Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. will launch Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links across 150 countries and regions in mid-January 2017.
The highly anticipated mobile title will be available on iOS and Android devices in 11 languages, including English, French, Chinese, Korean and many others. Since its launch in Japan in November, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links has received more than 5 million downloads within two weeks.
Based on the Yu-Gi-Oh! official trading card game, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links brings the popular game to life on mobile devices. Duelists can kindle the spirit of Yami Yugi, Seto Kaiba and other beloved characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise in competitive card battle action.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links allows Duelists to construct the ultimate Deck by choosing from more than 700 authentic Yu-Gi-Oh! cards to play in fast-paced, real-time PvP Duels. The essence of Yu-Gi-Oh! is re-imagined for mobile as players can battle Duelists from all over the world by Summoning monsters, Traps and Spells in an effort to reduce their opponent’s life points to ensure victory.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! series is based on both the manga Yu-Gi-Oh! (by Kazuki Takahashi), which was serialized in SHUEISHA Inc.’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1996, and the fifth iteration of the “Yu-Gi-Oh!” animated series (currently airing on TV Tokyo-affiliated channels). KONAMI released the first console game in 1998, and the series, including the trading card game, is still enjoyed by countless customers worldwide. KONAMI continues to develop and distribute a wide range of Yu-Gi-Oh! content to deliver the fun and excitement of the series to customers around the globe.
