Konami’s New Official Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG YouTube ChannelJuly 30, 2013 at 6:15 am | Posted in Konami, Other Stuff | Leave a comment
The evening news, Yu-Gi-Oh! style.
Everyone here loves videos right? Well, if you love videos and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game, check out Konami’s new YouTube channel at the aptly named OfficialYuGiOhTCG!
Currently uploaded are a few short commercials for the most recent Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG structure decks and sets, like Onslaught of the Fire Kings and Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy. But there are also three videos that fans of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! anime will enjoy:
- Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME 2013 World Championship Message – Pegasus (Darren Dunstan) and Kaiba (Eric Stuart) invite duelists from around the world to attend the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship, taking place on August 10 and 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is free and there will even be some non-TCG activities and carnival games for any non-duelists out there (like me!). Yugi (Dan Green) and Mai (Erica Schroeder) will be attending!
- Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG 2013 North American WCQ Opening Comments – Pegasus provides some opening remarks as the North American World Championship Qualifier gets underway on July 13 in Chicago, Illinois.
- Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG 2013 North American WCQ Live Duel – It’s a live duel: Pegasus vs. Kaiba! Pegasus demonstrates the power of a fan’s Wind-Up deck, while Kaiba counters with his trusty Blue-Eyes deck. Just like in the anime, both Pegasus and Kaiba thoroughly explain the cards that they play using plenty of cheesy dialogue, so even if you don’t know much about the TCG these days (like me!), you’ll still be able to enjoy the duel. The duel showcases a few yet-to-be-released cards from the upcoming Saga of Blue-Eyes White Dragon structure deck in action, including Dragon Shrine, Silver’s Cry, Maiden with Eyes of Blue, and Castle of Dragon Souls.
Konami has announced on Facebook that it will be streaming the final rounds of the World Championship live, just like it did last year on Ustream. Now that there’s an official YouTube channel, maybe Konami will use it instead. Keep your eyes on Facebook for more details, and be sure to subscribe to OfficialYuGiOhTCG. Live duels between the characters are always wildly popular and you can bet there will be more coming up.
