The last few days on Facebook, Konami has been teasing the appearance of the special guests attending the upcoming 2014 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG North American World Championship Qualifier. Today, Konami formally announced that the guests will be Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors Marc Thompson and Dan Green!
For Marc Thompson, whose roles include Rafael from Classic Yu-Gi-Oh! and Astral from Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, this will be his first appearance at any Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG event. Dan Green, the voice of Yugi and of Tetsu Trudge from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, is a veteran of Konami’s shindigs, most recently appearing at the 2013 World Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada. Neither of them make very many appearances at anime conventions or other public events, so this will be an extremely rare opportunity to see them both together!
The 2014 North American WCQ will take place from July 11 through 13 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. Keep your eyes on the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG events page for more details to be posted.
Don’t be surprised to see a schedule highlighted by scripted live duels filled with exciting new cards from the Dragons of Legend booster. Will we get a duel that rivals the craziness from last year’s World Championship?
This actually happened at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship 2013.
Update (June 25): Konami has now uploaded a full schedule for the WCQ. Yugi and Astral will have a scripted live duel on Sunday the 13th. Epic! Marc will be signing autographs on the 12th and 13th, and Dan will be signing on the 11th, 12th, and 13th.
Furthermore, on the 13th, all feature matches and Yugi and Astral’s live duel will be live streamed. Check the Event Coverage section throughout the weekend for continuous updates of the WCQ.
