, we’ll talk about some of those new details and what they mean for players like us.
First things first, the trailer. Yes, the teaser that came out back in late August.
If you watched all the way to the end, you noticed the message that there will be over 10,000 cards in this game, just waiting to be unlocked. It was also revealed that Master Duel will be free to play across those various platforms that were mentioned earlier. I don’t know about you, but those two bits of info hyped me up the most.
Dark Magician, Blue-Eyes White Dragon, and Exodia the Forbidden One. It’s funny, too, because those were three cards that I had in my deck back in the day, which I still have to this day. Out of all the cards that I had/have, those three were among my very favorites. I also liked my Red-Eyes Black Dragon, but it doesn’t quite make the cut for my top three. Of course, there will be more monsters, coupled with certain spell traps as well, which should look familiar to those who have been playing since the beginning.
So far, all the signs seem to be pointing in the right direction for Master Duel to become one of Komami’s biggest Yu-Gi-Oh! games yet. Even with no official release date confirmed yet, fans of the game are becoming more and more excited about Master Duel with each day that passes. Reading about it is one thing, but actually seeing it presented in the teaser trailer is something else, which is why I’m glad Konami decided to do it now.
Hopefully, we can expect more info and teasers to come out in the next month or so, at which time I’ll add another update. For now, let’s just enjoy what we’ve been given and look forward to what lies ahead. I think it will be worth the wait. As always, if you find any more info out there, be sure to put it in the comments.
