KONAMI ANNOUNCES Yu-Gi-Oh! DUEL LINKS MOBILE GAME COMING THIS WINTER
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced it will be releasing Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, bringing the popular trading card game (TCG) to life on iOS and Android devices coming this Winter. Duelists will kindle the spirit of Yami Yugi, Seto Kaiba and other beloved characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise in competitive card battle action.
In Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, Duelists will 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 toward victory.
KONAMI heightens the Yu-Gi-Oh! experience in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links by including familiar voices from the U.S. animated series, as they guide and challenge Duelists in single player modes. As Duelists encounter new challenges, they will unlock additional characters and relive significant rivalries from the original TV series.
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 will continue 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.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links will be on display at New York Comic Con 2016 held at the Jacob Javits Center from October 6-9 at KONAMI’s booth number 1321.
